Are Your Cereals GMO Verified?
GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are organisms whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.

Many of the foods you eat, including your breakfast cereals, have GMOs in them.

Recently, Cheerios became GMO free and Grape Nuts became GMO verified, meaning that a third party verifies that everything in their product is GMO free.

GMO's include chemicals and food dyes that have been linked to cancer.

So why would you allow these chemicals in your body? Perhaps it's because you no idea. It's time to educate yourself.

Consumer advocate, Leah Segedie, joins Andrea and Lisa to discuss GMOs and how some of the popular brands that you buy regularly at the grocery store are becoming non-GMO and how you can affect change by continuing this very healthy trend.
