One of the great things about taking back control of your personal food supply with an aquaponics system of any size ios that you can select the types of seeds that you grow. Heirloom seeds are one way to avoid the potential problems that can arise from eating GMO vegetable products. This is a great post on where heirloom seeds are available on the web with a huge listing of suppliers from around the world. Natural Cures Not Medicine suggests:

I am truly impressed at the extent of this resource. It offers all of us a chance to change the source of the foods we eat from unknown and possibly GMO origins into heritage vegetables that have not been genetically tinkered with “for our own good” but more probably for massive profits for Monsanto.
Heirloom Seeds from All Countries
The list is quite long and extensive, providing us with the country where the website is located. This is important because some of the seeds may not be available for import into some countries due to legal restrictions. Hopefully you can find a useful website that can provide you exactly the seeds you want to grow for the vegetables you want to eat. Since heritage seeds are not going to be exposed to many of the pests and other problems found in standard gardens, there is no need to buy into the argument that GMO are more resistant to the various problems found in the farmer’s fields.
There are too many potential poisons in our present food supply, so getting heirloom seeds and using them to supplement your diet is a small way to reduce them and improve your diet at the same time.
