Just thinking about all of the horrible foods we consume, and sometimes without even knowing something is horrible, terrifies me. The article points out:<br><br><br><br>
"The people served by the organic industry are very sensitive to GMO." And, the industry hopes, willing to pay to avoid it.<br><br><br><br>
I just hope that, that doesn't mean that organic will now be even more expensive than it already is. Sure, I don't mind paying extra for certain things, but if a box of organic crackers is going to cost me $4 or something ridiculous like that (just for example) to make sure the milk used in making the crackers is non-GMO...I don't know if I would be able to avoid GMO food.<br><br><br><br>
I'm a college student just trying to eat right, however I don't really want to pay out the a** to do so.

Even with the non-GMO certification I don't understand how you'll be able to stop all cross-contamination...

You're not stopping the cross-contamination here. What you're doing is testing batches of grain/produce/etc for GMO-contamination much the same way batches of beef are tested for Mad Cow. Not a bad idea, really.
