GMO Myths and Truths

HarvestGMO Myths and Truths is a report that is the outgrowth of an evidence-based examination of the claims made for the safety and efficacy of genetically modified crops. This 2012 document was prepared by the preeminent researchers and scientists: Michael Antoniou, Claire Robinson, and John Fagan.

Based on the evidence presented in this report, there is no need to take risks with genetically modified (GM) crops. Effective and sustainable solutions already exist without the need for GM technology. Conventional plant breeding, in some cases helped by safe modern technologies like gene mapping and marker assisted selection, continues to outperform GM in producing high-yield, drought-tolerant, and pest- and disease-resistant crops that can meet our present and future food needs.

This report is both in-depth, and yet easy to read with “at a glance” boxes for quick facts. To download the GMO Myths and Truths report, click here.

GMO Ticking Time Bomb

The first in an upcoming series of mini-documentary videos about GMOs, this Gary Null production delves into the reality of GMO health risks. Gary Null calls it a “GMO ticking time bomb.”

This video reveals some of the health problems caused by GMOs, including infertility, accelerated aging, organ damage, immune malfunction and more.

Learn More About GMOs

So far, you know that GMOs are genetically modified organisms. These organisms have been altered by scientists. They have either inserted a modified gene or a gene from another organism using the techniques of genetic engineering. According to gmoawareness.org, Americans should know that GMOs are; 1) genetically modified organisms; 2) Untested; 3) Unlabeled; 4) Banned or restricted in 50 countries and 5) In most of your food.

So, if GMOs are in most of our food, how do we avoid them? Buy USDA Organic. For more information go to gmoawareness.orgGMO Food3
