GMO IQ Level: Superior

Congratulations! Your results indicate that you’re a GMO Expert! So you know your GMO basics, but here are a few facts you probably didn’t know:

1. Studies have linked GMO consumption to a multitude of health problems.

According to the Institute for Responsible Technology, the hidden side-effects of eating GMOs are numerous and difficult to detect. Long-term health consequences include kidney damage and infertility, among others.

2. GMOs pollute the environment.

Genetically modified plants have been altered to resist pesticides and herbicides, at the cost of high toxicity. This has given rise to superweeds which invade the environment and kill critical native pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

3. Local economies are often impacted by GMO consumption.

While the giant pharmaceutical companies bulk-produce GMO crops for higher profits, local organic farmers are hurt by the price undercut. Organic farmers are also at risk of pollution, as GM crops are extremely tough and invasive.

4. GMOs are present in approximately 75% of processed supermarket food.

This means that it’s not an easy task to avoid GMO consumption, but there are a few things you can do while shopping. Go for the USDA Organic or Non-GMO Project labeled foods whenever you can. For dairy products, look for the RBST-free marked products.
