(NaturalNews) Genetically modified organisms (GMO`s) have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetically engineering techniques. This technology is thought to increase food yields and create super foods that grow larger and are more resilient to pests. Despite mounting evidence, the FDA and food industry continue to say GM foods are safe, well tested and necessary to feed a world dying of starvation. After many years of research on risk/benefit of GMO products, it is now quite obvious that they pose an extremely significant hazard for the entire world. There are critical steps a consumer can take to avoid consuming GMO foods.

One of the most popular genetic crop modifications makes plants immune to herbicides. In particular, the company called Monsanto has made a whole line of `RoundUp Ready` crops that are resistant to the RoundUp herbicide. However, the natural world is far superior than man`s attempt to manipulate and control nature.

Fields that have been sprayed with RoundUp for multiple years are now seeing super weeds that are impervious to RoundUP and grow up to six to seven feet tall. Andrew Kimbrell has been the Executive Director of the Center for Food Safety since 1997. He says that we now have 10-20 million acres of these super weeds that you cannot kill.

The RoundUp herbicide is also a powerful toxin for human consumption. GM products are highly sprayed with such herbicides and many strong pesticides. These toxins cause serious damage within the human body.

Unlike many other countries, GMO containing foods are still unlabeled here in America. However, according to a recent survey, if they were labeled, 53% of participants said they would not eat them. Currently 60-70% of our food in the US is genetically modified. Children`s foods are the number one GMO containing products.

Many processed foods contain 90-100% GM ingredients. Most all non-organic breads and other baked goods contain GM ingredients. Most non-organic chocolate, sweets, candy, gum, etc. contain GM ingredients. Most non-organically raised animal (meat, dairy, eggs) products contain GM ingredients. These animals are typically fed a diet that is 90+ percent GMO. Most non-organic beverages (beer, wine, soft drinks, juices) contain GM ingredients.

In May of 2009, The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) sent out a press release that called for an immediate moratorium on GM foods. They asked physicians to educate their patients and provide educational material about the health risks associated with GM foods. They proposed that physicians consider the role of GM foods in their patients` disease processes.

In their position paper, the AAEM sites several animal studies that indicate extreme health risks associated with GM foods. Some of the health risks include infertility, immune dysfunction, allergic reactions, accelerated aging, insulin dysregulation, organ malfunction and digestive dysfunction.

The AAEM quoted in their paper: `There is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects. There is causation, as defined by recognized scientific criteria. The strength of association and consistency between GM foods and disease is confirmed in several animal studies.`

How To Avoid Purchasing GMO Foods:
1.Buy organic as much as possible
2.Buy foods labeled `Non-GMO`
3.Avoid non-organic products containing corn, soy, canola, cottonseed, peanut, alfalfa, safflower, tomatoes, zucchini, crookneck squash, sugar cane, beats, peppers & papayas.
4.Avoid GMO offspring products such as high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin, soy lecithin, soy protein, etc.
5.Avoid non-organic dairy products and all other commercialized animal products.
6.Grow your own food products or purchase them from local farmers, who do not use GM seeds and products in their farms.
7.Use a non-GMO shopping guide.
