Top 10 Worst GMO Foods
According to 2010 data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, just over 90% of all U.S. soybeans, 90% of U.S. sugar beets, and 85% of U.S. corn crops are genetically modified. (Because many foods contain cottonseed oil, it’s also worth noting that 90% of U.S. cotton crops are also genetically engineered.)
This very high percentage of genetic engineering in the production of corn, soybeans and sugar beets greatly increases exposure to GE foods among U.S. consumers since processed components from these foods are found in so many processed and prepackaged products. While these are the top three GMO crops, which are fairly well recognized as such, what are some of the other foods that are GMO? To answer this question I want to share with you an excellent article from the Natural Society website. They have listed the following foods as the “top 10 worst GMO foods for your “do not eat” GMO foods list.” Remember that foods that are certified USDA organic are not GMO.
