Growing GMO Free Herbs & Vegetables in South Africa
Commercial food-like products are full of GMO’s nowadays, especially in South Africa where over 80% of maize, our staple crop, has been genetically modified or contaminated by chemical companies like Monsanto (according to activist group – NO GMO South Africa)
Growing your own fresh food is not as hard as you may imagine. Everyday, people just like you are starting to grow their own food in various ways including soil and hydroponics amongst other methods.
Its been made publicly known that GMO foods are having serious effects on the end consumers. Mutations and other deformities amongst humans are just the start of this wave of terror on our society. Countries such as France, Austria have banned cultivation and sale of GMO foods completely while others are starting to enforce strict GMO labelling laws.
We need to raise awareness as to the destructive & irreversible impact that genetically modified organisms have on our communities, our health and our environment.
