What’s wrong with GMOs?

Do you ever wonder if the food you’re eating is grown naturally or cooked up in a laboratory? Many natural-seeming foods can be genetically modified in a lab. GMOs (or genetically modified organisms) are organisms that have been created through gene-splicing techniques, creating unnatural combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that do not occur in nature or by traditional crossbreeding methods. In 2011, it is estimated by the USDA that 94% of soy, 90% of cotton, and 88% of corn grown in the U.S. are GMO.

Advocating for non-GMO foods

The Non-GMO Project began as an initiative by the North American organic and natural product industry to create a standardized definition of non-GMO, and for the first time, give the public an opportunity to make an informed choice when it comes to GMOs. The Non-GMO Project is an organization dedicated to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. Non-GMO Project Verification, which PROBAR passed, comes only after rigorous independent auditing of food products by the Non-GMO Project.
