Last night, as I sat here at this computer, thinking about Monsanto and GMOs while smugly dipping rice chips into Sabra hummus, I happened across this graphic. Yeek!
Immediately, I fired off a fb comment to my daughter-in-law Sue, who designs apps, to ask if there’s an app for the iphone that identifies products with GMOs in them. Right away, one of Sue’s friends fired back this info. Thanks, Mary!
