Did you know about GMOs?
October is NonGMO month. Foodsmiths unequivocally supports the full disclosure of product ingredients to consumers, including their right to know whether food products contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). We believe the cultivation of GMOs and their presence in our food supply pose a significant potential threat to human and animal health and to the environment. The development of GMOs is fundamentally contrary to our vision of a sustainable future. (If you would like to read more about our position on GMOs, please link to it here.)
Public concern about GMOs is rising as studies increasingly raise doubts about the long term safety and environmental impact of this experimental technology. For instance, did you know that almost all GMOs are engineered to withstand direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. Despite biotech industry promises, none of the GMO traits currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition or any consumer benefit. -- (http://www.nongmomonth.org)
