October is Non-GMO Month!
What are GMOs?
GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) are organisms that are genetically engineered in a lab. These organisms are are not natural, have crossed species line and is not apart of the evolutionary process. In simplified terms, they do not exist anywhere in nature. GMOs occur when scientists take the gene from one species and force it into the DNA of another species, creating a new Franken-organism. An example would be cow genes inserted into a pig’s DNA in an effort to create a “cow-hide” for pigs.
Where are the GMOs?
Unbeknownst to most of us, they are found are found in our food, and many products that we use and purchase. Labeling for GMOs is being fought for across the country to provide a CHOICE to those who do not want to be apart of this unregulated science experiment. Testimonies by doctors, scientists, dieticians and parents give serious consideration to real health dangers of consuming genetically engineered organisms. There are only nine crops that are generally modified, but its derivatives are found in over 70% of foods and products in the marketplace.
