Just thought I would do a public service by cautioning my fellow paleo hacks of the GMO laced Pigs at Wellness Meats (which they disclose on this link) http://blog.grasslandbeef.com/bid/87109/US-Wellness-Pork-II You've been warned.

I like to think if it ain't broke don't fix it. There are a lot of negatives attributed to GMO's aside from the health implications I believe you may be aware of and supporting GMO's basically means supporting that whole crooked system. I don't agree with it but I appreciate your feedback, it's always interesting to hear what others think. Good luck.

Being on a paleo website means you have to have bias despite their being no evidence whatsoever to say GMO is bad?

Do you know how ridiculous you sound? You are not sensitive to GMO. You are a hypochondriac with far too much time or money on your hands. Grow up and learn that unless you can prove something there will not be acceptance of your premise. There is zero proof that GMO food is at all harmful. No number of pathetic biased studies that are so laughable they seem to be done by the onion will convince rational scientifically informed people.

Bad science, ahoy! You do realise that they're poisoning mice with doses you'd never achieve eating food? And even then, it's a minor inflammatory response.

I was just observing your ignorance, not judging you, take it as constructive criticism. Just because it's petty to you doesn't mean it's petty to someone with an immediate gut sensitivty to GMO's. GMO's and Wellness Meats is an oxymoron. It's about awareness ultimately anyways, again I must say another ignorant comment, your on a roll man!

Calling people names isn't going to win you many arguments. The issue is minor in this case because the company is trying to eliminate a short term situation that is feeding a percentage of GMO grains to pigs. They've disclosed and are attempting to rectify the situation. Nobody is forced to buy or eat the food. You can stomp your feet and scream at the world, but it is still petty.

Sure, it sounds petty to any ignorant person.

"Anti GMO propaganda is completely devoid of science."

Well it costs a lot of money to do studies, particularly long ones and who's interested in spending loads of money to debunk fabricated and flawed studies that promote GMO's?

Here's a study published last year that links GMO to Leukemia posted in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases.

You must have forgotten your on a pro paleo website.

GMOs are not necessary to feed the world. Many of the agricultural practices encouraged by GMO manufacturers, such as monoculture and indiscriminate pesticide use, will ultimately be harmful to the food supply and the larger environment. I agree that people seem to be scared of GMOs for all the wrong reasons, but I think you're going a little too far in the other direction.

Anti GMO propaganda is completely devoid of science. Every rational and prominent scientist completely debunk the anti GMO crap. Even total lefty socialist science writers who loathe monsanto and their horrible business of leading poverty stricken people to death say that the science behind anti GMO movement is non existent.

Only people who believe GMO to be bad are people with mental health issues who think chemtrails exist. People who think unnatural is bad, as if that is anything other than a trite subjective word based on a flimsy analysis of organisms and our conscious relation to them as humans.

GMO foods could end starvation of millions of black and yellow people, but of course to some middle class white people who are obsessed with wrapping their white children up ion bubble wrap, pesticides and gmo is horrible, because…. well because. hashtag organic/freerangewhitechildren

I have to respect them for the honesty and it sounds like a petty issue. I buy local and have to trust that they feed the animals as best as they can. If you worry about every little thing you would never eat, drink or breathe.

"What do they eat? Pigs are foragers, and most of our pigs are outdoors every day (weather permitting) to forage for bugs, sticks, roots, etc. Since pigs have a single stomach, unlike the four chambered stomach of cattle, we cannot raise a healthy animal on grass alone, so their diets are supplemented with corn and soy. This is usually a non-gmo feed ration, however, due to the historic dought of 2012, it has been very difficult (and in some rural areas, almost impossible) for our producers to source and feed a 100% non-gmo ration. We are getting closer to 100% non-gmo, and this post and our website will be updated just as soon as we can claim 100% non-gmo feed once again. Since production is combined, we cannot currently split the gmo and non-gmo fed animals. We hope to have 100% non-gmo fed pork by the end of 2014."

Bigger news would be if it made any difference in the quality of product.
