The funniest thing about this whole conversation, including the nice and sweetly worded response about how much Himalayan cares about thier customers health, is that GMO"s have never been implicated or proven to harm human health to any degree (the same may not be said about pesticides or herbicides used in conjunction with GMO's). However 5 tablespoons of salt can kill you almost instantly, and 1 in 10 deaths in the US are blamed on a diet that contains too much salt leading to hypertension. Perhaps you have your objectives crossed a bit.

http://www.biofortified.org/genera/studies-for-genera/independent-funding/ 126 studies that are INDEPENDENTLY funded, that show the safety of GMO crops. I guess it's time to dismiss these as well.

Thanks Shea for letting me contribute my first Blog Post! I figured there would be much hate, this is a polarizing topic, and lastly, I'm a Scientist not an Author. I spend my days backing up statements with concrete facts, it's the only way to survive in my profession. I could spend my days believing in other's opinions without conducting my own research, or just believing the sky is falling, but I would want to prove it myself. P.S. Thanks Robert for your support. Lastly, for those concerned about a few proteins being introduced into their food, you should know that even in Non-GMO or organic food, you eat a variety of microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses everyday. That's why we evolved a Stomach and immune system. Personally I am more worried about small amounts of Pharmaceuticals and toxic metals in my tap water, plastic based compounds in my food and on my skin, vehicles and emissions I breath, and lastly just about every wifi, cellphone transmission and electronic energy put forth by today's society. Unfortunately I won't be hiding under a rock. I know a tremendous amount of information about GMO's and consider them no more harmful than table salt. I do however consider high fructose corn syrup extremely harmful, and nobody seems to have a problem with that!
