The USDA has just released the latest figures on planting of genetically modified soybeans, corn, and cotton in the United States. GM varieties comprise 60-70% of all corn and cotton, and 90% of soybeans. On this basis, if a food containing corn or soybeans is not labeled Certified Organic or GM-free, you should assume it is GM.

Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
