Watch what happens to this family as they switch from eating pesticide-sprayed foods to eating only organic foods. This study done by the Swedish Environmental Research Institute was conducted for only two weeks and will quickly answer the question, Why Eat Organic Foods !
Historically, farmers grew food from seeds passed down from the previous harvests--harvested and sold as the real food it was. Then large corporations began seed genetics, more chemical pesticides and genetically modified organisms, patenting new seed technology. This new genetic modification of seeds allowed the corporations to also sell the chemical pesticides that the seeds were engineered to withstand. The new altered seeds and foods have become the model for farmers to follow. What are genetically modified foods? GMO or genetically modified organisms are living organisms that have been artificially altered in a lab through genetic engineering. This engineering creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not naturally occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding. Typical commercial GMOs have been engineered to withstand herbicides.
There is growing evidence that connects GMOs with health and environmental damage. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and the countries of the European Union have significant restrictions or BANS on GMO production or sales.
Now when you shop at the grocery store in the U.S., you can't "see" the difference in the produce and you can't tell the difference between regular and organic foods unless they are labeled. GMO produce is not required to be labeled. Many people feel they are paying for a fancier food labeled "organic", but do we know what genetically modified foods and pesticides are doing to our health and to that of our children. Surveys consistently show that Americans want to know--want the choice, if they are buying GMO or not. Currently in the U.S. GMOs are in as much as 80% of conventional processed foods according to the NonGMO Project that certifies non-gmo products.
