Natural v/s Conventional Vegetables (Nutrient Value Comparison)

Iron deficiency anemia occurs when your body doesn't have enough iron to produce hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the part of red blood cells that gives blood its red color and enables the red blood cells to carry oxygenated blood throughout your body. If you aren't consuming enough iron, or if you're losing too much iron, your body can't produce enough hemoglobin, and iron deficiency anemia will eventually develop.

India For Safe Food - No Chemicals, No Genetic Modification!

The process of taking a gene from one organism and inserting it into the genome of another unrelated organism to give it certain new traits is called Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM). Genes can be found in the nucleus of every cell in all living organisms and are the very building blocks of life. They decide the characteristics, structure, growth and behaviour of all organisms, including us. They play the critical role of passing on genetic information from one generation to the other.
