We’re told that genetically modified foods are healthy for us, good for the environment, and help us feed the world. That sounds promising. But are these claims true? With so much conflicting information about genetically modified organisms (GMOs), it’s hard to separate fact from fiction.
These days we’re demanding information and transparency about what’s in our food and where it’s coming from. Even though the GMO industry says they’re perfectly safe, skepticism remains. With such a huge amount of our food supply coming from GMOs, we deserve to know what we’re putting in our bodies.
But many of us don’t really understand exactly what GMOs are or the health risks that come with genetically modified food. How did they go from the novel Flavr Savr tomato in 1994 to lining every shelf in our grocery stores today?
Here you’ll discover what GMOs really are, the health risks that come from them, and how you and your family can avoid genetically modified food.
