A few weeks ago I was scouting farms. Specifically farms that grow sustainable agriculture. This means they use farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. It draws and learns from organic farming, or so I thought!
Since today’s society is wrapped up in more and bigger, farming techniques have taken to commercial production to create more and bigger everything. The problem is the methods to get there are unhealthy for humans and the environment and leads to much of our food becoming genetically modified.
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.
This practice has altered the chemistry of our food affecting its nutritional value, creating toxicity, developing allergic reactions and harming the environment.
Here I was thinking non-GMO was safe and now even that’s not enough :/
Be AWARE people!
