"The Zen diet … it’s the only one for me. It’s called eating to live,
not living to eat. The people that eat to live will survive a lot

A new Californian law may require manufacturers in the United States to label genetically modified foods but even if California passes this law now and other states follow suit, it could be a long time before labeling is the norm. As many as 70 to 80 percent of the packaged foods in the supermarket contain GM ingredients and even some non-packaged food could be dangerous. The best way for consumers to protect themselves from genetically modified organisms, GMOs, is to learn which products and types of foods most likely contain them, plus how to identify safe foods.
GM corn is in everything
Corn is one of the biggest GM food products that threatens consumers. A study published in the Food and Chemical Toxicology journal found that rats fed GM corn developed large tumors. Corn-based ingredients are prevalent in processed foods. Even items like vinegar may be distilled from GM corn.

Staying away from all non-organic and packaged foods is the best way to keep GMOs out of the body.
