Genetically Modified Foods

This 1-hour video entitled "The Health Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods" convinced me to stop buying and eating GMO foods and to spend extra time to shop with more care avoiding that any GM food ends up in our shopping cart. The author of the talk Jeffrey Smith also wrote a book called "Seeds of Deception". This video presentation was the straw that broke the camels back. No more GM food for us, no more Wrighley's chewing gum, no more Lays potato chips, no more Kelloggs cereals, ...

Greenpeace advises on how to buy in order to avoid GM food. This is a very difficult task in the US. Here is the Greenpeace advice for the US. For Spain, Greenpeace has produced a specific booklet listing all GMO food products by supermarket chains and manufacturer. A green list of safe products and a red list of products to avoid because of risk or certainty of GM content. See if your local Greenpeace office has a similar booklet for your country.
