Why is corn on the clean list when most of it is GMO?

The clean list was developed to educate readers about foods that are low in pesticide residues. It does not have anything to do with GMOs. If you want to avoid GMOs, you will need to purchase certified organic corn, which is required to be GMO free.

As background, there is no large-scale human research on genetically modified foods and their health impact, but we share the concern of many researchers about the introduction of novel proteins into food and their potential for increasing risk of adverse reactions, including food allergies.

One way to avoid potential genetically modified food risks, of course, is to purchase certified organic food, since genetic modifications are not allowed in certified organic foods.
