GMO- genetic modified foods are causing a bit of a stir in the food industry as well as those of us who are “in to” whole food.
After attending a class on nutrient density and the problem with GMO, I was shocked! Did you know that our food has changed more in the last fifty years than it has in 10,000 years!!! Shocking but true!
In 1960 we could eat an apple a day and keep the doctor away but TODAY we would need to eat 8 apples (unless it was an organic apple) to equal the same nutrient density! I guess we better start munching!!!!
The goal of GMO is to make a larger (weighs more) prettier more appealing food and often the nutrient density of the food is compromised.
GMO does not even have to be on the label. The only food right now that we can be sure does not have GMO is organic food.
GMO is creeping in more and more food… we need to be asking more questions about our food and how we can bet more nutrient density in our diets.
