After watching the documentary ‘Food Inc’ recently, which essentially exposes that conventional corn is owned by Monsanto now, I’ve decided to boycott corn and soy since the genetic modification is so widespread (over 90% of these crops now). Another factor was an audiobook entitled ‘You’re Eating What’ by Jeffrey Smith available here which explains more about the health effects of these foods. Canola oil is also to be avoided as that is the third major food crop that is GMO. Of course avoiding these products requires a constant reading of labels and learning of individual ingredients to find all the byproducts that pervade our food supply now but I feel it’s a worthy endeavor.
On a somewhat related note Whole Foods has decided to throw in the towel and not resist genetically engineered crops anymore
