Non GMO Survival Guide: Avoid GMOs with the Shop No GMO App

Did you know that in North America, over 80% of our food contains GMOs?

If you are not buying foods that are Non-GMO Project Verified, it is highly likely that GMOs

are present on your plate.

That’s not a very appetizing reality, is it?

There is more than enough solid evidence to make us seriously question whether GMOs are safe

for us to be eating.

Consequently, The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) has urged doctors

to advise their patients to avoid genetically modified (GM) foods, stating that:

“Several animal studies indicate serious 

health risks associated with GM food.”

These risks include:

• Infertility

• Immune problems

• Accelerated aging

• Faulty insulin regulation

• Changes in major organs and the

gastrointestinal system.”

In view of these and other risks, it is important for us be more vigilant about protecting ourselves

our families and our environment now.

In short, the future is in our hands.
