GMOs Are Almost Everywhere

GMOs are Almost Everywhere!

Many of us have come to the conclusion that our regulatory agencies are lacking and we need to look out for ourselves. It’s very difficult to avoid GMOs today. According to the Center for Food Safety the genetic engineering of plants and animals is looming as one of the greatest and most intractable environmental challenges of the 21st Century.

 According to Center for Food Safety currently below list is genetically engineered (GE):

92% of U.S. corn

94% of soybeans

94% of cotton (cottonseed oil is often used in food products)

75% of processed foods on supermarket shelves – from soda to soup, crackers to condiments – contain genetically engineered ingredients….

What is GMO?

By removing the genetic material from one organism and inserting it into the permanent genetic code of another, the biotech industry has created an astounding number of organisms that are not produced by nature and have never been seen on the plate. These include potatoes with bacteria genes, “super” pigs with human growth genes, fish with cattle growth genes, tomatoes with flounder genes, corn with bacteria genes, and thousands of other altered and engineered plants, animals and insects. At an alarming rate, these creations are now being patented and released into our environment and our food supply.
