In this short video, we’re going to talk about GMOs (genetically modified organisms). What is GMO? GMO (genetically modified organisms) is where they take a gene from one species like a fish and insert it into another species like a soy plant to alter the mechanics of what that plant can do. Companies that do this really want to create a Roundup Ready plant. This means the plant will be resistant to Roundup Ready, which is an herbicide. Foods that are mostly genetically modified: • Soy • Corn • Canola • Cottonseed • Salmon (unless it’s organic) If a soybean, for example, is resistant to a pesticide, you can spray the pesticide or herbicide on the plant, and the weeds around it will die, but the plant will not. However, you’re still getting the chemical in your body, and the liver can’t detoxify it. 95% of the GMO sold in the United States is being fed to animals—it’s in animal feeds. It goes through the animals and straight to you. What you can do: 1. Consume organic foods (especially chicken, eggs, and cheese) 2. Consume cruciferous foods on a daily basis Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio: Dr. Berg, 50 years of age is a chiropractor who specializes in weight loss through nutritional and natural methods.
