  1. 1. GMO FACTS presented by DocWellnessWorld.com David Orman
  2. 2. What are GMOs? GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the process of gene splicing. These techniques of biotechnology are also known as genetic engineering. It is experimental technology which merges DNA from different species. The end result is unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur naturally to any degree. In other words, they are not, nor ever will be found in Nature.
  3. 3. NOTE A large and growing body of scientific data shows a direct correlation between GMO consumed substances with major, deadly health problems. In addition there are also adverse effects to the environment, some of which may irre- versible.
  4. 4. What About Safety? Most scientists not associated with companies that manufacture GMO products do NOT consider them to be safe to any degree. In more than 60 countries, GMO substances are BANNED or at least restricted due to the major health risks.
  5. 5. In America. . . In America, the government has approved GMOs and the current president has signed various bills protecting corporations that produce them. The corporations claim GMOs are safe and based on studies conducted by the IDENTICAL compan- ies, US goverments has approved them . Nevertheless, a growing number of people are re- cognizing the best Health Care is Self Care and are not only avoiding such products, but are put- ting pressure on government to reverse its policy.
  6. 6. GMOs and Labeling People want to know which foods are GMOs and which are not. They want choice. However, labelling of GMOs is not manitory. Many people are not aware of GMOs.
  7. 7. Are GMOs Common? In America, GMOs are in as much as 80% of conventional processed food despite the fact that virtually the SAME percentage of people oppose GMOs.
  8. 8. Myths and Truths Here are a sample of myths and truths about GMOs from world renowned expert, Dr. Micahel Antoniou: Myth: Genetic engineering is just an extension of natural breeding Truth: Genetic engineering is different from natural breeding and poses special risks Myth: Genetic engineering is precise and the results are predictable Truth: Genetic engineering is crude and imprecise, and the results are unpredictable
  9. 9. Myth: GM foods are strictly regulated for safety Truth: GM food regulation in most countries varies from non- existent to weak Myth: GM foods are safe to eat Truth: Studies show that GM foods can be toxic or allergenic Myth: EU research shows GM foods are safe Truth: EU research shows evidence of harm from GM foods
  10. 10. Myth: Genetic engineering will deliver more nutritious crops Truth: No GM crop that is more nutritious than its non-GM counterpart has been commercialized and many GMOs are less nutritious Myth: GM crops increase yield potential Truth: GM crops do not increase yield potential – and in many cases decrease it Myth: GM crops decrease pesticide use Truth: GM crops increase pesticide use
  11. 11. These are just a small sampling of the Facts about GMOs.
  12. 12. What Can Be Done ● Refuse GMOs whenever possible. ● Insist your local grocery provide non GMO foods ● Pass along information and educate as many as possible ● Let your politicians know you will NOT support them if they support GMOs
