Arran Stephens, Founder of Nature’s Path Foundation, shared important information on GMOs for consumers. This article, highlighting an upcoming film on GMOs, is excerpted from his publication. Great links are provided at the end:
You have the right to know what’s in your food. Unfortunately, we don’t have this right when it comes to buying food containing GMOs.
What’s a GMO? They’re genetically modified organisms, plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology. It merges DNA from different species. creating combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that can’t occur in nature.
Why the concern? The long term health and environmental effects haven’t been properly tested. That’s why over 64 countries have placed significant restrictions, labeling laws, or outright bans on GMP products. Right now, the USA is not among them.
