What you need to know…
Commercial sale of genetically modified foods began in 1994. The process of modifying these foods enhance growth and efficiency of food conversion. Most food modifications have primarily focused on cash crops in high demand by farmers such as soybean, corn, canola, and cotton.
Why GMO’s Should Be Avoided As Much As Possible !
- GM products could cause an allergic reaction.
- Increased toxicity in produce!
- Decreased Nutritional Value.
- GM products can compromise digestive health!
Eating organically grown food — free of chemicals, bursting with more nutrition, helps massively with your health, but also taste buds!
Organic foods in some cases have higher nutritional value than conventional food. Organic food is often more expensive than conventionally-grown food. But this can be conquered by setting some priorities, by only buying the foods that are most likely to be high in pesticides, organic. This can help you to stay within your food budget !
Here are some foods that tend to be high in pesticides; Apples
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Kale/Collard Greens
- Summer Squash
- Nectarines (imported)
Meats, dairy and eggs should also be bought organic if possible as Non- organic products in this genre are usually laced with pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones and in some cases steroids.
