October is Non GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) Month

There are Non-GMO events, protests, folks are trying to stop GMO's, encourage heirloom/organic seed saving and if GMO's are in products or produce is GMO, make it mandatory/law to label GMO foods as such. Here are some websites for more information. Have a nice weekend!

http://organicconsumers.org/monsanto/index.cfm Millions Against Monsanto (Monsanto creates GMO foods/ seeds and is trying to take over the world's seed crops and not allow farmer's to save their own seeds)

Also see my post on iradiation/ produce codes... if produce little sticker reads a 4 digit PLU code beginning with a  #3 (example-3498) the food was irradiated, treated with radiation, to kill bacteria/bugs. What does that do to the food? What does it do to us when we eat it?
