I get really excited when I start to see fresh corn on the cob appearing in grocery stores. It means summer is almost here!
There are two foods I will only eat organic or if I absolutely know it is GMO-free and that is soy and corn, two of the biggest GMO crops in the world. If you see really cheap corn in the store, odds are high that it is GMO corn. Be sure to ask the grocer.
I was in Trader Joe's yesterday and saw corn on the cob! I asked a couple people in the store if their corn was GMO-free and one guy said, "Absolutely! And if Prop 37 had passed, we'd be able to label the corn so you would know."
OMG! I started laughing. He had no idea he was talking to a Label GMOs advocate. This led to a very lively conversation about the food system, eating real foods and ended with a high-5!
People have a right to know what's in their food, and thank you Trader Joe's for selling GMO-free corn on the cob for our summer corn pleasure!
