Over the last 5 or 6 years, I’ve been hearing the question, “why doesn’t Whole Foods come to Boise?” Before I knew much about food and nutrtion, I too thought this would be a great thing, to have such a pillar of whole foods and health in our city.
This was before I realized what Whole Foods really is: a wolf in sheep’s clothing. After educating myself, I have learned all about Whole Foods and their mission to sell “healthy food” to the consumer market.
Over the years, I have shopped at Whole Foods in other cities when I traveled and had no other choices. I also do everything I can to bring my own food with me – especially if I’m driving. I want to avoid having to pay the expensive prices Whole Foods charges for their products, especially because I know that I’m really not getting what is claimed on the label for my money. 8 reasons I won’t shop at Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho: 1. Whole Foods claims to be anti-GMO. They have engaged in large anti-GMO campaigns throughout their history. But the fact remains, Whole Foods carries a great deal of GMO products in their stores.
GMOs are becoming more and more pervasive in our food supply. Most soy, corn, canola, and cotton come from GMO sources. There are currently no labeling laws in the U.S. If something isn’t labeled “non-GMO” or “GMO-free” it’s probably GMO.
