Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)

GVOThere 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. Gentechnisch veränderter Mais 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.
