Is non-GMO corn a myth? Natural News exclusive story behind “King” corn

According to Natural News, General Mills has now publicly announced that original Cheerios cereal is non-GMO. This announcement, in which General Mills also falsely claims that genetically modified ingredients are “safe” — as if this had been proven or something — is available here.
But Cheerios cereal is made from oats, and there’s no such thing as commercially produced genetically modified oats. So proclaiming that original Cheerios is non-GMO is not especially meaningful. It’s like an aloe vera juice company claiming that its aloe vera juice is non-GMO. To their credit, General Mills explains that they did change their sources for a very tiny ingredient in the cereal: corn starch.
“…we were able to change how we source and handle ingredients to ensure that the corn starch for original Cheerios comes only from non-GMO corn,” explains General Mills.

According to John Roulac, founder of Nutiva:
This is a huge victory for the non-GMO movement. I want to thank all the “GMO Insiders” for using social media to convince America’s largest packed food brand to go non-GMO with a major product. History is being made today and more food brands will rush towards non-GMO foods.
I hope he’s right. But as much as I really love John Roulac and all the amazing things he stands for (he really is a pioneer in superfoods), I see this differently. For starters, there doesn’t seem to be anything in the announcement about General Mills adding any sort of “non-GMO” label to Cheerios boxes. If it’s not labeled non-GMO, then it’s not really a win for consumer education and product transparency. It seems as if General Mills wants Cheerios to be secretly non-GMO while avoiding bringing any real attention to the issue.
