Just say NO to GMOs!

According to www.ResponsibleTechnology.org, a GMO is a (genetically modified organism). It is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.  So basically...this is something that's genetically modified with genetic engineering! Sounds frightening to be eating something that we don't even know what it's been changed to...

While GMOs are banned everywhere else in the world, GMOs are approved in the U.S. in most processed foods and can be found in foods like:

  • Corn.

  • Soybeans.

  • Cotton.

  • Canola.

  • Sugar beets.

  • Alfalfa.

  • Papaya.

  • Yellow “crook neck” squash

The FDA doesn't even allow for it to be listed on food labels--There are so many "invisible ingredients" that you wouldn't even know how to list it, much less know what you're eating.  Although GMOs are trying to make its way in the nutrition-friendly family, it's benefits only have herbicide tolerance, produce its own pesticide, and has economic benefits. 

What makes it even worse, genetically modified foods have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions, sick, sterile, and dead livestock, and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals. The effects on humans of consuming these new combinations of proteins produced in GMOs are unknown and have not been studied...So why would you eat this???
