What is GMO?
GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
GMO foods are harmful for both human and for our environment. Unfortunately there are a lot GMO foods which we regularly buy from our local store and they don’t say that they are GMO foods. The best way to avoid GMO foods is to buy organic products. Also, there is a list of the products that we must avoid if we cannot buy the organic one. Here is the list of the 20 top GMO foods:
- Sugar Beets
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Corn Starch
- Ice Cream
- Non-organic and Synthetic Vitamin
- Canola Oil
- Margarine and Shortening
- Hawaiian Papaya
People should avoid GMO foods whenever is possible. It might looks expensive to buy organic products, but in the future by using GMO foods we are risking our life and our loved ones.
