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 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 toeveryone.Tips to Avoid GMOs?Tip #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 enrolled in theNon-GMO Project, a non-prot organizationcommitted to providing consumers with clearlylabeled and independently veried non-GMOchoices inculding testing of at-risk ingredients.Visit NonGMOProject.org for more informationon 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.
