Genetically modified organisms, known as GMOs, are created by inserting a gene from one species into another to create a new version of a food species that would not be found in nature. GMOs can have negative effects on your health and the environment. It is important to be aware of the effects of GMOs, as well as what foods are genetically modified. Problem is, GMOs do not necessarily have to be labelled as such, and it can be impossible to know what you’re eating.
Educate yourself by visiting Organic Authority to learn more about the bad effects of GMOs.
Wish you knew how to spot GMOs? We do to, and so does California Right to Know. Their campaign has successfully earned a spot for this issue on the November ballot, and if successfully passed, grocery retailers will be required to label food that is produced with genetic engineering. Learn more about the campaign here, and defend your right to know.
