Wish I Were in Europe

I am a US citizen who is bombarded by GMOs. The only way that I can avoid them is by eating 100% organic food. Most people in the US do not seem to realize that we aren't talking about hybrid tomatoes. GMOs pose a serious issue.

Did you know that a study confirmed that 55% of rats born to animals fed GMO soy while pregnant died?

Do you know that GMO corn has been developed that contains 2,4-D, a major component of Agent Orange? Exposure to 2,4-D causes cancer, reproductive problems, neurotoxicity, and immunosuppression. It contains dioxin, one of the "dirty dozen" group of extremely toxic chemicals that are resistant to environmental degradation. Does anyone want their children to eat crops sprayed with a chemical component of Agent Orange? Does anyone want it in their groundwater?
