Genetically Modified Foods Cause Concern
Genetically modified foods have saturated supermarket shelves.  About 80 percent of processed foods in stores today contain ingredients created through complex laboratory methods, resulting in foods that would never be found in Nature.  While it might seem that such a widespread shift in the food system would have been properly tested for safety, here's the shocking truth:  Although a cornerstone of the American food supply for only about 15 years, genetically modified foods, also called GMOs, have never undergone vigorous independent testing to assess their potential impact on human health. In fact, some early data suggests they are making us sick: GMOs have been linked to skyrocketing allergy rates, accelerated aging, digestive diseases, and organ damage.
Considering the potential health effects of GMOs in the food supply, the American Medical Association (AMA)—the nation's leading physicians' group—last week called for mandatory GMO safety assessments before GMO-containing foods are put in grocery stores.  The physicians also took on another hot GMO topic—mandatory labeling on food packaging.  Currently, food manufacturers don't have to disclose GMO ingredients, making it hard for many consumers to avoid them. (GMOs are, however, banned in organic foods.)
If you want to avoid GMOs before labeling and safety testing goes into effect, check the labels for organic certification or buy foods verified by the Non-GMO Project. If you can't find organic options and want to keep GMOs out of your diet, avoid processed foods. Many contain corn- and soy-derived ingredients, and in America, more than 90 percent of those crops are grown using genetically engineered seeds.
Dr. Iverson's Comment
All the sense is summed up in the first paragraph: the majority of the foods today would never be found in Nature.    With that said our cells are not familiar with the DNA formations that are being presented in these genetically modified foods.   We do not know what the long term effect could be particularly on immune responses resulting in increased rates of allergies, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Follow Nature’s Diet to the best of your ability so you are able to reduce your intake of such potential harmful substances.
