Incline Village, NV, June 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Over the past couple of years, several attempts have been made to stop the prevalence of genetic modification in the food industry. But in spite of all these campaigns, genetically-engineered crops seem to be thriving even more. The perils have already been exposed by scientific experts, yet GMOs somehow still manage to gain government approval. Vegetable seeds are the ones most affected by this. Popular crops like corn, tomato and cucumber are so blatantly modified these days that organic non-GMO cucumber seeds are at risk of extinction.
In light of this issue, Home and Garden America (HAGA) has uploaded a presentation that details the dangers of GMO crops. The said presentation is publicly available on SlideShare so that consumers can be better informed about GMO health risks.
"One of our goals here at Home and Garden America is to spread awareness about the negative effects of GMO crops on one's health. Consumers need to realize how dangerous it is to consume genetically-engineered foods. Various chemicals are constantly being injected into GMOs so they can form a strong immunity against pests and diseases. This makes the plants grow without many issues, which helps GMO corporations reduce their production costs. However, as a result, the conventional foods being sold on the market are now filled with different chemicals that can cause a number of alarming health issues," a spokesperson for HAGA remarked.
"According to several scientific studies, consumers who eat GMO foods are at a higher risk of developing cancer, diabetes, infertility, obesity, stroke and other fatal diseases. These can all be traced back to what's in your food, so it's very crucial to be mindful about the foods you eat," he added.
In order to fight off the influence of GMOs, the spokesperson advises buying foods at the farmers' market and starting an organic vegetable garden at home. These simple tips can make a huge impact especially if more consumers join the fight against genetically-modified foods.
