Check Out the Non GMO Project Site

This also raises some questions about corn: I love corn! Though you mentioned several times that corn in the US is mostly GMO. But, what if it is ORGANIC corn? I wonder if organic corn (Like Trader Joe's organic frozen corn) is non GMO. I will have to look into that.


Organic cannot be GMO.  Sometimes you'll see the phrase "grow without the use of synthetic pesticides" or something like that.  There is a brand of popcorn that does that for example.  That's GMO in all likelihood.  But organic cannot be GMO. 

Same is true with soy. Most soy is GMO, but organic is not. 

That said, for both corn and soy, with all of that GMO pollen floating around it is likely that even certified organic crops contain at least some GMO's in them.

Yeah, I finally confirmed the above from a pretty reliable source.  Trader Joe's is leading the way on this.  One of the store workers told me that they are slowly moving toward all GMO as the agricultural infrastructure is being built up.  I hope Americans support it and buy it.  That seems to be the trend!

Check out nongmoproject.org    You are starting to see their certifications on more and more products;  I just looked up the website from the certification on my soy coffee creamer.  :-)

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Disregard: 

I was able to download the GMO book.  It's free, but they want you to fill out the form on the right side of the page.
