Do you worry about GMO foods?

Do you folks worry about GMO foods? I mean, it seems every big food company has some GMO in their process now. It's almost impossible to not buy something that is made with GMO ingredients. Buying organic everything is really expensive!

It's really a shame that organic foods are more expensive. During the spring and summer months, I try to supplement what I can with local produce. I'm lucky to have many family members with green thumbs as well!

I don't worry about GMO foods, but that's because I'm too busy worrying about the Points values!! If I didn't have to worry about how many Points I'm taking in, I'd probably pay more attention to the other stuff (GMO, MSG, etc.).

I do have concerns. But organic food is so expensive I do hate the way that they tamper with our foods and our health just to make more and more profit

It does worry me, but tbh I think even organic food isn't truly organic now. I read something recently about how rivers, birds carrying seeds and things cause cross contamination with organic crops anyway. In an ideal world with no restraits on time/money/resources, I'd grow all my own food so I knew where it was coming from!

It worries me a little, but not enough to actually avoid those foods. I have a hard enough time with dietary restrictions as it is and don't want to add the burden of GMO avoidance on top of that.
