GMO produce, including tomatoes, are bad for your overall health so if you want to have optimal health and avoid any health complications you should never, ever consume GMO produce. You might think what’s the big deal, the entire world has them on the market and everyone eats them but you’re mistaken, they can have detrimental effects on your health.
How to tell if the tomatoes you’re buying are GMO?
If you find yourself at the market or in your local store trying to buy some veggies or fruit be careful and mind the labels on the things you buy. Every produce has a label which shows the way they were grown. If their label has 4 digits it means the fruits and veggies were grown the standard way, without injections. Organic fruits and vegetables have labels with 5 digits starting with the number 9 so these you can consume freely, while the GMO foods also have labels with 5 digits but theirs start with the number 8, so mind the difference. This information can be vital because nearly 80% of all fresh produce in USA is GMO.
Europe is slowly starting to ban GMO foods starting with Hungary, Germany, Greece and Luxembourg but there are still countries that allow them.
