GMO’s are Genetically Modified Organism’s, foreign genes are forced into the DNA of soybean, cottonseed, canola, sugar beets, and alfalfa. These genes are inserted from species such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply. Several animal studies have linked serious health conditions with GM food, such as infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulator, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.
NeoLife-GNLD made the decision decades ago that GMO’s were not a part of the human food chain and were not to be included in any of their whole food supplements.
Can you say that about your food supply and supplements?
The following is a letter from NeoLife-GNLD stating their position on GMO’s.
The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) has been aware of the increasing presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) within the earth biosphere for some years. We have been watching developments closely for more than a decade.
Our primary concerns relate to the introduction of genetically modified DNA, also known as transgenic DNA, into the human food chain. It is our belief that the genetic manipulation that is involved in many of these GMOs could not occur naturally within Nature, and thus would not qualify as “natural” ingredients under our criteria.
Though there has not been any specific research that shows that there is a direct health risk associated with this modified DNA, it is the SAB’s position that there are too many unanswered questions for us to allow genetically modified DNA into our products. We have therefore directed all our manufacturers and suppliers to guarantee that all raw materials are free of genetically modified DNA and we monitor the situation closely in our laboratories and factories. Thus, we can say that GNLD products do not contain genetically modified organisms in general or genetically modified DNA in particular.
