Ugh! Organic does not mean Non-GMO?
Seriously. "GMO" is the altering of the food DNA. It changes the genes of your food via a real science lab. "Organic" as the industry uses this term is only to indicate that no pesticides have been used to treat the soil or the crop. It's hard to get both unless you grow your own food. Sadly, a lot of food goes through the transgenic process in order for farmers not to be pressed to use pesticides. So much of our "organic" food is GMO.
Nonetheless, we can grow our own food. There are various companies online willing to sell you saved non-GMO organic seeds. Start growing your own food right now.
I will be addressing this topic in my book next March.
