Most Corn Is Hiding

GMO corn is engineered to produce its own insecticide called Bt toxin. Some newer varieties are also resistant to weed killers or herbicides. Avoiding GMO corn can be challenging because so many food products are derived from it or contain it. Obvious sources are sweet corn, corn muffins, corn chips, corn flakes, tortillas and popcorn. Less apparent sources may be hidden in the ingredient list, such as high fructose corn syrup, regular corn syrup, corn oil, corn starch, corn flour, dextrose, glucose and sugar alcohols such as xylitol. Most vitamin C supplements are synthesized from GMO corn.
Soy Is Sneaky, Too

GMO soy is engineered to resist being sprayed with weed killers. Popular soy foods are soy milk, tofu, soy chips, edamame, miso, soy sauce, baby formula, protein drinks, energy bars, bread made with soy flour and meat substitutes such as soy "turkey." Soybean oil is an ingredient in mayonnaise, salad dressings, prepared foods, canned tuna and supplements such as vitamin E. Partially hydrogenated soybean oil, a major source of trans fat, is used in baked goods and fried foods. Soy can be disguised as textured vegetable protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and natural flavoring, so reading labels is essential.

Other Sources of GMOs

Cottonseed oil, found in many processed foods and canned nuts, is mostly GMO. Canola oil, an ingredient in many so-called “healthy” foods, is also mostly GMO. Canola mayonnaise and salad dressings, therefore, are usually GMO, just like their soybean oil counterparts. Most commercial sucrose, or table sugar, is made from GMO sugar beets instead of sugar cane. Hawaiian papaya and some varieties of zucchini and yellow squash are GMO. Many dairy foods, unless specified otherwise on the label, contain traces of recombinant growth hormone (RBGH), administered to cows to increase milk production. Meat products that are not certified organic or grass-fed have been raised on GMO corn and soy.

The genetically modified FLAX seed was named "Triffid" by Dr. Alan McHughen, the scientist who developed it at the University of Saskatchewan in the 1990s.
Renegade Genetically Modified Flax Seed is Crippling Canadian Market : TreeHugger

----------------------
The GM varieties approved include Ranger Russet, Russet Burbank and Atlantic, produced by J.R. Simplot Co. The potatoes have been genetically modified to reduce black spots and bruises by lowering certain enzymes. These varieties have also been also modified to produce less acrylamide -- a potentially cancer-causing chemical that forms when starchy foods are heated at high temperatures.

The varieties use a new form of genetic engineering known as RNA interference, according to the Center for Food Safety, an industry watchdog. In a press statement released in March 2015, Andrew Kimbrell, the center's director, said the consequences of this new form of genetic engineering are not yet well understood and referred to the introduction of GM potatoes as "risky." The center favors labeling GM foods so that consumers know which foods contain GMOs.
Some Food Suppliers Say No

Research submitted to the FDA by Simplot to gain approval has not been made public.
ConAgra Foods and McCain are among the food suppliers that say they won't use GM potatoes, according to a March 2015 Chicago Tribune article. Food chain McDonald's has also rejected Simplot's GM potatoes.

"Internal Documents: Monsanto Knew For Years Their Products Damaged Farms"



https://www.zerohedge.com/health/internal-documents-monsanto-knew-years-their-products-damaged-farms


"The documents (some of them date back more than a decade) have been uncovered during a recent successful $265 million lawsuit brought against both firms by a Missouri farmer. The internal documents were seen and released by the Guardian. They also revealed how Monsanto opposed some third-party product testing, in order to curtail the generation of data that might have worried regulators. In some of the internal BASF emails, employees were even joking about sharing “voodoo science“ and hoping to stay “out of jail.”"
