You want to be healthy, so you choose foods which will contribute to that feeling of health. This means you’re concentrating on fruits and vegetables, right? Are you also checking these fruits and vegetables to see whether they’re genetically modified or not?
Being healthy means avoiding the potentially toxic chemicals and biologically modified ingredients or products offered by modern day food and agriculture conglomerates. It means consuming fruits and vegetables known as non-GMO. Healthy foods are not going to be produced using GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in any way.
When shopping at a supermarket, you can ensure you’re getting non-GMO fruits and vegetables by taking a look at the label to see if the number 9 appears. This code number means that the particular fruit or vegetable you’re looking at is organic. Organic foods are never produced using GMOs. On packaged foods you can also look for the Non GMO Project Verified label. Only foods which meet their stringent requirements are allowed to use their label.
By keeping your diet consistently non-GMO, you avoid the consumption of food and ingredients that can cause anything from general sickness to full blown cancer. You’ll be healthier, and you’ll feel healthy by concentrating on a diet free of GMOs, especially if you’re using some conventionally produced items such as deodorant, plastic storage bags, sunscreen, makeup, or even the tap water in most locales.
Aside from simply feeling healthy, there are other benefits to a diet using non-GMO fruits and vegetables.
- your food will not be exposed to the antibiotics, growth hormones, or toxic chemicals which could find their way into your body
- you’ll be consuming fresher, more nutrient rich food because the lack of chemical preservatives will be allowing the food to age the way nature intended
- you will be doing your part in the preservation of our environment because you will be doing your part in limiting its exposure to toxic and unnatural chemicals
Consuming non-GMO foods allows you to live your life in a healthy manner and to feel like a healthy person. By sticking to using non-GMO foods, you’ll be living your life so that you can avoid exposing yourself to toxic chemicals and ingredients that could drag you down into daily malaise or long-term illness. Eating non-GMO fruits and vegetables is definitely a major way to feel good everyday and maintain your healthy lifestyle for the years to come.
