The Advantages of Heirloom Vegetables Over GMOs

In today’s modern times, a tremendous amount of fruits and veggies are now being genetically modified all over the world. Large companies use genetic engineering methods to alter, mutate, or delete genes of these produce—and this results to inconsistent and dangerous varieties that come with various health risks.

What are the possible health risks you can get from eating GMO foods? First off, you can increase your risk for cancer and disrupt the hormones in your body. Two, it affects children by slowing down their mental development and IQ. Lastly, GMOs can trigger different allergic reactions that could be life-threatening.

For these alarming reasons and more, many experts suggest eating only certified non-GMO foods. One way to do this is by planting heirloom seeds in your backyard. This way, your family can enjoy the safest and healthiest produce without any genetic modifications and toxic chemicals in them.
