Halloween is right around the corner, and you can avoid stomach-churning tricks in your treats by opting for Organic and non-GMO candy.
By choosing Organic and non-GMO candy, you can prevent exposure to genetically engineered crops and their associated pesticides, for which children are particularly at risk.
The World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) cancer authorities – the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – recently determined that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic to humans” (Group 2A). Glyphosate is the most heavily used pesticide in the world thanks to widespread planting of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready crops, which are genetically engineered to survive spraying with it.
That's why CFS created this simple guide to help you avoid GMO tricks in your Halloween treats!
