It is safe to say that you should probably just buy locally.
I guess I am going to starve ;)
Seriously, this is out of control.
NOT THE COOKIES! Say it isn't so!
NOT THE COOKIEEEEEEEEES!

But why do the non-gmo companies have to be so expensive (in general)?
The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

we need a list of what isn't genetically modified. Guess no more cereal since every damn thing is on this list.
to GMO"S and monsanto i believe in the free market educate consumers to decide what they wanna buy and eat not government regulations or buracracts deciding what we can buy eat and put in our body's.
Albert Camus — 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'
enough people already are educated but these global giants have infiltrated government and prevent us from being able to make educated decisions because they prevent labeling and furthermore they have been allowed to become monster fish who've devoured the little guys who can't compete.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

They brag that their chips are "all natural" but they were fried in Canola Oil! I tried to contact lays to complain and never could find a REAL way to do so.

But I guess it's better than having pesticides on the food.
In reality, fractions of percentages of quantities of ingredients may be exempt, but overall, the vast majority cannot be GMO.
I'd like to see 100% non GMO, but as of now, I'll take 99'ish % non-GMO.
If you have info that says otherwise, I'd be interested to know.
GMO is not currently defined as organic So far.
I thought I was doing well eating that "Kashi" crap. You know, "7 whole grains on a mission." I realized it was a Kellogg's product on a mission to make me grow tumors like a lab rat.
These giant corporations are spawning other companies that look like healthy alternatives, but are just repackaged crap. It's like there is no escape.
I knew fruit loops and cheetos were bad but GMO bad?! Cheerios too?!?
"Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About" (That is "They" with a capital T!)
I know it seems like a hokey book, but I'll read anything that I can learn something from and this is what I learned in this book (among other things).
He says, as a rule of thumb, never eat anything produced by a publicly traded company. Here is a perfect example as to why. Public companies (Kellogs, ticker K, trades on the New York Stock Exchange) answer first to their shareholders. They exist to make money, first and foremost. As a result, they cut corners. But further, they are masters of image manipulation. as we now know with their "Kashi" line. They know exactly the buttons to push, the strings to pull to make it "look" healthy without ever coming out and saying it. They have the resources to put into PR & marketing that create the illusion that we buy into without questioning.
Here is another rule of thumb, that I read in some hippy vegan book:
If it is made from a plant, eat it.
If it is made in a plant, don't eat it.
Ha ha ha.
Hey, are you back home?
I need a little break. This GMO stuff is bittersweet, no pun intended.
safe and sound, bird in hand. I sent you a couple of texts. Thank you Jefferson.
Will respond after dinner.
It probably would have been better shorter to list what is not GMO.
1- Assume that every "major" industrial food manufacturer is using GMO's in production -- AS WELL AS all the other chemicals and toxins and unpure processes and ingredients.
This means Big Household Names we were raised to accept as Trustworthy Big Household Names:
General Mills, Nabisco, Kellogs, Hunts, Cambells, Hersheys, Nabisco blah blah blah
If you see their ads and logos everywhere, and know their names by heart? That's a red flag
They are poisoning the population.
DO NOT BUY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS, OR ANY OF THEIR SUBSIDIARIES PRODUCTS
2- If any product contains any of these things:
- Sugar Cane
DO NOT BUY IT. COMPLETELY ELIMINATE THESE SUBSTANCES FROM YOUR DIET
3- If you ever have the choice between buying plant food (fruits vegetables etc) standard or organic:
SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY AND BUY ORGANIC
4- For the remainder:
IF it grows out of the ground, swims in the water, or has eyes a nose a mouth and legs ... ie. it is a whole living being ..
This is potentially Real Food
IF somebody somewhere has taken a bunch of stuff and did who knows what to it ... mixed it together and put it in a colored box on a shelf ...
IT MIGHT NOT BE. SUSPECT IT
I follow these rules and eat 90% vegetables, free range poultry and meats, wild seafood, some clean (unrefined) rice and spelt wheat.
That's it. I avoid GMO's and industrial processing.
And I eat like a king.
Follow these rules for yourself and your family?

Ignore them at your peril
I've been buying organic everything since I learned about Monsanto. I just learned the organic cereal I buy (Cascadian Farm) is owned by General Mills who uses GMOs in everything. How can I support an organic subsidiary of a GMO company now that I know this? Answer: I can't. There are other organic cereals.
Alacer (maker of Emergen-C, for one) has claimed it uses no GMO ingredients, no high-fructose corn syrup, and no MSG. But last year it was purchased by Pfizer. Well, we'll see if that changes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alacer_Corp.
What *aren't* the big corporations taking over? I guess the only real answer is to buy locally-grown produce, buy organic produce, eat whole foods prepared at home, and look for vitamins/supplements made with whole food concentrates.
.. are excellent, reasonably priced, and so far, GMO free.
...can be found at the Non-GMO Project site:
(this page loads slowly for some reason, give it a second)
These folks are taking the initiative to label non-GMO products, because our votes for labeling GMO products are getting "lost". This list is growing by the day! And there's an iPhone APP shopping guide, too! Be healthy!
"Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." -John Quincy Adams
Free includes debt-free!
Mon Dieu! This list is horrific.
Thanks for posting though. I've been eating paleo/primal and already spending 1/2 my life in the kitchen prepping food, now everything else will have to be scrutinized and made from scratch...I'll never be able to leave....
Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.

Includes about everything we eat can someone post what we should buy/eat for each of these categories.
Do your best have no expectations
I grabbed the pdf.
Basically all cereal
That's just about everything. :/
Fortunately I started 125+ seeds today to transplant in a few weeks. All heirloom/non-gmo and thats just the beginning... I've got lots more to start over the next few months. Looks like that may be the only way to eat healthy.
