Genetically engineered food ingredients are found in up to 75% of all packaged food products according to the Center for Food Safety, and that’s a problem considering that these crops are widely sprayed with toxic, potentially carcinogenic pesticides or engineered in a laboratory to produce its own pesticides within the plant.
Avoiding GMO foods and buying organic as much as possible can create incredible health outcomes in those who give this way of life a try.
Recently, a group of mothers broke the silence on how switching to a non-GMO diet healed their children of everything from autism to autoimmune disease, asthma, diabetes, allergies and more.
The good news is that eating an organic, non-GMO diet can be incredibly healing.
The bad news is that this information is widely suppressed or ignored in the mainstream media, which is just part of why it’s so important to know exactly what you’re eating before ringing those purchases up at the grocery store.
Naturopathic Doctor Shares: Avoid These Seven GMO Foods
Last year, we released our list of the Top 15 GMO Foods to Recognize and Avoid whenever possible.
The list includes several foods that are not labeled as being GMO, even though they are commonly and widely sold in grocery and other stores across the country.
Recently, Dr. Eric Berg, a naturopathic doctor based out of Alexandria Virginia, released his own list of the top GMO foods to avoid.
His list is as follows:
1. Yellow squash
5. Green zucchini
6. Certain apples (learn more in this article)
7. Salmon (unless labeled as “wild-caught”)
As noted earlier, this is just a partial list, as the full list of GMO foods grows with each passing year.
Why It’s So Important to Avoid GMOs and Eat Organic Whenever Possible
While government agencies state that GMOs are “safe,” there’s a big difference between so-called “safe” food and food that helps a human being to thrive mentally, physically and emotionally.
In addition, the alleged safety of GMOs has long been called into question by health and consumer advocates such as GMO Free USA, a nonprofit that released a first-of-its-kind, searchable list of safety studies showing instances of harm and safety risks for both these lab engineered crops and their associated chemicals.
The full list of studies can be viewed on the website GMOResearch.org.
