We can all breathe a sigh of relief about that whole GMO thing. Wegmans, vendor of aisle after aisle of artificial food-like substances, has debunked the terrifying myth we were so worried about. Silly us – this warm, comforting letter from Senior Vice President Mary Ellen Burris puts it all into perspective.
Here’s what assures us about the safety of GMO foods and ingredients currently available (80% of America’s cropland is planted with GMO seed.) All GMO seed companies have consulted with the Food and Drug Administration on each potential product. FDA says that seed companies have satisfactorily completed every additional test that has been asked for, even though this consultation is not required by law. The testing protocols FDA uses are well established by a global collection of scientists from 168 nations. (source)

(Just to recap, that is the same FDA that says neurotoxins like aspartame and MSG are okay, toxic waste fluoride is actually good for you, uses the corporate headquarters of Biotech and Big Pharma as an employment staffing pool, and sells out to the highest bidder on a regular basis. We Nutritional Anarchists are not big fans of the FDA – learn more HERE.)
Anyway, poor Mary Ellen got hazed so badly in the comments section she posted a defense of her original letter (emphasis mine):
I have been reading all the comments. Clearly, and no surprise, GMOs are a polarizing topic.

Now, in the interest of transparency, we have shared our conclusions with you. Here are some things I’d like to say and points I want to clarify:
