Join The No GMO Challenge
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE EATING?
As you pour the extra virgin olive oil into your homemade salad dressing you feel satisfied that you’re eating healthy. But are you? Is your olive oil real or is it one of the many olive oils on the market that have been corrupted with low-end oils or other additives?
GMO’s or genetically modified organisms can be found in over 66% of the products on grocery store shelves, yet even if you are a diligent label reader, you won’t find them listed. And they are harmful. According to scientists, GM foods create negative effects such as allergic reactions, increased cancer risks, and long-term environmental toxins.
Real Food Media and the Institute for Responsible Technology are urging consumers to learn what they’re really eating by taking the No GMO Challenge. The challenge requests that people make a 30-day commitment to avoid GMO foods from the five principal GM crops: corn, soy, canola, cottonseed oil, and sugar from sugar beets. To join the challenge, log on to the No GMO challenge site http://realfoodmedia.com/no-gmo-challenge and register.
Once you’ve joined the challenge, the website will take you through the process of learning how to eat foods without GMOs by furnishing a complimentary Non-GMO Shopping Guide. The guide gives tips for staying GMO free and it provides a list of Non-GMO products in each of the food categories. After you’ve read the guide and you’re into your 30-day challenge, the website encourages you to join their Blog Carnival every Monday and enter to win prizes every Thursday.
The prizes are offered by non-GMO companies that are committed to eradicating GMOs from our foods. Some of the most recent prizes have been a gallon of non-GMO Real Olive Oil from Chaffin Family Orchards in Oroville, California and a $100 worth of non-GMO meats, dairy and other products from US Wellness Meats.
Be good to your body, your family, and our environment, join the No GMO Challenge and find out what you’re really eating.
