What are the Health Implications of Consuming GMO's?

Do you wonder if GMO foods are really that bad? They are and they are more and more of an increasing problem, especially here in America.

So many foods now are genetically modified and these have major, major health implications. I’m going to show you today how to recognize these, how to avoid them, and how to repair the damage that they cause in your body.

The Most Common Genetically Modified Foods

First, you want to know where the stuff is coming from. Here’s a list of the most common genetically modified foods from top to bottom.

  • Soy
  • Corn
  • Cotton seed oil
  • Canola oil
  • Papaya
  • Alfalfa
  • Sugar beets
  • Milk
  • Aspartame

The problem is these ingredients are in everything, especially processed foods. So what you want to make sure of all the time is that you’re looking for non-GMO verified for all of these foods.

So every single food you consume, every supplement, every additive, you want to make sure that it’s non-GMO because these genetically modified foods are causing lots of damage in the body. In fact, there are multiple peer reviewed studies showing now that GMO’s are linked to things like tumors, kidney and liver damage and other serious illnesses even causing death in some cases.

GMO contamination is so, so common in today’s modern American diet. First you want to be able to recognize where it’s coming from. Make sure that all your foods, all your kids foods are non-GMO.

Always look non-GMO Project labels on the products you buy. You want to start avoiding the GMO products at all costs.

Why Are GMO Foods So Bad?

The reason why GMO foods are such a big issue is these GMO’s have very, very high amounts of what’s called glyphosate. The genetically modified organism means that the seed or the plant that grows these different foods is allowed to have high amounts of roundup pesticide, which is full of glyphosate.

Glyphosate is a major neurotoxin, which is why it causes so many problems. It damages the brain, damages the nervous system, and especially damages your digestive system.

What this does is it creates holes in your digestive lining. Something you may know as leaky gut.

This is a relatively newly recognized issue because now so many people are having such high exposure to these genetically modified foods. When you take in the glyphosate from these toxic foods, it actually rips holes in your digestive lining and it allows massive amounts of inflammation and lets things get into your body causing food intolerance, immune system issues, auto-immune disorders, and the list goes on and on and on.

So know that when you consume these glyphosates, it’s actually damaging your digestive system and creating leaky gut issues that will lead to a complete array of digestive problems.
