Today’s Article from Dr. Mercola has scary info – but we can choose to keep our families healthier and influence food manufacturers by voting with our dollars. The following article is really worth your time! http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/09/24/transgenic-wars-gmo.aspx

Upon investigation of the study, I found the researchers failed to report some key information:
The body of the research article made organics look really good! More antioxidants, more vitamins and minerals and less toxins! Just for fun, let me read the conclusion of this review of 343 studies:
“In conclusion, organic crops, on average, have higher concentrations of antioxidants, lower concentrations of Cadmium and a lower incidence of pesticide residues than the non-organic comparators across regions and production seasons.1”
I am not trying to implicate the news here just because the headlines read the opposite of the conclusion, let’s just consider the source before we believe everything we hear!
