GMO’s make a poisonous factory in you body.

WHAT IS GMO?  <<click me

Being a parent should not mean you have to be a scientist to eat healthy.

 

GMO foods are NOT nutritious for our health, the planet, or really anything else. However it has become quite difficult to see what foods have GMO in them and which do not. Below are tips and the list of words that mean GMO. Check out our video on GMO Foods located under ‘Visual Aids’ on our Flossary page.

eat organicTIPS:

1. Shop Organic. Products labeled organic have no GMO ingredients and are safe. You may look for the “NON GMO Project VERIFIED” label. To learn more download the NON GMO Shopping Guide or the NO GMO App from  http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/ Also available in spanish. Farmer’s Markets are not necessarily organic however you may find more locally owned farmers where you may ask what you need.

2. Avoiding Bad Foods: The GMO products currently being manufactured are:

CORN, SOYBEANS, CONOLA, COTTONSEED, SUGAR BEETS, PAPAYA, ZUCCHINI AND YELLOW SQUASH. THESE FOODS FROM US, CHINA AND HAWAII HAVE GMO. ALSO GM ALFALFA IS FED TO LIVESTOCK.

3. Be careful. Though the meat or product you may be buying may say the are cage free or free range, the animals may be being fed GMO foods. The genetically modified organisms, if they aren’t already in the livestock, they are consumed through the foods, go into the livestock and still end up at your dinner table.  Look for 100% grass-fed animals at least.

4. Sugar. If the product says “SUGAR” on the food panel, it is a combination of both sugar cane and GM sugar beets. So you want to look for pure or 100% cane sugar, evaporated cane juice or organic sugar.

5. Snacks made from wheat, rice or oats are best as well as non-GM oils. There is no GM popcorn, blue or red corn, however they may have contamination by the seasonings, oils or other ingredients.

6. Look for 100% wheat flour, pasta, couscous, rice, quinoa, oats, barley, sorghum an dried beans, except for soybeans.

7. Fruits. If the fruit or vegetable has been canned, packaged, or frozen, there may be additives.

8. Some dairy farmers inject rbGH or rbST or are fed GM feed so look for Organic Dairy products.

9. Oils and Dressings. Use oils such as pure olive, coconut,, sesame, sunflower, safflower, almond, grapeseed and peanut oils.

10. Cook your own food. Most restaurants order their meats and dairy from American sourced foods. Asking your restaurants and grocery stores for GM free foods is what will most definitely spark the change that is needed.

GMO: If you see any of these ingredients on the food panel of the product you are buying, put it back, ITS TOXIC!     READ READ READ!
