Is Genetically Modified Food Nutritionally Compromised?
The short answer is, we don’t really know.
We are aware of a genetically modified “golden rice” that has supposedly been modified to contain super high doses of vitamin A. That might sound like a great thing, but we don’t know whether or not there are any downsides to this modification?
We also know that most GMO food is not being modified to be more nutritious; instead 90% of the GMOs in rotation are engineered to be herbicide resistant. GMO crops are directly linked to the herbicide glyphosate, which has been linked to numerous health issues.
If you are familiar with the tenets of Clean Cuisine, as outlined in our book (see photo, left), then you know we are all about reducing inflammation and maximizing nutrition. Instead of encouraging people to “count their food” in the form of calories, carbs, fat grams, etc. we have always encouraged people to make their food count nutritionally. We have been preaching the same basic “make your food count” concept for over a decade, ever since the release of our first book, The Gold Coast Cure (HCI, 2005). And in the past, eating the most nutrient-dense food was as simple as choosing foods in their most natural, unprocessed state. We used to always use the example of choosing corn instead of corn flakes.
Unfortunately, GMO’s have complicated what was once a simple, straightforward message….
