Should you be concerned? Health professionals have seen a spike in food allergies, sensitivities, autoimmune disorders, cancer and tumors. A recent article from Organic Authority cited Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest health care provider, warning about the dangers of GMO’s including organ damage and reproductive issues.
Companies are not required to label that they use GMO in their products. A recent proposition to require labeling did not pass. It was heavily opposed by companies that you may be very familiar with.
Many of the pet foods on the market today are owned by these companies that oppose disclosure of their ingredient source as GMO. Ask yourself these questions:
- “Why don’t they want to label accordingly?”
- “If these companies do not want to label about GMO’s on people food, what are they doing to my pets food?”
- “Do they really have my pets health in mind when making their products?”
What companies should you be concerned about? Here is a partial list:
Nestle - Known for making candy
Heinz/ Del Monte - makers of ketchup and canned vegetables
Kibble n Bits
Mars - Another company known for their candy
Proctor & Gamble - known for toiletries and household items
Colgate - Palmolive - Toothpaste and dish soap
