A few years back I published a post titled What Are GMO’s And Why You Should Avoid Them, and I just came across this free PDF download of a shopping guide to choosing non-GMO foods. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes from one species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, or humans, into the DNA of a food crop or animal to introduce a new trait. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has reported that “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. Sounds like something you should be avoiding, right? That’s where this download comes in handy. It includes tips for avoiding GMO’s in your food and a list of ingredients in processed foods to be on the lookout for. Keep it with your reusable bags to make sure you have it with you next time you go grocery shopping.
