    Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much
    the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

    Dorthy,

    Once again I truly enjoyed your article. It is wonderful so many companies are banning GMO food. I feel if enough people become aware of it in the USA, they too will rise up against it and demand healthy food. The problem our country deals with is these corporations find loop holes and will label it to slide under the radar. Producing your own food or purchasing from the local farmer is becoming the safest way to eat healthy. Articles like your bring awareness to the issue. Kuddos!

      Thank you Kristi! I agree with you completely on the issue of Genetically Modified Organisms in our food. I do have hope however that the independent sector will slowly override the corporations. The word about GMO’s are slowly but surely being spread across the public. What will happen soon is that the independent agencies will start labeling their food Non-GMO, which will increase profits. The main thing is voting with your wallet. Is it just me or have you noticed an increase in farmer’s markets in the past few years? Thanks for the comment!

        Dorthy,

        I haven’t really seen a growth so much in the rural area where I live, as most people grow their own gardens. I do know that I have heard of more people interested in the farmer markets in the city. The Health Food stores are so accessible and many people shop there after work or while out running errands. The farmer markets are only available on certain days of the week and not always on the days people are doing their errands. I hope in the future in cities the European mindset of open markets will be appreciated and accepted. Having that type of availability would increase the promotion of non-gmo foods and support local farmers.

        Kristi
