 Google? I never said anything about Google.
 I never use it.
 I use IXQUICK so I don't understand why you mentioned Google.
 So your answer to my question boiled down is go to health food stores to get non GMO food? Right?
 Thanks for your time.

   Google is also a user of your privacy. Get the same searching done privately
at and there are lots of updates on what food is GMO and what is not.

As far as finding food that is not GMO you must never forget the basic principle of
why GMO plants are popular in corporate farming. They are designed to be cheaper. They could use the genetics to
make them have more nutrition but Monsanto designed their plants to be toxic to insects(living creatures)
and to survive their weed killers better than the weeds. The way you avoid GMO is the same reason you want to
buy a better quality product because it is worth it to you to pay more. That is true of food
as well as cars, electronics or clothes. If you only buy the cheapest of everything such as
the mattress you spend a third of your life on or your diet you basically are cheapening your
health and life. Nobody wants a cheap car if it costs you more to maintain in the repair shop.
Why would you think less of your own body? Of course, if you are young and starving you would eat the GMO
food to stay alive because getting cancer down the line would not seem urgent to you. As your personal
resources increase it naturally makes sense to upgrade what you consume since as Obamacare has proven it is anything
but "Affordable" except to those at the low end or highest ends of the economic scale. You may decide
you cannot afford to get sick and eating healthy because it is a worthy investment.

So when you go to the store you look for deals. Right. So now you set your criteria higher but look for the deal
on the better product. Just know 90% of the cheap packaged food is GMO and has unhealthy substances in it.
There are sales on organic foods at health grocery chains but you can expect it to cost more because it is currently more costly to produce today. If you refuse to buy the cheap stuff and buy organic the market will increase and companies will invest in cheaper ways including automation to produce healthy food. It is cheaper to drink tap water but
I choose to buy spring water from a local tested mountain source because its worth it to me. Someone else may just
choose to buy a water filter to make it taste better or screen out a particular harmful substance. I know this all should be obvious but I think some forget how the free enterprise system is suppose to work. The consumer is ultimately
the moral agent that keeps corporations in check instead of the government which is inherently corrupt.
