Genetically modified food concerns

I am extremely concerned about GMOs in our food sources. It's something we think about constantly. Because the truth is that most products have genetically modified organisms in them. If it's made with corn or wheat or soy, then most probably it does. And genetically modified foods are really detrimental to our health, especially children. A lot of the companies that are creating products, like Agent Orange and these sort of poisonous gases during the wars, are now the same companies that are distributing this genetically modified food, because they found a way to take that and make it into an insecticide and put it into the seed. So basically the corn that you're eating is grown from a seed that has the Agent Orange product in it. So when you think about it in those terms, you really realize. So when you think about it in those terms, you really realize oh my goodness, I can't give this to my children. And this is why we suddenly are a nation with allergies. Everybody or most people you meet know somebody that has some sort of wheat or dairy allergy, some sort of allergy. And the dairy allergy is because the cows are eating this genetically modified corn, so it's just this whole cycle. So I eat organically. I grow most of my own foods. I go to the farmer's markets. I'm very passionate about the subject. And I just want to make sure people become more aware.
