What is a GMO?
They’re the result of a laboratory process that inserts genes from one species into the genes of another to obtain a desired trait or characteristic (e.g., fast-growing salmon) and there is considerable evidence that genetically modified foods are not safe. Thousands of physicians prescribe non-GMO diets, and many describe significant, even dramatic alleviation of symptoms such as gastrointestinal, immune, reproductive, and weight issues. Similar problems afflict lab animals fed GMOs and clear up in livestock and pets taken off GMO feed. We don’t think it’s a coincidence that the incidence of these disorders increased in parallel with the introduction and expansion of GMOs in the US. Furthermore, the two primary toxins found in GMO foods—Roundup and Bt-toxin—have characteristics that would predispose us to these types of conditions.

If you have kids, take note of their attention spans. See what positive changes you notice by being on a non-GMO diet, and go from there.”
