Why You Need a Hoop House BAD!

Genetically modified freak foods are in 80% of all packaged foods in America and you don't have a right to know according to the FDA. You're supposed to trust them and their corporate masters that everything is safe and good to eat. Well actually they haven't done such a good job on the drugs they approve with testing, so how well could they possible do with GMO foods that have never been tested? That makes you the guinea pig, doesn't it? How does that grab you? You good with that? WHEN ITS LIKE THIS THEN THERE IS ONLY ONE OPTION- GROW YOUR OWN FOOD OR PERISH!

Infographic: All The Genetically Modified Food You're Eating

GMO crops have infiltrated 80% of all the packaged food in the United States, and no one has told you. Here's why.
Genetically modified food is in a store near you today. In fact, it's been there for years. You may not know it, but in all the fracas over genetically modified food, one point is often left out: You've been eating it for a long time and no one has told you. This infographic fromNature's Path--which makes organic cereals, bars, and waffles that contain no GMO ingredients, they'd like you to know--shows where you're getting your genetically modified treats, and why no one has told you:

Many crops are genetically modified so frequently, it's nearly impossible to find non-GMO versions. These modifications usually involve either a seed manufacturer making their seeds genetically resistant to a certain type of weed-killer (that the seed company also conveniently sells--synergy!) or to make plants resistant to certain pests naturally.
You may not know that you're eating these crops--despite the fact that they appear in 80% of all packaged food sold in the country--because the U.S. is one of the few places in the developed world that doesn't require food producers to disclose whether or not their ingredients have any modifications.
If something is labeled "organic" by the USDA, that means it has no GMO crops. The Non-GMO Project is also working on a system for labeling products that aren't genetically enhanced. To be fair, there isn't any science that proves that GMO crops are at all bad for consumption; there also aren't any that confirm that they're safe. For now, we're in the dark. And more and more GMO products--like Monsanto's sneaky, unlabeled sweet corn, the first direct-to-consumer GMO food--are coming to market every day. The full infographic is here:
