LABEL's and the GMO issue!

confused about the product labeling?

free-range - all natural - organic

do you think it is all the same? no, it is not.
free-range chickens might be able to run around, BUT do they eat what a chicken is supposed to eat? or do they get a dose of growth hormones and antibiotics with their breakfast?

here you can read it from the source:
USDA website:

understanding organic labeling:

and following is something near and dear to my heart and I think one of the most important issue we need to deal with NOW!!! we only have one planet, don't let it get to waste because of some idiots with too much money and the lust of power and wanting more!

avoid GM (genetically modified/engineered) food, and the best source to find info about what to look for while shopping is definitely the http://truefoodnow.org/

here THE link to the shopping guide!
and this might be a 'shocker' for a few out there (I love them too, but will not buy them again)

"May contain GMO ingredients"
Boca, unless labeled organic
Morningstar Farms"
(source: true food network shopping guide)

as a general rule:
the big four to only buy organic (also read labels of processed products that might contain those ingredients) are:
corn, soy, canola oil, cotton (cottonseed oil)

With everything we buy we have a VOTE! take advantage of that, let's make sure there will be real nature and true food left for our children and grandchildren, protect the environment with buying non-GM foods!
it is up to each and everyone of us! NOW!
