Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are the result of laboratory processes which artificially insert foreign genes into the DNA of food crops or animals. Those genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. GMOs are not safe, but have been in the food supply since 1996. Most Americans say they would not eat GMOs if labeled, but the U.S. does not require labeling.

Introduction & Overview
What is a GMO?
Genetically modied organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes fromone species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, or humans, into the DNAof a food crop or animal in order to introduce a new trait.
Why Should I Avoid GMOs?
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine reported, “Severalanimal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,”including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulinregulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.They urge physicians to prescribe healthier non-GMO foods to everyone.
Tips to Avoid GMOsTip #1: Buy Organic
Certied organic products cannot intentionally include any GMO ingre-dients. Buy products labeled “100% organic,” “organic,” or “made withorganic ingredients.” You can be doubly sure if the product also has aNon-GMO Project Veried Seal.
Tip #2: Look for Non-GMO Project Seals
This guide features brands with productsveried by the Non-GMO Project, a non-protorganization committed to providing consumerswith clearly labeled and independently veriednon-GMO choices, including testing of at-riskingredients. The Non-GMO Project veries per individual product, not for an entire brand. Some of the brands listed inthis guide offer both GMO and Non-GMO items. Visit NonGMOProject.orgfor more information on the third-party product verication program.
Tip #3: Avoid At-Risk IngredientsIf it’s not labeled organic or veried non-GMO,
avoid products madewith ingredients that might be derived from GMOs. The eight GM foodcrops are Corn, Soybeans, Canola, Cottonseed, Sugar Beets, HawaiianPapaya (most) and a small amount of Zucchini and Yellow Squash. GMalfalfa is also fed to livestock.
