Herbal Papaya is committed to providing premium quality products from non GMO ingredients. Our products are USDA certified Organic and Non-GMO Project verified.
Top 5 Reasons Herbal Papaya Is Committed To The Non-Gmo Movement:
1. People Have a Right to Know
We chose to get our products Non-GMO Project Verified because we respect our customers’ right to know what is in their food. The idea of mandatory GMO labeling has been pushed by organic farmers and certain environmental groups in the United States for years. Many of these organizations have argued that the safety of GMOs is uncertain, and that genetically modified foods could pose a risk to the environment and to the health of consumers. We believe people have a right to know that the food they are eating and feeding their loved ones has been verified under the industry’s best practices for GMO avoidance. This verification offers the highest transparency about GMOs; which is why at Herbal Papaya, we consider this verification process as important and necessary.
2. GMOs Have Not Been Proven Safe
Scientists and consumer and environmental groups have cited many health and environmental risks with foods containing GMOs. Contrary to industry claims, GMOs have never been properly tested for human safety. Until an ingredient is proven to be 100% safe we do not feel good providing it to our customers.
3. GMOs Raise Health Concerns
GMOs are engineered with bacteria and viruses to produce insecticides and survive heavy doses of herbicides. Other unintended changes in food composition can occur during genetic improvement by traditional breeding and/or gene technology. This is not healthy for us OR the environment! With GMOs now present in more than 80% of conventional processed food, choosing Non-GMO Project Verified products is the most reliable way for your family to avoid GMOs.
4. Harm On The Environment
Herbal Papaya Supports Mother Earth and the Non GMO Just Label It Act
There will always be unknown long term effects to the ecosystem and biodiversity when inducing change in the natural traits of crops through unnatural means. Many worry that the pollen of genetically modified foods could have unintended consequences for animals that interact with the crops, such as monarch butterflies.
5. Other Countries Do Not Trust GMOs
In more than 60 countries around the world, including all of the countries in the European Union, there are restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
At Herbal Papaya we believe Mother Earth has provided us with everything we need to make our food healthy. We respect our customer’s right to know the components of their food and encourage them to keep going for Non-GMO foods. Manufacturers like us should be required to properly label products so consumers can make their choice of healthy foods.
