What is non-GMO?

Posted on Nov 25, 2014 by in Food as Medicine |

And what does it mean?

From our friends at the Non-GMO Project:

“GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.”

Food that is genetically engineered is made to withstand heavy applications of insecticides and other chemicals.  To be on the safe side, feed your family organic and non-GMO certified foods.  (Look for the non-GMO verified seal).
