Genetic engineering is a radical new technology that forces genetic information across the protective species barrier in an unnatural way.
Why be concerned? One of many good reasons is that these laboratory-created mutations are unlabeled, virtually untested and on grocery shelves everywhere.
Here are five simple and easy ways to avoid GE (genetically engineered) frankenfoods.
1. Buy locally produced food.
For now only large agri-business farms use GMO seeds. Besides its always better to support local farmers.
2. Buy oranically grown food.
No organically grown foods contain GMOs, for now anyway.
3. Avoid the top four GMO crops: corn, soy, canola, and cottonseed.
Most blended oils in America contain either canola oil, cottonseed oil or both. So do your self a favor and next time you are at the grocery store buy only cold pressed olive oil.
4. Avoid artificail additives and sweeteners.
Artifial sweetners should be avoided at all costs especially aspartame. Aspartame causes cancer and promotes weight gain and is also genetically modified. The majority of vitamin c (asorbic acid) and most B vitamins have been created with the use of genetic modification.
5. Look for the Non-GMO label.
If there is no label on the pakage it is safe to assume some of the igredients are genetically modified. That goes for meat to. All factory farmed animals are fed GMO grains.
