There has been an incredible amount of misinformation about the new Non-GMO seal that was recently announced.

After having had multiple conversations with the USDA, I shot a video yesterday that clears up the confusion about this new Non-GMO seal and I discuss two very serious potential problems that loom ahead, as a result of the introduction of this seal.

At the end of the day, it is critically important to remember that (1) organic is always a superior option to non-gmo and (2) non-gmo is never a substitute for organic.

If you’d like a full explanation on the difference between organic and non-gmo, please read this post.

    Organic and GMO-free are BOTH essential. Organic certification includes non-GMO but because of pollen contamination, there can be a small amount of GMO contamination of organic foods. The GMO-free label is a stricter standard.

    If you have to choose, “organic” is way better for your personal health.

    It is also important to support that GMO-free label whenever practical. That is part of overthrowing the whole chemistry-based agriculture paradigm that poisons ALL of us, and is a major contributor to increased carbon dioxide because that is what organisms turn into when they die and decay. People have to find out what they are eating and its consequences before the shift can occur.

    Meantime runoffs, etc. threaten all of us.

    Thank you Max! I have caught my friends and family thinking that the Non-GMO label from the Non-GMO Project is acceptable and a substitute for organic. I had to caution my Mom that she should stick to organic only. It is a trick and I can see the road this could head down.
    A similar thing happened with the “natural” labeling, people were falling for it too!
    Thank you for the post, hopefully people will be enlightened.

  • Hey Max.. ‘Non-GMO is never a substitute for organic’ is so true and I think some people automatically think it’s safe?

    I find what’s happening to our whole food supply DEEPLY disturbing.

    Thanks for your post.
