Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

Did you know since 1996 Americans have been eating genetically modified ingredients in most Processed foods?

Did you know GM plants, such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, and canola, have had foreign genes forced into their DNA.  The inserted genes come from species such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply.

Did you know The American Academy of Environmental Medicine states, "Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food", including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.  They ask physicians to advise patients to avoid GM food.

There are 8 GM food crops.  The five major varieties: soy, corn, canola, cotton, and Sugar beets.  Hawiian papaya, zucchini, and yellow crookneck squash are also engineered to resist plant viruses and are GM.
