A GMO, short for genetically modified organism, is a plant or animal whose genetic material has been manipulated using genetic engineering techniques. More specifically, the DNA from bacterial, viruses, or other plants and animals are extracted and transferred to another living organism, producing combinations that are artificial and do not occur in nature. Why is this a concern? Because GMOs have never been proven safe and in the United States, it is not mandatory for manufacturers to label their products as genetically modified. As a matter of fact, GMOs are approved by the FDA as safe for consumption in the US, an endorsement that is indeed questionable according to controversial evidence.
As a matter of fact, according to the only long-term peer-reviewed scientific study published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (FTC) and Environmental Sciences Europe, GMOs increase the risks of liver and kidney diseases, hormonal disturbances, infertility and cancer. High-risk GM crops include corn, canola, alfalfa, cotton, soy, Hawaiian papaya, sugar beets, and squash (yellow and zucchini), according to the Non-GMO Project. The number of GMO products available in the market is rapidly increasing every day, and yet no significant, scientifically credible long-term study has demonstrated that GMOs are not harmful.
