In the United States – nearly 75 percent of all supermarket foods are genetically engineered or modified in some way. And while this fact alone is enough to make you think twice about what you buy at your local foodstore – it gets worse. (Time: 6:06)
The United States doesn't require labeling of genetically modified foods - so you really have no idea whether you're buying something natural or vegetables filled with fish genes - and that's how biotech and agribusiness companies want it. But - a new grassroots campaign is underway - with hopes of toppling the big biotech bullies - and outing genetically modified foods.
So - if you think that you can't control whether or not you eat genetically modified foods - than everything you know is wrong! Joining Thom Hartmann now is Alexis Baden-Mayer - Political Director of the Organic Consumers Association.
