Now that we have gotten over the U. S Government shutdown, let’s talk about something more important and beneficial to our lives. Non-Gmo month.
Gmo month. That’s right October is Non-Gmo month. Now, time for school. What is Gmo? And why are people so Non about it?
Well, Gmo’s are Genetically Modified Organisms. Gmo’s are anything that is genetically modified or/and manipulated by humans in a laboratory environment. Gmo’s are bad because they are altered of their DNA that is not naturally occurring in nature.
What a better time to bring this up than the month of October. Why? Halloween of course. Candy is filled to the brim with Gmo’s.

2. High fructose corn syrup (GMO corn)
3. Corn starch (GMO corn)
4. Soy lecithin (GMO soy)
5. Soy bean oil (GMO soy)
