Avoid GMOs with 4 Simple Tips

Have you noticed that food labels on grocery store shelves look different lately?

As of January 1st of this year, the USDA required food manufacturers to identify genetically modified (GMO) foods.

Of course, we know the USDA isn’t doing this because they’re concerned for your health!

Congress only passed the new labeling law after certain states began to demand it. In order to avoid a regulatory nightmare, the government jumped in at the 11th hour with a federal labeling standard.

But, the USDA went even further to protect their friends at Big Agra… Nowhere on the label are the words “genetically modified organism.”

Instead, food companies are allowed to call these foods “bioengineered.” And there is a positive image of a green field with crops growing under a bright sun.

They’re hoping you won’t notice these happy-looking logos are really GMO labels.

It’s like they want you to think that these “Frankenfoods” are healthy, natural, and safe. But if you ask me, the GMO logo should look more like a skull and crossbones.

It couldn’t be any more evident that Big Agra has the government in their pocket…

You see, food companies hire armies of lobbyists. And they put more money into political campaigns than any other industry except pharmaceutical companies — more than Big Tech, Big Oil, and Big Medicine.

No wonder the USDA’s in their pocket. The government is happy to promote GMOs as long as the food industry’s money keeps rolling in.

GMO foods have never been proven safe. In fact, they’re toxic.

Pesticide companies developed GMOs by altering DNA in plants so they can handle massive levels of their toxins. Now farms are pretty much forced to drench plants with more and more of these deadly chemicals.

GMO corn can have 18 times the EPA’s safe limit for glyphosate, the active herbicide in Monsanto’s Roundup.1

Studies show that up to 70% of animals fed GMO corn with Roundup died much earlier than other animals. They also developed 2 to 3 times larger tumors.2

But that’s not all…

Your body doesn’t recognize GMOs as food.

It thinks they’re foreign invaders — and they are. The body launches an inflammatory response that causes hives, rashes, swelling, headaches, and digestive problems.

And human studies show GMO apples cause allergies.3 Animal research proves GMO soy and corn cause stomach inflammation and fertility problems.4 It could also cause depression, fatigue, infections, brain fog, and nausea.

We didn’t evolve to eat GMOs — we evolved to eat natural, unprocessed foods. But today’s supermarkets are a minefield of these genetically altered foods.

More than 80% of our food supply contains GMOs. Most corn, soy, sugar beets, and canola crops grown in the U.S. are GMO.

The industry-controlled government has corrupted our food. And as long as it keeps lining their pockets, that won’t change anytime soon. This is why I help my patients avoid these modern food threats and eat the way nature intended.

    1. Choose organic foods when possible. By law, a food labeled “USDA Organic” cannot contain GMOs. And, of course, avoid processed foods as much as you can.
    2. Check the Price Look-Up (PLU) stickers for fresh fruits and vegetables. Conventional produce has a 4-digit code. Organic non-GMO produce has a 5-digit code starting with the number 9.
    3. Get to know your local farmer. It’s important to buy from producers committed to natural and non-GMO farming methods. Eating locally is a great way to get the freshest organic, non-GMO foods.
    4. Scrub your produce with a solution of vinegar and water. I like to combine 1-part white distilled vinegar to 4-parts water and add the juice of half a lemon to a spray bottle. Rinse and scrub all the dirt from your produce, spray it with the vinegar solution, and rinse again.
