When I lived, studied and worked overseas, I noticed the rate of overweight people in Europe and Russia is MUCH LOWER than in the US. Why? I believe it is largely because the European Union BANS cultivation of genetically modified organism (GMO) crops which are NOT grown with pesticides, such as the glyphosate in Monsanto’s Round Up glyphosate, which ensures that food is organic and healthy.
In contrast, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), allows farmers to grow food with Monsanto’s Round Up and other pesticides. The glyphosate infiltrates every aspect of the American food industry – vegetables, meat, grains, eggs so that Americans are becoming more toxic and overweight. How can Americans beat this epidemic of weight gain?
Here are a few reasons to eat ORGANIC, non-GMO food
- Organic food is more nutritious and tastes delicious. It is richer in nutrients and antioxidants, which fuels your immune system so it functions optimally.
- Eating organic helps reduce your body’s total toxic burden so that you do not STORE pesticides, such as glyphosate, which slows down your metabolism.
- Organic foods are NOT genetically engineered which alters crops to make them weather- and pest-resistant. Over 80% of corn, soybeans, canola & sugar beets are GMO
