10 Things You Can Do to Stop GMOs

1. Join us in promoting the Oregon Right to Know GMO labeling campaign.

2. Tell your legislators, family and friends that you want the right to know what’s in your food.

3. Let your grocery manager know that you want them to support labeling and GMO education.

4. Eat fresh!  While some produce is genetically engineered, most GMOs will be found in processed foods containing soy, corn, canola oil, non-cane sugars and cottonseed oil.  Eat more fresh vegetables and whole, unprocessed foods. Your body will thank you and you will avoid direct exposure to most genetically engineered foods.

5. Avoid the five products that are most likely to be genetically engineered (GE) – unless they state that they are not made with genetically engineered ingredients, have a verifiable claim such as Non-GMO Project Verified, or they are USDA certified organic: Corn, Soy, Canola, Cotton and Sugar made from beets (sugar from cane is NOT GE).

6. Look for the USDA Organic seal and buy organic – The National Organic Standards prohibit the intentional use of genetically engineered foods.

7. Download the Non-GMO Shopping Guide from the Institute for Responsible Technology and the Non-GMO Project for a list of brands with products that claim to be made without genetic engineering (also available via mobile app).

8. Comment!  It takes 30 seconds to tell the FDA that you have the right to know what’s in your food.

9. When in doubt, ask!  Contact the manufacturers of your favorite foods and ask if they contain genetically engineered products.  Get the information you need and you can let the company know how you feel about GE foods.   Ask them to join the Non-GMO Project.

10. Share the One Mom’s Story or Dining in the Dark videos with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter to encourage them to tell the FDA to Just Label It.
