Carson City, NV – October 25, 2017 – These days, more people are growing heirloom vegetables not just for the delicious produce but for the health benefits as well. Compared to other types of seeds, heirlooms are renowned for having the most nutritious crops because of their all-natural qualities. Being non-gmo by nature, heirloom vegetable seeds are the healthiest option for gardeners who care about the quality and safety of the food they grow.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are one of the driving factors behind the revival of home vegetable gardening, particularly among millennials who known to be particular about their health. Many young people are now picking up the hobby but those who are not careful can easily grow GMOs without their knowledge—especially since even GMO seeds are widely available nowadays.
“GMOs have been altered with DNA from other organisms so they can develop resistance to pests and diseases and also come in consistent shapes and sizes. In my opinion, this practice is advantageous for mass production but dangerous to long-term health as previous studies have pointed out. Because GMOs pose several health risks, many people are shying away from these products and prefer to grow their own food instead,” said a representative from Home and Garden America, a Nevada-based company with years of expertise in heirloom gardening.
For health-conscious gardeners, the only way to be sure is to plant heirloom vegetable seeds. Heirlooms are completely natural and have existed for centuries without going through genetic modifications. They were carefully saved and handed down from generation to generation, keeping their original traits intact.
“Thanks to the preservation efforts of our forefathers, we can still take pleasure in the delicious flavors of heirloom crops today. Passing on the seeds from family to family, heirlooms were fortunately not affected by the rise of hybrid crops in the 1920s and the start of GMO production in the 1980s. Throughout the decades, heirlooms have stayed just the way they were. They are as natural as they can get, that’s why they’re ideal for daily consumption,” the HAGA representative remarked.
Praised for their amazing taste, fascinating colors, unique shapes and exciting varieties, heirloom vegetables promise a world of flavors that simply cannot be found in store-bought produce. And what’s even better is that they’re fresher and far more nutritious.
“In a race for the best taste and nutrition, GMOs just don’t stand a chance against heirlooms. When you choose heirlooms, you never have to worry about chemicals, pesticides or genetically modified organisms lurking in your food. Instead, you can focus on enjoying the meals made from your fresh, homegrown produce,” the representative further added.
