Soon the canned goods will be safer because the harmful BPA lining in cans will be replaced with the "safer" option of a lining made from GMO corn. Who are they kidding? SAFER?!!

You're right. I only buy tomato paste in cans any more and that's only when I run out of the Bionatura brand in glass jars that I order. I did like having that as a backup option but I got out of the habit of depending on canned foods a long time ago. I would like to be able to eat canned fish but can't find any that I don't react to, anyway. I feel it is going to be just one more way that the average American's consumption of GMO corn will be increased, though.

I see the word modified corn more and more here in Europe on packet foods. Im not sure modified is GMO, i presume so. I just dont buy packets of anything aside from organic noodles,tinned tomato paste and plain tuna. There has just been a bit of a scandal in one of the scandanavian countries regard GM crops. Permission wastn given to grow it and someone went right ahead and grew it in open fields. Im a bit sketchy on the details, i just caught the tale end of a news report.

Actually, GM crops were approved, just not the variety grown.

This month is the first ever Non-GMO Month, with a special Non-GMO Day on 10/10/10. Close to 600 retailers nationwide are registered to participate! According to the USDA, in 2009, 93% of soy, 93% of cotton, and 86% of corn grown in the U.S. were GMO. It is estimated that over 90% of canola grown is GMO, and there are also commercially produced GM varieties of sugar beets, squash and Hawaiian Papaya. As a result, it is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 80% of packaged products in the average U.S. or Canadian grocery store.
