Fear of chemicals in our food has taken on an outsized role in the food discussion. Too much of the debate have become … let’s say – a bit light on the facts and long on emotion. While these are important conversations to have, confusion and misinformation about these issues abound as sound bites are traded as evidence for each “side” and everyone talks past each other.Whether it’s fear of additives in processed food or pesticides used in growing crops, too many people are needlessly wondering if we are slowly poisoning ourselves.

Biotech Blog—Shopping for Honesty: Sorting Out Non-GMO Claims – استثناء, مركز العلوم في المصلحة العامة – قبل جريج جافي (أبريل 17)

Some companies market their food product as “non-GMO” to create a nonexistent distinction that gives them a competitive advantage (sometimes at a premium price). على سبيل المثال, Tropicana Orange Juice includes the “Non-GMO Project” seal on its package, yet its sole ingredient is oranges, and there are no commercially grown, genetically engineered oranges. Every brand of orange juice is naturally “non-GMO,” provided the only ingredient is oranges. The same can be said for Emerald Natural Almonds or Woodstock Peanut Butter, which both have “Non-GMO Product” seals even though their only ingredient is almonds or peanuts, and there are no GM varieties of those nuts.” – الارتباط
