Morning Milking Musings: Magic 8 (GMO)Ball

Hello All!

I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you all enjoyed delicious treats! Did any of those delicious treats contain GMOs?

I see so many labels that say “GMO free” on them, even things that are not food items.  There are a lot of articles out there that are meant to scare you, the consumer, away from GMOs. There are a lot of articles out there that also explain why GMOs, in fact, will not harm your health.  Given this is a morning musing, and is meant to be quick and to the point, I will not go into those details.

I will say, however, that some of the labels that read “GMO free” are about as useful as those that read “contains milk” on a gallon of 2%. Why? Because there are only 8 GMOs.

  1. Corn
  2. Cotton
  3. Canola
  4. Alfalfa
  5. Sugar Beets
  6. Papaya
  7. Squash
  8. Soybeans

Have a Happy New Year!
