KASHI? No thanks.

The excerpt below is from Organic Bytes, the Organic Consumers Association newsletter

The Green Grocer, an independent natural food store in Rhode Island, yanked so-called "natural" Kashi products off the shelves and posted this note in their place: "Where's my Kashi?! You might be wondering where your favorite Kashi cereals have gone. It has recently come to our attention that 100% of the soy used in Kashi products is Genetically Modified, and that when the USDA tested the grains used there were found to be pesticides that are known carcinogens and hormone disruptors." It's true, most Kashi and Kellogg's products are contaminated with GMOs. If you write Kellogg's to complain, they will try to tell you how great GMOs are. We know better! Tell Kellogg's you're boycotting Kashi until they stop using Monsanto's GMOs. And please stop buying so-called "natural" processed foods. Most of them are tainted with GMOs and pesticides, just like Kashi's non-organic brands. Fill your shopping basket with organic products instead .
Take action!

Hmm, by definition "natural" means -

1.existing in or formed by nature ( opposed to artificial).
2. based on the state of things in nature; constituted by nature: Growth is a natural process.
3. of or pertaining to nature or the universe: natural beauty.
4. of, pertaining to, or occupied with the study of natural science: conducting natural experiments.
5. in a state of nature; uncultivated, as land.

Guess they got a bit off track with definition #4...no kashi for me, nope not even one little so called natural genetically modified pesticide ridden flake.

Kashi has sent Mr. H over da edge!

Yes, so true, natural means nothing at all these days.

We make our granola, and when we don't we use Cascadian Farm which is certified organic yada yada yada.

No soy. No GMOs. No garbage.
