They are in basically anything we eat now a days and there is really nothing we can do about it other than growing our own food/livestock from our own seeds. I've come to accept I am going to eat GMOs since I do not have the means to grow my own food and I am ok with that (for the most part). But I do believe poeple have a right to know what they are ingesting.  I believe GMO food should have labels! In the movie, GMO OMG, they mention that large food companies are doign everything they can to prevent this from happening! 12-02-2014 5:17pm
