California will be voting soon, as to whether foods with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) will be labeled for consumers.
The movie Genetic Roulette shows the correlation between GMO foods and almost every recent health problem Americans have suffered from, since GMOs were introduced by Monsanto in the mid 1990's.
American's have had an epidemic increase in cancer, obesity, allergies, autism, diabetes, asthma, intestinal disorders, infertility and birth defects.
Genetic Roulette features interviews with physicians, scientists, farmers, dieticians, chefs and educators all discussing the problems with genetically engineered foods.
The bad news, our grandchildren could be sterile.
The good news, popcorn is still safe. (Whew! I dodged a bullet there.)
Grab a cup of non-GMO tea and watch the film.
My new resolutions:

It should be noted that dog foods have genetically modified corn and soy as well, so if you have a pet that is allergic to its food, keep this in mind. The rule of thumb is, if it's not labeled "organic" or "non-GMO," beware.
Now, it's time to clean out the pantry...
