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
A large and growing body of scientific data
shows a direct correlation between GMO
consumed substances with major, deadly
In addition there are also adverse effects to
the environment, some of which may irre-
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.
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.
GMOs and Labeling

GMOs and which are not. They want
However, labelling of GMOs is not manitory.

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.
Myths and Truths
Here are a sample of myths and truths about
GMOs from world renowned expert, Dr.
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
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
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
Myth: GM crops increase yield potential
Truth: GM crops do not increase yield potential – and in many cases
Myth: GM crops decrease pesticide use
Truth: GM crops increase pesticide use
These are just a small sampling of the Facts
What Can Be Done
● Refuse GMOs whenever possible.
● Insist your local grocery provide non GMO
● Pass along information and educate as many
● Let your politicians know you will NOT support
them if they support GMOs
