We’re all learning that food labeled as “natural” are more often than not about as natural as a synthetic plastic factory. Because “natural” is not really regulated, food labeled as such can be chock full of GMOs and pesticide-covered ingredients.

Yet the use of natural and all its variations as proliferated on food labels of all kinds, and we are still buying them. While issues of cost and access are definitely always at play and are, of course,valid reasons to not opt non-GMO and/or organic options, do your best to avoid these so-called natural food types that are simply making a mockery of the term in all its marketing glory.
