How To Identify Genetically Modified Food In The Shops And Markets?
So far there isn’t a right way and a universal solution, instead we have to rely on common sense, logic and instinct, as well as our own researches on suppliers of raw materials, food producers and information through the media.
GMO food is nicer, rounder, and shinier, with equal size, bright color, without bruising and damages, without scars and signs of spoilage. In nature we are not all the same. Someone is higher, some lower, some bigger and some skinnier. The same goes for natural fruits and vegetables. Buy fruits and vegetables that are, so to speak, improperly with an ugly look. Look for fruits and vegetables with different colors, sizes and shapes. Nothing will be lacking if it is slightly hit and shows signs of being really alive i.e. to start spoiling. On the shelves where such fruits and vegetables can be found, chances are they are not GMO.
Buy from farmers who are growing the products themselves and use the above tips. The farmers also can grow a GMO plant without being aware of it or feed their farm animals with GMO products (mostly corn). The meat from such animals, in principle, should look the same as the normal one, but note the appearance of the liver and kidneys. If they look sick, you better quit buying because these animals may be fed with GMO food.
Neglected the beautiful packaging. Profitability of GMO plants, fruits and vegetables allows manufacturers to spend more money on beautiful packaging.
Inform yourself on the internet for countries that are growing GMOs. If something is originating from the country which has introduced GMO most likely is GMO: Be especially careful. Follow the news in the countries that prohibit imports of GMOs as France, Hungary. So, at least, somewhat you will make sure that the product is not GMO. The same applies for the countries that are major producers of GMO products – the USA, Argentina, Brazil, China and India that produces GM cotton.
Workers in Monsanto are not eating the food they grow, doctors who vaccinate others’ children are not vaccinated themselves nor their children. Watch out in the stores. GM food is cheapest, and healthy food is generally more expensive. The old rule that keeps health is diet with seasonal fruits and vegetables. If you see in stores fruits or vegetables when it’s not their time it’s usually imported (note the country of origin) or grown in greenhouses using all bio-technologies, accelerators of growth and pesticides.
