There has been a huge increase in Genetically Engineered (GE) foods appearing on the market and a growing concern that these Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are harmful to animals and humans. GE or GMO products have crept into the food chain without us knowing. 90% of baby food products, fast foods, vegetable oils, juices, biscuits, cakes and sweets have been contaminated by corn and soya products that are genetically modified.
Grown primarily in the USA, Brazil and Argentina, where 90% of corn, soya and beet crops are genetically modified. But the food products are not labelled correctly, sometimes not at all. Also, almost all livestock is now fed on GM feed. There is conclusive research and evidence to show that the GMO eaten by the animals is also passed on to humans through meat, milk, eggs and cheese.
The health effects on animals and human beings is potentially catastrophic; ranging from allergies to cancerous tumours and the behavioural effects on people and animals from eating GM foods are still unknown.
In addition, the high toxicity of GE crops and their pesticide complements are also destroying the soils, contaminating water sources, and wiping out Nature by killing millions of insects and thus birds and other animals daily.
The pesticide glyphosate has been banned in Austria as of July 2nd 2019. Austria’s parliament passed a bill banning all uses of the weedkiller. In 2015, glyphosate, most recognised as part of Monsanto’s weedkiller RoundUp, but also found in many different pesticides, was rated as a probable carcinogen (class 2A) by the World Health Organisation.

Already 90% of all baby food and 80% of all processed food is genetically modified. Genetically modified substances can be found in corn and soya seeds, and just as frequently in animal food for dogs, cats, birds, cows and fish, as well as in our own food. The effects of genetically modified organisms have a disastrous potential – ranging from allergies to cancers and even death, causing tremendous damage. They unhinge the entire food chain. We show you what to pay attention to in order to have only natural, organic food on your plate.
Are GMOs really dangerous for human beings, for animals, and for nature, especially for plants, soil and water? Read our Fact Sheet for an overview of Genetically Modified Organisms; the state of our food today; and what you can do about it to ensure that your family, friends and pets are safe from this silent invasion.
