A GMO (genetically modified organism), also known as Frankenstein food, is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. These foreign genes come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.
What is a GMO?
Food is essential to our lives. Healthy food means healthy living. We are in the middle of the American obesity and cancer epidemics. At Life by You, we believe that those epidemics are caused by the GMOs and other environmental issues.
Every day, we eat genetically engineered food and we don't even know it.
Genetically Modified Food Must Be Labeled.
Life by You is taking action to label genetically modified food.
Being aware of the problem is not enough.
We have a right to know what is in the food we eat. Current regulations do not allow for transparency, so we don’t have the ability to know when it comes to genetically engineered and modified foods.
On these pages we will be asking these questions:
- Are GMOs bad for my health?
- Should GMO labeling be mandatory?
- Which foods contain GMOs?
- Do GMOs harm the environment?
We Want GMO Foods Labeled. Join Our Action.
Ninety-two percent of Americans believe that GMO foods should be labeled as such. If you are one of them, we will be collecting signatures soon.
