What are genetically modified foods and are they healthy? Genetically modified organisms (GMO) have DNA from one species injected into another through bio technology genetic engineering.
Long term health effects of GMO foods have not been determined as they have not been studied. The USDA does not require foods, ie. produce that has been grown from genetically modified seeds, to be labeled while 30 countries including the European Union (EU), Australia, and Japan, ban or significantly restrict genetically modified foods. Over 90% of commercially grown soy, corn, and canola oil in the U.S. has been genetically modified.
Organically grown fruits and vegetables are the best choice for optimal well being and prevention of chronic illnesses. Therefore you do have a choice and we recommend that be certified organic produce. Freedom of choice regarding healthy food is a basic human right. Let’s get GMO foods labeled so people have that freedom.
