The harm of GM products isn’t proved, but if it’s important to you that your food is completely organic, WeGoRo will tell you how to avoid GM foods.
GMO means genetically modified organisms (plants, animals, microorganisms) with transplanted genes from other organisms.
GM foods are resistant to pests, herbicides, fungi, and viruses. They taste better and grow faster than organic products.
For now, there’s no scientific proof that modified products are harmful to humans. Numerous international research institutions and scientific organizations prove it.
GM products can cause an allergic reaction. For example, if you’re allergic to hazelnuts and you ate a product with hazelnut genes, it may cause an allergic reaction. This is why you should always read the information on labels attentively.
Organic products are marked in a special way. Look for “100% organic,“ ”Organic,“ or “Made with organic ingredients” labels. They guarantee the product doesn’t contain GM components.
In the USA, fruit and vegetables are marked with a PLU-code of 5 numbers on a label. The code on GM products starts with an 8.
Genetically modified foods look perfect. They have the right shape, the same size, and a long shelf life because new genes let them resist negative external impact. For example, the Bacillus thuringiensis gene added to GM plants produces a toxin that poisons pests.
If vegetables are touched by insects, they’re probably organic.
They’re added to such foods as:
