Definition: Genetic Modification is a technique that changes the genetic makeup of cells, including alteration of genetic materials and other biologically important chemicals, and allows genes to move across species. It produces new combinations of genes and traits that do not occur in nature. Plants that have been altered in this way are called GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, or GE, genetically engineered. GMO plants are modified to include genes allowing them to survive the application of chemical herbicides, or cause the plants to produce pesticides.
“An increasing number of studies are showing problems with GMOs and their associated pesticides, such as Roundup. There is evidence that Roundup, even at the low levels permitted in food and drinking water, could lead to serious effects on health over time, such as liver and kidney toxicity. Based on this evidence, it appears that the levels of exposure currently held as safe by regulators around the world are questionable.” -Michael Antoniou

*Did you catch that? “GMOs and their associated pesticides, such as Roundup.” . That’s right! You are eating pesticides so the industry doesn’t have to spend as much on ‘Organic Farming’. You wouldn’t be okay with adding a drop of pesticides in your water each day, why ARE you okay eating it with every meal?
