Genetically Modified Foods are a real concern today. Every time we shop, we are at risk of purchasing items of food, which have been genetically altered or modified, in small and large ways. Researchers provide us with sometimes shocking information that we as conscientious cooks need to know. This education is vital to our understanding of what we put into our mouths to nourish our bodies and those of our families. Armed with these facts we will be aware of the fundamentals behind buying organic fruits and vegetables, and which, specifically, we may still include on our shopping lists.

More and more reports are being written in favor of buying organically grown fruits, vegetables and yes, even dairy, eggs, meats, poultry, fish and seafood. Knowing where to shop and who to trust is where reading, and tapping into public awareness becomes not only important but also essential.Below are a number of links to websites, organizations, videos, charts, facts and even one for the F.D.A. (Food and Drug Administration). I suggest taking a good half-hour and exploring what’s in the news, before your next shopping trip. The more you know what is happening to our food the better the chance you’ll make the right decisions in your selection of what goes into your shopping cart. You know … your health depends on it.
