Is What You Are Eating Eating You?: Avoiding GMOs (2013)

Episode 3
Available worldwide

What kids eat really matters. GMOs are pervasive in processed foods, especially GMO sugar cane, GMO soy, GMO corn (including the ubiquitous corn syrup), as well as cottonseed oil and canola oil. Maybe as much as 80% of the food in a typical supermarket contains GMO ingredients. Eliminating most processed foods from the diet can be a great way to avoid GMOs. A tour with Jeffrey Smith through a health-food market highlights tips for identifying non-GMO foods.

Popular opinion can also work toward eliminating GMOs from our food. In May 2013, a loosely organized movement resulted in an estimated two million people protesting Monsanto, one of the leading GMO biotech firms. Many states are holding referendums that would require all GMO foods to be labeled as such. The biotech firms pour money into defeating these measures, knowing that citizens, given the information, would choose to avoid GMOs.

I live in South Africa - the same crops list apply to our agriculture?

Thought I was pretty knowledgeable about this, but never thought about supplements! So grateful for the information and for Gai TV! :)

This video might be dated since i've found a list from 2015 from ISAA (International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech) were its list new GMO crops worldwide.
Please take a look

Thank you so much for what you do. You have opened my eyes and I intend to eat Non-GMO as much as I possibly can and spread the word.! God Bless you and let's hope we can have these foods banned!
