Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). Most American processed foods now contain new aberrant proteins from recombinant DNA technology. GMOs have been linked to thousands of toxic and allergic reactions. Are GMOs contributing to our health crisis? Learn more about GMOs, the problems, how to protect yourself, and how to help end the genetic engineering of our food supply.
International bestselling author and filmmaker Jeffrey M. Smith is the world’s leading consumer advocate for healthier Non-GMO choices. Mr. Smith has counseled world leaders from every continent, campaigned to end the use of genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST), and influenced the first state laws in the United States regulating GMOs.
