What you need to know about GMO

GMO is a food source the comes from a Genetically Modified Organism. This means the genetic material of the food source has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.

Many food products have ingredients that include GMO food sources. Some health groups say there are unanswered questions regarding the potential long-term impact on human health from food derived from GMOs, and propose mandatory labelling.

The Organic Consumers Association, and the Union of Concerned Scientists and Greenpeace stated that risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities.

If you are eating healthy foods, eating organic foods then you might want to look out for products that have the GMO free stamp.

Here is a video about GMO, that certainly made me consider looking more labels, and original source of foods.
