Top 10 Worst GMO Foods for Your GMO Foods List

 

Genetically modified foods (GMO foods) have been shown to cause harm to  humans, animals, and the environment, and despite growing opposition, more and  more foods continue to be genetically altered. It’s important to note that  steering clear of these foods completely may be difficult, and you should merely  try to find other sources than your big chain grocer. If produce is  certified USDA-organic, it’s non-GMO (or supposed to be!) Also, seek out local  farmers and booths at farmer’s markets where you can be ensured that the crops  aren’t GMO.
