The most important thing you can do for your health, the environment, and the innocent animals is to go veggie.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are also known as genetically engineered-, bio-engineered-, biotech crops, or transgenic organisms.
Up to 80 percent of processed food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and you are likely unknowingly eating them. Our health and environmental safety has been put at risk through industry's genetic manipulation of our food. Please read the information here to find out why you should be concerned and what you can do about it.
Down to Earth, along with the natural products industry, strongly supports the Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project provides manufacturers with the "Non-GMO Project Verified" seal pictured above, which is backed by independent testing. The “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal means that GMO contamination has been avoided throughout the growth and harvesting of crops, their processing, storage and packaging. As of December 2011, over 3,000 products have been verified, with thousands more in the process. As increasing numbers of manufacturers include the “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal on their packaging, you will see more and more of the verified products on our shelves. Consumers have the right to choose what foods to eat and feed their families. This Non-GMO logo enables consumers to exercise this right.
