Are You Feeding Your Family Wannabe Food – Look At This List!

Found this list of genetically altered foods – are you feeding these to your family?  LOOK AT HOW THE NEW GENES ARE INTRODUCED INTO THE ORIGINAL FOOD – BY WAY OF A BACTERIA/VIRUS.

This is why foods must be labeled properly!

How would you know if you are feeding your family real food as nature intended or wannabe food for profit by big corporations?
