How well is your knowledge about non-GMO — and is shopping these goods actually good for you?
According to a recent study from Consumer Reports, 70 percent of Americans want no GMOs in their food, with 92 percent of them want this to be labeled on food s.
The problem is, 90 percent of canola and cotton, 88 percent of corn, 94 percent of soy, 95 percent of sugar beets and most of papaya grown in the U.S. is genetically modified, which is literally in everything, according to The Non-GMO Project.
Organizations like Earth Open Source have establied GMO papers claiming that these kinds of foods can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious, higher pesticide use, and create herbicide-tolerant “superweeds” that plague crops and harm soil
However, according to Alison Van Eenennaam, Ph.D, an animal geneticist and biotechnology expert from the University of California, Davis, after examined a lot of researches and experiments, have come to the conclusion that she sees no health concerns on billions of animals every year eating this feed almost exclusively.
