Incline VIllage, NV, February 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Home and Garden America (HAGA) recently published a new blog post on its official website. The said post discusses the top advantages of heirloom survival seeds and why gardeners should prefer them over GMO seeds.
According to HAGA, an alarming amount of vegetables and fruits are currently being altered in various testing labs around the world. Many GMO companies use risky genetic engineering techniques to make fresh produce more resistant to pesticide and diseases, but altering the genes of these produce often leads to more inconsistent varieties that are dangerous to human health.
Various scientific reports over the years have demonstrated just how unsafe GMO products can be. Genetically-modified foods have been shown to disrupt hormones in the body and even increase one's risk of acquiring cancer. These health issues don't just affect adults but children in all ages as well. GMOs can actually decelerate a child's mental development and generate lower IQ scores. Moreover, GMO products can cause serious allergic reactions that could be fatal to affected individuals.
HAGA points out that these disturbing health risks are the main reasons why people are now either buying organic produce or starting their own vegetable gardens. Many gardeners consider heirloom survival seeds as the safest seeds to grow because they're all-natural, non-hybrid, non-GMO and 100% organic. They are also much fresher and more flavorful than their GMO counterparts that's why HAGA experts highly recommend heirloom varieties for daily consumption.
HAGA experts also suggest two methods to successfully avoid the numerous health risks of GMOs: purchase organic produce at the local farmers' market, or perhaps grow heirloom survival seeds at home. These are the two best ways to obtain safe food without the added chemicals and genetic modifications to them.
