The 9 Worst GMO Foods
With the new year, for many of us, comes plans to live a healthier lifestyle. A great deal of us will seek to exercise and change our diets.
I probably spend more time reading labels at the grocery store than I do anything else. Why? Why would I care what goes into my body? For one thing I have extreme allergies. I also have gluten sensitivities, GERD, respiratory problems, and earlier last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Another important factor is that it is no secret that today's food picks in the grocery store have been compromised in some way with either additives, preservatives or the are genetically modified (GMO) in some way.
Even though I've read labels that say GF or “all natural,” I've found that many of these supposedly organic foods have made me just as ill or even sicker than the foods with labels that have clearly written they have preservatives or additives.
Recently I watched a program on TV regarding grains. Against the Grain. The doctors on this program shared how the grains that were once good for us and among the largest food group in our daily diet, have now become poison to our bodies. They explained that nearly all grains manufactured in the store today are GMO’s—genetically modified. Even the rice flour, potato starch, and the other gluten free flours I have used for months are proven to be a health risk and raise blood sugar levels. The doctors also stated that these foods are laced with inhibitors to make us want to eat more, even after we’re full. Many of these products also cause us to crave sugar.
Since I started eating gluten-free and even baking my own breads, my blood glucose level went from normal to borderline diabetic.
So this week, I began a test in my own body—I’m going grain-free. I've stopped all bread products, even gluten-free. The first three days I’ve had excruciating migraine headaches. Research has led me to discover that this is part of the detoxification process for my body. Symptoms can last from three days to two weeks. I’ll keep you posted on my journey.
But since grains aren’t the only GMO products on the store shelves, Aside from SOY and WHEAT, I've listed the nine worst GMO foods below.
"Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." -Matthew 4:4 (NIV)
