Genetically Modified

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are plants or animals that have been genetically altered to increase resistance to herbicides. These GMO plants and/or animals can therefore thrive in an area where they are not likely to be planted and grown.  Although GMO’s are considered to be “safe”, biotech companies have been successful in keeping the research private. The Non-GMO project was created to at least give Americans a full list of the foods that are labeled GMO.  Let me put it this way: the GMO foods we consume are being changed with DNA from bacteria or viruses. No thank you! It’s just another channel to ingest toxins into our body that have a variety of short and long term negative side effects. Knowing where your food comes from is one of the most IMPORTANT steps in improving your nutrition. (Pg. 48 Hungry for Change)
