Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have been a long-running debate worldwide. About 60 countries have banned such products, while the others seem to embrace them, including the US. Products include plant foods like corn, soy, papaya, squash, as well as some dairy. They’re also in as much as 80 percent of processed foods.
In addition to that, the newly-invented GMO salmon called “Frankenfish” was approved by the USDA just a month ago, which is but another issue of whether or not the administration can really be trusted.
A recent report has shown another evidence that some GMO crops, which are able to produce pesticides in their own, pose serious health and environmental risks. Read more in this report by David Gutierrez on Natural News:
New multi-toxin GMOs that produce their own poison carry ‘serious health and environmental risks’ scientific review finds
(NaturalNews) New strains of GM crops that produce pesticides in their own tissues are being approved without rigorous safety testing, even though they may carry “serious health and environmental risks,” according to a research review conducted by scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, and published in the journal Frontiers in Environmental Science on November 9.

Among the health risks include toxicity, allergic reactions, antibiotic resistance, immuno-suppression, cancer and loss of nutrition. Scary stuff, huh?
So what now? Well, the tricky part is that there’s no way you can tell if the food you’re eating contains GMO.
The safest you can do is to buy products that are certified organic, because they were not exposed to harmful chemicals. Make sure that they have the “100% organic” or “Non-GMO product” verified seal. Take note, too, that “natural” labels are not automatically “organic.” Don’t confuse the two as some natural products are not as healthy as you think.
