I want to try eating healthier, not eating anything with GMOs. Does anyone have any websites that might help me? I don't really know where to start other then the obvious things. I usually buy organic vegetables and I know a lot of the fruit at stores is genetically modified, but need help with other healthier choices. TIA

I would love to eat zero GMOs. I have no answers, and my fear is most GMOs are not labeled as such so I dont know where to start. Unless I were to grow my own food, which is not an option for another year...

Find local farmers and buy from them.



Or, grow your own!

I also worry about GMOs reproducing with natural plants and contaminating everything in the future. I would be really interested in getting some seeds and holding onto them until I am able to grow my own. Monsanto has just monopolized crops. There are hardly any soybeans that are not GMO since a farmer who uses monsantos soy beans can pollinate a farmer miles down the road and contaminate non GMO plants with out the farmers knowledge. I read the same is happening with corn. I worry :(

Check out this site - http://www.bountifulgardens.org/



We ordered seeds from them last year (some to plant, some to save), and we've just placed our order for this year.
