Sorry if this is a bit off-topic but it has me re-thinking the whole organic debate since an organic label seems the only sensible way to minimize the GMO content of my food.
I've just been reading about Montsanto's first genetically modified vegetable crop** - sweet corn - which being sold (un-labeled) at grocery stores. That means the BT toxin that they've introduced into the corn is in the food we eat (not just down the food chain somewhere).
** field corn is considered a grain, not a vegatable. 86% of field corn is GMO http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_food
I'm lucky that my feed store mills their own GMO-free chicken feed. It is priced half way between the conventional and organic.
Does anyone know what percentage of their conventional chicken feed is GMO?
ps. Are you satisfied with my references Onstad1?
