JEFFREY SMITH IN ARIZONA : Health Hazards of GMO Foods
Another one bites the dust. Rather than clean up their own GMO and glyphosate laden junk foods, ailing Kellogg's buys fast growing RXBAR, maker of simple ingredient fruit, nut and egg white bars to prop up profits. RXBAR joins Organic Pure Bar and Organic Stretch Island fruit leather - also recent Kellogg's acquisitions.
