You are what you eat.
While this is certainly not a new idea, a recent study in cell research shows that “what you eat” doesn’t simply refer to the carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals that are in your food–> it also refers to the “information” (or DNA) of that food.
So, when we consume genetically-modified foods, what exactly does that do to us?
It alters our organ function and may affect fertility, according to this study.

According to this report, “The more genetically-modified foods you consume, the less human you become.”
What I found especially shocking, was the information about Bt-corn–> a corn that is genetically-modified to produce an insecticide as it grows! When insects eat this corn, they die… which encourages other insects to avoid it.
(And then we’re supposed to eat that same corn?!)
Unless you select a corn product that is specifically labeled “non-GMO” or “certified organic” (including corn-based breakfast cereals, tortillas, pet food, etc.), there’s a good chance that Bt-corn was used to make it.
Let’s consider this even MORE reason to choose whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible.
Reader Feedback: Do you make an effort to avoid GMO foods? Are you surprised by how much they can affect organ function? While I shouldn’t be surprised, I still found this study pretty shocking! Especially by the fact that a certain “big company” didn’t even think it was necessary for the FDA to test the safety of genetically-modified foods…
