GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) Explained

What is GMO?

Generally speaking, the term “GMO” (Genetically Modified Organism) refers to food crops that have been reformed or altered (genetically) by utilizing a variety of scientific procedures. In other words, scientists putting food genes through processes by means of providing them with ‘new’ and/or ‘boosted’ features.

The GMO process is all about making money – creating a product that can appeal to the masses, preserve well, grow efficiently, and sell.

GMO Disadvantages

  • Possibility of humans developing new allergic reactions to the foods they eat.
  • Strong likelihood of widespread infestation of diseases across species barriers.
  • GM foods can disturb the natural flow of our environments.
  • Artificial characteristics can be passed on to subsequent generations.
  • Unpredictable health effects: we do not yet know the long-term effects of these mutated foods. It could be way worse than what we already recognize.
  • Insufficient government regulation.
  • Some crops are now possibly being engineered to produce their own pesticides.
  • Global threat to humanity’s food supply!

Unfortunately, GMO’s are NOT labeled on the foods we eat, but people are trying to change that.  Stay away from commercial-grade foods, and stick to the real (and USDA certified) organic selections. Certified organic foods are typically not allowed to be altered (genetically speaking).
