GMO FOOD SUPPLY: The Hidden Epidemic Destroying Your Gut Flora

 
 

MOST MAJOR US FOOD CROPS ARE NOW GENETICALLY ENGINEERED!

Many still don't realize just how much of our food supply has been genetically engineered (GE). As of this year, 93 percent of soybeans grown in the US are genetically engineered, as are:

  • 86 percent of all corn
  • 93 percent of canola
