GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism, the term represents any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs have a variety of use in crops. These include use as a new hybrid species that are resistant to certain pests; the development of crops with higher tolerance of exposure to toxic herbicides such as Roundup thereby increasing pesticide use; and those which have improved drought tolerance etc.
Many people are understandably concerned about the impact of GMOs on their health and the environment. No extensive long-term tests have been conducted, they simply have not been around long enough to understand the health and environmental impact. It has fueled the interest in organic foods and products. Customers who want to avoid GMOs and eat organic seek labelling and government regulation.
The United States and Canadian governments do NOT allow companies to label products “100% Certified Organic” if they contain genetically modified ingredients, so buying 100% Organic, USDA Certified Organic labelled products is usually the easiest way to identify and avoid genetically modified ingredients.
Organic agriculture avoids the use of synthetic pesticides, antibiotics, hormones or human waste, and instead relies on fertilizers and pesticides of natural origin. It also utilizes techniques such as crop rotation, companion planting and mixed cropping all to promote sustainability, soil fertility and biological diversity.
Finding real organic quality ingredients is a process, and one that very few are willing to take the time and energy to pursue.
