​Free at Last: What You Need to Know About GMO

It’s impossible to shop in a natural food store or even the local grocery store without seeing the acronym “GMO.” Genetically Modified Organisms are plant or meat products that have had their DNA artificially altered at the gene level in a laboratory.
 
There is a growing concern about the safety of these genetically altered foods and their health implications. Many scientists and healthcare professionals have speculated that these foods can trigger allergic reactions, lead to antibiotic resistance and cause various diseases.
 
In addition to food, GMOs can also be found in personal care products. Many common ingredients in beauty products come from agricultural sources which have been genetically altered. To avoid GMOs, preservatives, fragrances and any other unwanted ingredients in your products, it is important to research and read labels.
 
Our skin is our largest organ, and we need to protect it by using products that are safe and effective, especially when our immune system is compromised. Look for products with certified labels such as “GMO-free” and “100% organic” to ensure you’re putting the best ingredients on your skin. Whether you are cleaning, moisturizing or relieving pain, your skin will soak up whatever you put on it.
