GMO-Free-Prescott is a coalition of consumer, business owners, professionals and allied groups working to raise awareness and increase understanding about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and related pesticides in our community.
We commit to a grassroots effort that encourages informed, nourishing and safe food choices.
GMO Free Begins with Me!
In light of the increasing scientific evidence exposing the health risks associated with the use of toxic chemicals used in food production, as well as increasing use of agricultural pesticides, GMO-Free Prescott has chosen to include these issues in its education efforts.
The Alarming Truths about Genetically Modified Foods - video
A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms. This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.
Avoiding GMOs can be easy. Learning the 8 commercially available genetically modified foods is the first step!
