The GMO problem

Genetically modified foods are products, which in any way contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

During the process the plant’s or animal’s original genetic material is altered, or another organism’s genetic material is integrated into it (transgenic organism).

Blurry future, risks, and challenges

Research scientists acknowledge, that they lack the necessary information, hence many questions remain unanswered regarding GM-plants’ effects.

Whilst European citizens largely support a GM-free agriculture, the European Union permitted the trade of genetically modified products for human and animal consumption. Today many professionals debate about the potential effects of genetically modified foods on the human organism. Among the many views some forecasted potential risks to health, whilst others claimed these products were exempt of such risks. What seems to be certain though, is that the environmental harm and the decrease in biodiversity caused are sufficient reasons to cease genetic modification of organisms.

Blurry future, risks, and challenges

Research scientists acknowledge, that they lack the necessary information, hence many questions remain unanswered regarding GM-plants’ effects.

These plants take a heavy toll on the environment, since they require the use of chemicals, and vermins may develop resistance. Biodiversity lessens, and genetically modified organisms contaminate the natural environment. Genetic modification affects animal husbandry: farmed salmon for example undergo GM processes for an accelerated growth, therefore they reach large sizes in just months, resulting in sooner realised profits. Genetically modified salmons mix with those living in nature, hence altering the attributes of the entire species.

The spread of GM plants overshadows traditional farming, and could cause its end ultimately. Therefore we invite you to join the GMOZERO Project, protect your health, and buy GMO-free products.
