Cheerios Drops Genetically Modified Ingredients

     As I have mentioned before, Proposition 37 was only the first battle in the war for food security.  Even after having been outspent by some $45,000,000 (yes, that's 45 million dollars...and they argued that labeling would be too expensive!) in California alone, the national grass roots movement for non-GMO food is still alive, well, and actually growing!  General Mills announced this week that their original Cheerios cereal is now completely free of GMOs.  The announcement must be a painful one for the corporate world to make; see it here: Cheerios Drops Genetically Modified Ingredients.
     "Under pressure from consumers and activist groups, General Mills says it will stop using genetically modified ingredients to make its original Cheerios cereal."
