Answer: That's a question that, at least to me, has no clear, easy answer. With more and more genetically engineered crop plants becoming available, and the amazing array of ingredients found in many foods--especially packaged "convenience" foods--it seems likely that if genetically engineered plant material isn't already in many of our common foods, it soon will be. Only strict, and strictly enforced, food labeling laws will help here, I think.
Have you voiced your concerns about the proposed federal organic standards? If not, I urge you to make your voice heard, as lawmakers continue to work on this very important issue. If enough of us speak out, we may be able to maintain high safety standards--at least for products labelled "organic".
