I'm glad you spotted that. Because yeah, the article does say that it's something like 5000 times stronger in GMO foods, and it can't be "washed away". Anyway, I'm still eating my soy nuts (regular) until I can find organic soy nuts. Just in moderation, as in everything.

I know it can be expensive and I totally understand that we can't change everything at once!

Swap sugar to organic cane sugar for tea and coffee keep using white for baking ect.

Shop farmers markets whenever possible.

Price check you may be surprised organics do not last as long on the shelf so sales happen often at grocery stores.

Look for no name brand organics I know Canadian Superstore and I believe Sobeys in the USA both carry them.

Buy apples, celery, berries, peaches, nectarines, spinach, grapes, peppers, lettuce, kale, coffee and meat(if possible) these foods have been found to have the most pesticides you can not wash off.

Do not waste your money buying Onions, Pineapple, Avocado Asparagus, Sweet peas, Mango, Eggplant, Cantaloupe (domestic) Kiwi, Cabbage, Watermelon, Sweet Potatoes, Grapefruit or Mushrooms they can all be washed well and you are good to go.

VitoVino and Kohsamui thanks for doing some reading it's amazing what we do not know about our food so education is the key then you can make up your own minds. My hubby was not going to change his eating based on some documentaries then he found non gmo organic potato chips taste better than regular ones; we are all motivated by different things.

Take care.

Thank you for all the helpful tips! Great advice.

Funny about the potato chips. I've read on line that people who are eating non GMO popcorn swear it tastes better. I didn't really know what to think about this, but it's been repeated over and over. I guess there's something to it!
