The rates of illnesses like type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, Crohn's Disease (inflammatory bowel syndrome), and chronic fatigue syndrome have risen astronomically over the last few decades in all industrial nations. There is a growing body of scientific research that proves that the #1 reason for this disease epidemic is how our diets have changed. Quite simply, food is killing us!
Modern food is very different than what humans ate just 100 years ago. Much of our food today is industrially produced, chemically modified, and contains artificial ingredients. However, no change in our food supply in the last 100 years has been more profound than manipulation of the genetic code of the crops we eat.
These "genetically modified foods," also known as "GMO foods," are one of the big culprits causing this surge in disease. The inclusion of GMO foods in our food supply in fact is one of the reasons we've seen an even bigger surge in disease over the last 20-30 years. We are clearly headed down a dangerous path with our food supply.
There is a growing movement to educate people about this problem. I am personally part of that movement as I strongly believe that changing your diet can not only prevent disease but can also reverse it! I have reversed my type 2 diabetes and other ailments by changing the way I eat so I have very personal and intimate knowledge of how much changing your diet can improve your health. I've also studied this topic in depth.
