Genetically Modified Food

Genetically Engineered Food News is focused on informing consumers of the possible dangers and effects of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) on the world’s food supply.

Unfortunately much of this information is not readily available for consumers so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to be a resource for the distribution of this knowledge through this website. You can take action by staying informed and spreading the word. Sign up today for our newsletter and you’ll receive the freshest daily news about genetically engineered and genetically modified foods.

If you want to “Be GMO Free” stay informed by checking out these recommended books featured on GeneticallyEngineeredFoodNews.com!

GMO Survey

GM Alfalfa

Genetically Engineered Alfalfa

Organic farmers have growing concerns that genetically engineered alfalfa could contaminate their fields. The organic standards prohibits the use of genetically engineered or modified elements even if they are accidental or beyond the organic farmers control. View Articles >>

GM Animals

Genetically Engineered Animals

The regulation of genetically engineered animals has been defined by the FDA providing a set of "recommendations" to developers of genetically engineered and modified animals to help them meet responsibilities and obligations. View Articles >>

GM Chicken

Genetically Engineered Chicken

Because of the demands by consumers for poultry, rather than red meat, the turkey and chicken industries are rapidly growing. The chickens of today are being genetically modified to reach maturity twice as fast and nearly double the size as their ancestors. Does this scare you because it’s scares the hell out of me!

GM Corn

Genetically Engineered Corn

In America GE corn accounts for over 40 percent of corn and the number is growing. Arguments for the genetically engineered corn claim that it protects from pests, lowers costs and increases crop yield. More and more concerns of the unintended effects of genetically engineered corn on humans and the environment are surfacing. View Articles >>

GM Cotton

Genetically Engineered Cotton

While we continue to produce ever growing quantities of genetically modified crops in America farmers around the world are rising up to remove biotech companies in their countries. Monsanto is scrambling to persuade farmers in India that ge seeds are better and more profitable, saying it will increase yields and has no ecological impact. View Articles >>

GM Crops

Genetically Engineered Crops

More than 93% of soybeans, 93% of cotton, 86% of corn and 95% of sugar beets are genetically modified in America. The majority of ge crops are grown in North America but there is increasing planting in developing countries such as Brazil and India. View Articles >>

GM Food

Genetically Engineered Food

Some argue that the development of Genetically Engineered food is positive by creating higher yielding crops that are more resistant to pests. Unfortunately there has been no long term studies on the human and environmental impact of introduces these modified organisms into the food supply. View Articles >>

GM Fruits

Genetically Engineered Fruits

When we think of ge foods we often think of corn, rice, and soybean and forget that a large amount of the fresh fruits we are eating are genetically modified as well. Genetically engineered fruits include tomatoes, apples, strawberries, and papayas. GE bananas are in the works. View Articles >>

GM Plants

Genetically Engineered Plants

Genetically engineered plants are grown from seeds engineered in labs. Providing most of the food we eat, the majority of corn and soybean grown in America are genetically engineered. By-products of corn and soybean are included in nearly everything we consume. View Articles >>

GM Potatoes

Genetically Engineered Potatoes

GE potatoes are in the works to increase the protein level quantity. Not only does this potato have more protein but it’s been yield up to 25% more in weight. We’ve all heard promises that GM crops will have increased yields as well as be cheaper to produce for farmers. Initial research on this ge potatoe has shown no allergic or toxic reaction in rats.

GM Rice

Genetically Engineered Rice

The most consumed grain food is by all means rice with over half of the world’s people consuming it on a daily basis. With over 3 billion people eating rice you would assume that profits would be good for any company attempting to acquire proprietary rights on ge rice seed just as they have with soy and corn.

GM Salmon

Genetically Engineered Salmon

GE salmon is Atlantic Salmon that has been injected with growth hormones allowing them to grow twice as fast as conventional salmon. The genetically engineered salmon will be the first genetically engineered animal approved for human consumption. View Articles >>

GM Soy

Genetically Engineered Soy

Soy is seen as a great staple food particularly with vegans and vegetarians. You may find it hard to believe that soy is nothing less than wholesome and nutritious. Unfortunately, 93% of soy produced in America is genetically modified. This genetically engineered soy has been shown to cause health complications and death amongst rates in lab testing. What could it be doing to you? View Articles >>

GM Strawberries

Genetically Engineered Strawberries

A may concern with genetically engineered strawberries is the isolating of peanut genes to prevent strawberries from freezing from an early frost, thus killing the crop. The peanut has a gene that prevents this freezing. The problem with the peanut is that nearly 2% of Americans are allergic to peanuts. See the potential problem? View Articles >>

GM Sugar Beets

Genetically Engineered Sugar Beets

The spring of 2011 will begin the planting of ge sugar beets. Roundup Ready sugar beets are genetically engineered to be resistant to Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup. The major concern from organic farmers is simple, sugar beets are wind pollinated. In other words, these beets will easily contaminate nearby organic farms making them ge sugar beets as well.

GM Trees

Genetically Engineered Trees

Production of transgenic trees by paper and lumber companies is a concern for many reasons. Genes spliced into trees interfering with natural forests is a certainty. Genetic contamination by GE trees is a huge issue and will continue. Pollen from trees can be transported more than 600 miles. View Articles >>

GM Vegetables

Genetically Engineered Vegetables

WIth more than 20 corn varieties, 11 cotton, 6 tomato, 3 soybean along with sugar beets, squash, cantaloupe, rice, flax, alfalfa, wheat, and on and on genetically engineered vegetables are represented well in North America. View Articles >>

GM Wheat

Genetically Engineered Wheat

One of the world’s most important staple food is being targeting by companies for genetic engineering. Seeking regulatory approval, Monsanto is pushing to release ge wheat in North America as well as the rest of the world. View Articles >>

GE Ethics

GMO Ethics

Concerns surrounding the use of GMOs are in such great numbers that environmentalists, policy makers, corporations and scientists have found difficulties in determining what issues exist and which are most important. View Articles >>

GE Health

GMO Health

Since 1996 Americans have been eating genetically modified foods in nearly all processed foods. Linked to allergenic reactions and toxins these GMO’s are making thousands sick and sterile. Don’t believe the hype? Read on. View Articles >>

Label GMO

GMO Labeling

The USDA and FDA oppose the labeling of genetically modified food products on our grocery shelves. The question really is why. Possibly the relationship between the policy makers and genetic engineering companies like Monsanto. You be the judge. View Articles >>

Policies on GMO

GMO Policies

When reviewing the US policies on GMOs and genetic engineering in agriculture you might quickly realize that they are tremendously different then that of the EU. Much of this is because of the consumers complete rejection of genetically modified foods in Europe.View Articles >>

No GMO

Non-GMO

Eating organic in American can not only be more expensive but more difficult to achieve. Because of the lack of proper GMO labeling and many stores not fully embracing Non-GMO products extra work in required to be GMO free.

bovine growth hormone

rBGH

European nations and Canada have banned rBGH outright. Meanwhile in America the injection of rBGH to dairy cows to increase milk production continues. Why would the EU and Canada not want more bang for their buck? It’s not like it’s been linked to cancer risks. Or has it? View Articles >>

cow growth hormone

rBST

Bowine somatotropin also known as bovine growth hormone is naturally occuring protein hormon in cattle. Using recombinant DNA technology Monsanto has synthesized this protein which increases milk production with injections. The United States is the only developed nation to permit humans to drink milk from cows given this artificial growth hormone. View Articles >>
