Guys I’ve become obsessed with GMOs, I’m a real Netflix & chill fan and I also love to research everything that concerns food, your health or weird interesting things. I think I’m a little late to this tale but I’m sure many of you don’t even know what this is.
Well here I am to explain to you what GMOs are, where they are and how you can avoid them the most you can.
What is a GMO?
“A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified using recombinant DNA methods (also called gene splicing), gene modification or transgenic technology. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.”
I know it sound very confusing but it is what is, it’s a food that you put in your body which has been genetically modified so we can say it’s not actually “natural”or original. I also thought that when my food was organic it also came with a natural origin, but in fact what it is and how it is grown are two separate stories. What it is can be a natural being or modified seed or animal and How it is grown can be organic or with pesticides. So what now? Food that’s organic doesn’t automatically mean it is GMO free, there’s lots of food that are GMO free but not organic. So how can we combine both? It’s a hard thing I have to say but I think you have to try to find both in the things that you eat the MOST. And those things that are sometimes hard to find organic you can at least find them GMO free.
Genetic modification its something that affects many of the products that we consume daily, it doesn’t matter if they are organic. So be on the look out guys, its important to know what we put in our bodies and to have the right to know whether they have been modified from its DNA or not.
Happy Non GMO month!!
