I was wary of the corn. Sad days indeed, as corn is in nearly everything!
Between corn and soybeans, it is extremely difficult to find anything without GMOs on the ingredients list. Bread! For crying out loud, try to find a loaf of bread without high fructose corn syrup and/or GM soybean oil.
Produce that has been conventionally grown consists of 4 numbers and organically grown produce has 5 numbers prefaced with the number 9. The PLU code on produce that has been genetically modified also has five numbers but the number is prefaced with the number 8.
Just think about how many breakfast cereals are made with corn! And think about all of the breakfast cereal children eat!

And its these companies who are a thread, not the government.

That belongs to the Farmers who fight them day and night!

The guidance will apply to all Clean Water Act programs, EPA said www.naylornetwork.com...
“EPA and the Corps have attempted to make an end run around two Supreme Court decisions that limited their authority under the CWA by issuing a draft guidance document giving field staff a plethora of approaches to make jurisdictional determinations.www.cattlenetwork.com...
