GMO's.  Genetically Modified Organisms.  This is a topic all people who eat food (in other words:  everyone) should learn about.  When grocery shopping, many of us assume we know what's in our food, even if we haven't been reading labels carefully. It may be surprising to know that since the late 1990's food companies have been including GMO's in our foods, and we had no idea. Robyn O'Brien's TED talk sheds light on the topic, sharing her own personal journey that began with trying to understand her child's allergic reaction after having a simple breakfast of a waffle, a tube of yogurt, and scrambled eggs.  

Look for this label to be sure a product is free from GMO's.
