Non-GMO is the way to go…

 

The term “GMO” is thrown around quite often in health circles, but what exactly does it mean?

GMOs are genetically modified organisms. They are formed when the DNA from one species is injected into another creating something that does not occur in nature, or through traditional cross-breeding methods.

Why would people genetically alter nature?

Non-GMO is the way to go…

One example… corn seeds can be genetically modified in the lab to produce a chemical that kills certain insects.

Non-GMO is the way to go…

Now why would you subject your body to something like that?

More than 85% of the corn, Sugar beets, Canola, and soybeans grown in the U.S. are genetically modified.  In addition, these crops have been identified to be  at “high-risk” of being genetically modified according to the USDA:

  • alfalfa
  • Cotton
  • Hawaiian Papaya
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow squash

GMOs don’t limit their damage to the produce department!

Milk, meat, and eggs run a high risk of GMO contamination due to genetically modified feed!

Non-GMO is the way to go…

Next time you are shopping be on the lookout for Non-GMO verified products!
