When it comes to eating food that you like, the best option is to opt for naturally grown products – with little to no modification through science and technology, also known as GMO-free products. Why? Read on.
Today, technology can really do anything through the help of science and research. One of its breakthroughs are genetically modified organisms (GMO), which DNAs were altered to produce something desirable. However, recent studies show that several consumers around the world are shunning GMO foods particularly because of their potential harm to human health and the environment. European Commission and European Food Safety Authority, using the recent Eurobarometer survey, revealed that the worry level on GMOs in food in the EU has generally increased since 2005. It further posited that it varied from nearly 50% in Ireland up to over 80% in Lithuania and Greece, with a mean worry level of 66% for all member states. Notably in Poland, respondents perceived GMOs as high risk than microbial food contamination, allergic reactions to food, and diet-related diseases. The percentage was considered as high as 77% worry level.
GMO-free or non-genetically modified food, has not been altered or engineered in any way. The slogan, ‘we are what we eat’ speaks of the significance of every bit and pieces of food we take. It’s no surprise why there are many advocate GMO-free food versus GMO.
So, why GMO-free products could be the best choice for you? Here are some of the benefits:
Consuming GMO-free food decreases intestinal permeability and ensures that our guts are nourished with good bacteria instead of bad bacteria or toxins. GMO foods that are harvested with glyphosate increase intestinal permeability. Consuming GMO-free foods sustains a healthy gastrointestinal, prevents nutrient deficiency, and reduces allergic reactions.
Non-GMO foods are naturally grown without the use of pesticides. Foods under this category are free of artificial preservatives, flavorings, and colors. Similarly, GMO-free animal feeds are free from an array of growth hormones and or antibiotics that can affect the human food they’ll be producing. This, in turn, frees the human body from being susceptible to diseases, such as cancer and liver damage, and creating bacteria resistant strains.
Since GMO-free foods are grown using the natural methods of farming, they promote a sustainable livelihood of local farmers. This fuses traditional ways with innovative approach without relying on genetic-modification technologies in making better and healthier food for the future.
GMO foods are grown and harvested in chemical rich surroundings. This practice can eventually cause soil erosion over a period of time. Researches showed that this process can be harmful to agriculture, especially the potential introduction of engineered genes, harming the biological diversity of the natural environment. Consuming GMO-free products sustains a healthy natural environment.
