Why we should be concerned about Genetically Modified Food
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are unregulated and unatural ingredients found in over 70% of the foods in the US.Consumers mistakenly believe that the FDA and CFIA approved GM foods through rigorous, in-depth, long-term studies but no safety studies were done prior to their wide spread introduction to our food supply.
The FDA has claimed it was not aware of any information showing that GM crops were different “in any meaningful or uniform way,” from non-GMO crops and therefore didn’t require testing. But 44,000 internal FDA documents made public by a lawsuit show that this was not true.
The consensus among the FDA’s own scientists was that GM foods were quite different and could lead to unpredictable and hard-to-detect allergens, toxins, new diseases and nutritional problems. These scientists urged superiors to require long-term studies, and were ignored.
