    This is soooo good. What a great video. I have known this for a long time but its great to have a way to share it with friends and family that don't quite get it.

    Sorry for my previous post. It was meant in reference to one of the videos that came up for viewing AFTER the "Natural vs. Organic" video. I appreciate very much the "Natural vs. Organic.

    This guy is incredibly stupid! He keeps trying to twist what the teen is saying, pushing that she is against any scientific investigations into improving food. What an idiot! She is MERELY and ONLY saying that people have the RIGHT TO KNOW. After that, it is up to each individual to do their own due diligence and decide which foods they will accept and which they will eschew. And, of course, if there are NO non-GMO items in the stores, they can choose to grow their own or partner with others who are also providing their own food. That guy really showcased his bias and "shill-based" views. He is definitely a puppet for Monsanto and others whose stated purposes are exactly the opposite of what they purport to be doing.

      Please see second post after this one. I was referring to the video of the teen who advocates for GMO labeling of all foods and has started a group called Kids Right To Know.

    Thanks a ton for this informative video. I often get fooled by the advertising, but will now start to pay more attention to my food purchases.

  • Lauren Modery

    Thank you! I wonder about this every time I eat something "natural," especially when it's meat. Now I can make an informed choice!

  • Tom Maybrier

    I really think we need stricter rules about advertising language. This is such a questionable practice.

  • Baxter Farabaugh

    I find it really interesting that for food labels in the US the word "natural" has no regulated definition with the FDA. However, the most prominent definitions available specify that something "natural" is not made or caused by humankind. Artificially created, processed, and genetically modified foods seem so far out line with this definition. I'm glad to be better informed and will look for the USDA Organic label in the future!

    @Mattcs... it is good to be an informed consumer, especially when it comes to what you're putting into your body. I believe that the use of natural amounts to an unfair trade issue that poses serious threats to consumers by making it economically unfeasible for food producers to supply us wholesome, organic food. If it did not take more money and time to be organic, there would be no need for "natural." So, let's take down the bigger threat and then make sure that "organic" has the appropriate scrutiny. Right?

  • Mattcs26

    I'm paranoid 'Organic' is the new 'Natural'. It's like the sellers are trying to bamboozle use with misleading words. Again.

    • Pat Grady

      except it is illegal to use the word organic on your product labeling and marketing if it doesn't meet the USDA standards, so you should probably not be so paranoid about it.

      That's the whole idea! Trying to show the difference between the two. It's so important that organic is not seen as "natural," since those products tend to have hormones, etc.
