GMO information sheet!

GMO = genetically modified organism
Genes of one species are put into genes of another species.

- GMO’s were introduced into our food supply in the 90ties without the general public being informed.

- GMO’s are not tested enough for their safety (and what does it say about 'food' if it has to be tested on animals first?)

- The third generation of hamsters and mice fed GMO feed lost the ability to have babies

- Buffalo, goats and sheep died after grazing on Bt cotton plants.

- Bt is a toxin inserted into the DNA of crops so insects that feed on them die.

- 93% of human umbilical cord blood tested in Canada still contained the Bt toxins.

- Allergies, Asthma, ADD, ADHD and Autism are more common since GMO crops are circulating in our food supplies.

- Animal tests have shown that when animals are fed a GMO diet the number of stomach cells proliferate uncontrollably causing severe inflammation in the digestive tract.

- When animals are taken off a GMO diet their behavior changes into normal animal behavior and they are no longer lethargic. 

- GMO crops can cross with non-GMO crops and nobody knows what comes out of it.

- GMO’s promote monoculture and use more pesticides, chemicals and water to grow.

Not all is lost. Yet.

!!!Help me in the fight to get rid of GMO’s!!!

- Buy organic and local as much as you can.

- Avoid non-organic Corn, Soy, Canola oil, Cotton Seeds and Sugar Beets as over 90% of them are genetically modified. And also in almost every processed product you take out of the shelves in grocery stores. READ INGREDIENTS; products made from above mentioned gmo crops have MANY different names. 

- Fight for labeling. Join me on facebook (Holistic Family Nutrition) for updates and links to sign petitions to get GMO foods labeled. The more people know about it the better and the less power corporations and chemical companies will have. Vote with your wallet! Give your kids the future they deserve and help the environment!
