Do you love food? I sure do. Which is why I want to be an informed consumer and want you to be one too.
It is said that food can either be the most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
That’s why I embrace whole foods like vegetables, fruits and whole grains, plus healthy proteins and fats. I also I advocate crowding out processed foods with healthy whole foods.
I suggest to my clients that they crowd out processed food because most of the processed foods in the US are made with genetically modified organisms.
In case you are unfamiliar with GMO’s, they are organisms made by forcing genes from one species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals or humans, into the DNA of a food crop or animal to introduce a new trait. Sounds creepy doesn’t it?
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine reported, several animal studies showed serious health risks associated with genetically modified food including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. (Ever wonder why so many people have gastroesophageal reflux disease?)
So I encourage you to be an informed consumer and take a look at the Non-GMO Shopping Guide that you can download by clicking here.
I hope you find it helpful.
