I am Very new to Paleo and actually started Paleo after hearing about Wheat Belly and how bad GMO wheat is. My question is about organic/ NON GMO wheat, is that wheat still bad for you and if so how and why?

If you are absolutely going to eat wheat (which I'd advise against), fermented bread products (like sourdough) are the best. The bacteria break down a significant amount of the proteins, lectins, etc.

Is it possible for you to get organic apples? They are part of the dirty dozen list. Otherwise, I believe GMO fruits and/or veggies will have a number that begins with 8 instead of 4 for regularly produced and 9 for organics.

Myth 0 · April 21, 2013 at 9:16 PM

Since most corn is GMO, probably. Since they don't specifically advertise as non-GMO, probably. Since it is Kirkland brand, probably. Corn is a grain anyways so isn't technically Paleo. Short Answer: Probably.
