Whether you are aware of it or not, powerful multinational corporations have been exerting undue influence over government and elected officials, and gradually hijacking and taking control of our food system in ways that profit the corporations and sabotage our and our planet’s health. Increasing numbers of people are learning this, getting angry, and taking action against it, and an unprecedented food fight is currently taking place in this country that literally will decide the future of our food.

Dr. Oz, Glyphosate, & More

By Melissa Diane Smith

The last few months there has been so much news about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our food and the pesticides that go with them, it’s difficult to keep up! Here’s a quick rundown of the most important consumer-oriented headlines:

ChipotleChipotle Says No to GMOs

In April, Chipotle Mexican Grill became the first restaurant chain to remove all direct sources of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the ingredients it uses in cooking.

According to the company, the tortillas, corn, rice, beans, vegetables, chips, salsa, and marinades used to cook the meats all are not genetically modified. The 1,831-restaurant chain also is now using GMO-free sunflower oil and rice bran oil in place of the soybean oil it used to use.
