What Are The Most Common GMO Foods?
What Are The Most Common GMO Foods found and hidden on2 our local supermarket shelves and in our processed food? What does GMO stand for and why is this something we should be very cautious of, even avoid?
What are GMO Foods?
GMO’s are Genetically Modified Organisms are basically organisms genetically engineered by science in a way that does not occur in nature. GMO Foods are basically foods manipulated from an unnatural state, many would say by scientists trying to play god.
“It is clear that genetic modification is inherently hazardous, as it invariably result in unpredictable and uncontrollable changes in the genome and the epigenome (pattern of gene expression) that impact on safety.” (3) states Science in Society
Many scientists and medical professionals believe there should be far more research on transparency on GMO Foods especially when we look at the organisations pushing GMO Foods and what they don’t want us to know. As there is quite a lot of research that suggests that many common GMO Foods can cause serious harm to our health and wellbeing.
One of the alarming aspects of GMO Foods is that manufacturers in some countries are not required by law to declare if their food is genetically modified.
Common GMO Foods
Common Genetically Modified Foods include
Canola ( USA)
Squash ( USA)
Sugar Beets (A big source of refined sugar)
Sweet Pepper ( mostly China)
GMO Foods Also Include
Enzymes and Microbes which are used in food processing that are not included on food labels
Meat, Milk, and / where the animals are fed genetically modified crops.
Vegetable Fats and Margarine that are derived from genetically modified foods.
The Main Difference Between Common GMO Foods And Organic Foods
The main difference between genetically modified foods and organic foods is one is the produce from a lab while the other is a produce of nature. I believe part of what keeps us healthy in our food is the plant’s natural energy force and natural synergy. Genetically modified foods and crops are unnatural, genetically altered by scientists than something that is natural.
There are many ethical and health concerns around common GMO Foods that the top food manufacturers and corporate farmland owners try to deny. Especially when many of the top food manufacturers around the world use GMO foods to increase phenomenal profits than increase the genuine quality of our health.
Organic foods are free from chemical artificial fertilisers and pesticides while genetic foods are not. One of the reasons many people are growing their own organic gardens and organic remedies at home.
