Trying to Avoid GMOs



In Canada GM crops include alfalfa, beet,canola, corn & soy. If you try and avoid processed foods including sweeteners, corn flakes, corn syrup, canola oil and white sugar you're already doing a great job limiting your intake.

Canada imports squash, papaya & vegetable oils which are often GM. 

Buying organic takes out the risk, as genetic modification is prohibited for all organic products. By purchasing organic meats you are ensuring you are not eating what the farm animals have (usually GM corn, soy and canola).

Buy cane sugar or organic sugars and corn (ask your farmer what kinds of seeds they plant :)

It's used around the world in thousands of dishes and comes in a multitude of varieties.  We love Purple Striped and 'Music' an Ontario variety considered a hardnecked vs softnecked. 

In both world wars garlic was given to soldiers to help fend off gangrene. It wards off food poisoning, helps our hearts by relaxing blood vessels allowing blood to pass more easily, known to decrease risk of various cancers and can help prevent the common cold. Need we say more?!?
