October is Non GMO Awareness Month
What is GMO?
GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) refer to the plants or animals created through the gene slicing techniques of biotechnology. They are foods created by merging DNA from different species.
GMO crops, when first introduced, were touted as the answer to world hunger. The argument was that by developing pesticides and herbicide resistant crops, farmers would be able to increase their yields and decrease costs. This has mot proven to be the case. Instead, bugs and weeks have become resistant to the widespread applications of these chemicals, leading to increased use of both. More spraying means more costs for the farmers, more damage to the environment and more health concerns.
