My patients trust me with their lives.
But if I ever handed them supplements without letting them check out the ingredients… they’d run straight for the door.
And I’m guessing you would, too.
But right now, some of the largest companies on the planet are working with policy makers to prevent you from knowing what you’re putting in your body.
In fact, they’re using us all as guinea pigs while they take in billions in profit.
In the US for instance, a bill called the Safe and Accurate Labelling Act is in the process of being approved. It will prevent mandatory labelling of genetically modified (GMO) foods.
Needless to say, the food industry and major biotech firms like Monsanto are lining up to influence policy makers to get the bill passed. Even though GMO’s are strictly regulated in the UK and Europe, once these Frankenfoods enter our food supply there is no way of telling where they will crop up.
My patients ask me all the time about GMOs and whether they’re safe. And the truth is, nobody knows for sure — and until we know, we’re all being experimented on.
The effects of GMOs have never been studied on humans, but animal studies have shown they cause everything from low sperm counts to cancer and organ damage. The World Health Organization (WHO) even recently declared that Roundup, an herbicide commonly used to grow GMO crops, probably causes cancer.
The fact that the major food companies don’t want you to know which foods are GMO should tell you everything you need to know.
While major food companies will do anything to prevent mandatory GMO labelling, there are organizations like the Non-GMO Project that will help you find products that are GMO-free.
Wishing you the best of health,
