Understanding Non-GMO

“Non-GMO” is a term that’s become quite popular, yet few people have taken the time to understand what that means. Non-GMO means the food you’re consuming has not undergone genetic modification. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are created in labs utilizing techniques that involve engineering and modification. These organisms can potentially affect your health as well as the environment, which, in turn, has spurred more people to demand to seek foods that are “non-GMO”. Pesticides, organ damage, and even issues with fertility are a couple of examples of the negative effects of GMO foods.

When scientists genetically modify plants that provide food, they are removing genes from the DNA of the organism, such as a bacterium, virus, animal, or plants. This DNA is then “recombined” into another plant, fundamentally modifying its DNA. The intended goal is that with these new genes, the traits associated with the genes will be carried out. Regrettably, the implanting of these genes is entirely random and there has yet to be a way to determine what effect it may have on other genes. This means there is always the lingering possibility of food allergens and toxins. The last thing you want is to consume something that’s been tampered with in a lab.
