When you walk around your grocery store, it can be easy to just pick and choose, thinking that what you’re tossing into your cart was grown all-natural at a farm somewhere. However, many of those foods have been altered with science, some to tolerate more chemicals, some to withstand natural pests, and some to grow bigger, faster. What foods do you need to look out for?
Here’s the current genetically modified organisms (GMO) food list approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There are different variations of many of these (for example, there are around a dozen different GMO soybeans).
