In the U.S. over eighty per cent of the soybeans, corn, and canola grown in the U.S. are Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO. Recently, Aphaluck Bhatiasevi wrote about some of the name brands that use GMO.

Nestle baby food, Good Time instant cereal, Knorr cup soup, Nissin cup noodle, Lay’s Stax potato chips, Pringles snacks, and High Class Vita-Tofu soybean curd were found to contain GMOs.

However, it’s not just the U.S. that has been plagued by GMO-filled products but now more foods in Thailand contain GMOs. In America the main issues faced are the danger of the foods and the law requiring labelling. Currently, there is a legal battle with Monsanto, one of the first producers of the toxic pest control substances, DDT and PCB, as well as other GMO lobbyists fighting a law to label GMO filled products.
