I am normally not an alarmist, but there’s that gut feeling you get when you know something’s not quite right.

That’s how I’ve always felt about GMOs, and I’m not alone. Researchers at The International Journal of Biological Sciences have linked GMO corn to organ failure. And not just any old corn, but Monsanto corn. And if that name rings a bell it’s because you’ve watched Food, Inc. or because you recall they were the makers of Agent Orange.

This news may not raise your brows until you discover how much of our nation’s corn supply this is affecting. Hamida Kinge writes, “Currently, 93 percent of soybeans and 80 percent of corn grown in the United States are Roundup Ready; they have been altered genetically, and that alteration is patented by Monsanto.”

Still not worried? Take a peek at the products below that contain corn.  If you’re not buying non-GMO foods, you can bet that aome of your meals are laced with a Monsanto cocktail. To view the entire list of foods containing corn visit CornAllergens.com.

What can you do? Eat organic. Shop Local. Know your Farmer. And tell others about Monsanto and GMOs.
