One Dozen Resources for Thinking Critically About Genetically Engineered Food and Farming

Just saw a beautiful and moving film, "Bitter Seeds,"  about GMO cotton farmers in India through the lens of a young woman whose father committed suicide because of GMO-related debt. With all the buzz about GMO labeling, I thought Food Sleuth blog readers would enjoy having a list of resources to help find "food truth" on the topic.

  1. Thank you for the list. Very informative. I would also like to contribute on the use of GMO foods. Research on GMO foods has proved that it includes a "significant fragment of a viral gene" known as Gene VI, a new viral DNA in GMO foods causing food contamination. Here I have found the shocking facts about GMO corn risks & problems with GMO foods.

  2. Thank you for bringing this into attention, GMO foods needs serious discussion.
