Many people engage in the discussion of whether or not buying “Organic” is worth while. I always share with them, the greater question is whether or not something is “Genetically Modified” or not. This is the practice of altering the DNA of seeds to create super crops. Truth is, no one really has any idea what foods made with these products or animals fed GMO’s are going to do in our bodies.
This interview with Jeffery Smith a worldwide expert on Genetic Modification is on the REAL Food Summit this week.
Four Ways to Avoid GM Foods by Jeffery Smith
1) Buy Organic
2) Buy foods that say “Non-GMO Project Verified”
3) Buy Foods on the Non-GMO Shopping Guide
4) Download Non-GMO Project App for your iphone
4) Avoid Products made with ingredients/crops listed on the “At Risk Crops”
(includes soybeans, canola, cottonseed, corn, and sugar from sugar beets)
