Genetically Engineered foods–and now fish and mosquitos are disconcerting.  Please look into the issue. There is alot of information on organicconsumers.org (Organic Consumers Association), and Jeffery M. Smith, Institute of Responsible Technology.

To those of us who have been following this issue we can be heartened that our consumer choices are successfully steering food companies towards “non-GMO” (non-Genetically Modified Organisms) labels!!  There are already over 17,000 non GMO labels on products in the U.S.!!

The other apparent/possible good news about GMOs is called “genetic drift.”  This happens mostly in plants. check out the jars of blue and red jelly beans in this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_drift   Genomes have “correction” genes so that after about 5 generations, the plant has the propensity to remove the defect and return back to normalcy!!
