Genetically modified organisms
Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are some of the most talked-about substances in the world of nutrition today. GMO foods have been subjected to genetic altering. As odd as it may sound, crops like strawberries and tomatoes are sometimes injected with fish genes in order to make them more resistant to pests, poor weather, and herbicides. Believe it or not, corn is sometimes even altered with jellyfish DNA! Although many studies have suggested that GMO foods are often dangerous, the United States Food and Drug Administration has yet to outlaw them.
What makes GMO foods unhealthy?
Corn, canola, soy, cottonseed, and sugar beets are some of the most common GMO crops today. Consuming these foods is shown to lead to a number of health problems. Essentially, the process of modifying genes creates new types of proteins to which the human body has never been exposed. In many cases, the body simply considers these new proteins foreign invaders and initiates an immune response. This often leads to severe inflammation, which can result in a plethora of illnesses.
GMO foods are linked to allergies
One often notices an increase in allergies in areas of the world where GMOs are still legal. Although this increase is often observed in the general population, studies show that farm workers who come into contact with GMO foods everyday are much more likely to suffer from serious allergic reactions.
GMOs can affect one’s digestion
Although there is a surprising lack of research regarding the effects of GMOs on the human body, these substances are shown to interrupt the digestive process, which is a huge cause for concern. Specifically, GMOs can sometimes become absorbed into the bacteria that live in the intestines. This could ultimately cause proteins that the human body may not recognize as food to linger in the gut indefinitely.
The shocking conclusions of some animal studies
In several well-documented studies, GMOs are shown to cause the following complications in animals:
• Immune deficiency
• Low birth weight
• Faulty insulin regulation
• Organ damage
• Accelerated aging
• Changes in major organ systems
• Interruptions in the gastrointestinal system
GMOs and autoimmune Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism
According to Dr. Joni Labbe, several recent studies have confirmed that individuals who are living with autoimmune Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism should avoid eating GMO foods such as corn, soy, cotton seed, and canola products. Because a person with Hashimoto’s is already prone to severe autoimmune flare-ups, GMOs a leading cause of inflammation in the body can easily add fuel to the fire. When a person with this condition eats a diet that is high in GMOs, it is nearly impossible to properly manage thyroid function.
The anxiety epidemic in America
As Dr. Joni Labbe points out, severe anxiety is quickly becoming more prevalent among Americans today. In fact, anti-anxiety medications are now some of the most frequently prescribed drugs in this country.
The causes of chronic anxiety
Chronic anxiety has a variety of causes. In some cases, individuals develop anxiety disorders as a result of using stimulants such as energy drinks, caffeine, weight loss pills, or energy-inducing supplements. In addition, certain emotional or psychological factors can lead to severe anxiety, such as the fear of public speaking or taking a test.
Unexpected origins of anxiety
Although circumstantial stress is often a leading contributing factor of anxiety, this condition can also have a number of unexpected causes. In fact, properly diagnosing the source of one’s stress can often prove a very complex process. With this in mind, Dr. Labbe recommends that all individuals who are suffering from anxiety thoroughly investigate every possible source of their problem. One test is called an Adrenal Stress Index test, a saliva test that will give the cortisol (stress hormone) readings, and how they fluctuate from morning to night.
The effects of gluten on anxiety
Although it may sound hard to believe at first, gluten is shown to lead to severe anxiety. When ingested, this substance can easily cause one’s autoimmune system to attack brain tissue, which can trigger anxiety attacks. In light of this knowledge, any individual who suffers from chronic anxiety should consider eating a gluten-free, anti-inflammatory diet.
Regulating your blood sugar can curb anxiety
Blood sugar imbalance is not only linked to anxiety but to a large number of other health concerns as well. When you eat too many carbohydrates, such as breads, pastas, cereals, and foods that contain processed sugar, your insulin levels will quickly rise and fall, which can affect your mood and your overall health. According to Dr. Labbe, the best way to avoid blood sugar spikes is to eat a lower-carb diet consisting of the correct amounts of proteins and healthy fats.
Unexpected causes of chronic pain
Although chronic pain sometimes occurs as a result of degenerative illnesses or physical injuries, it is often frequently caused by inflammation. With this in mind, it is very important for individuals who are suffering from this kind of pain to stick to an anti-inflammatory diet. Dr. Labbe recommends avoiding foods like eggplant, potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes.

The future of GMO foods in America
Although more and more studies are concluding that GMO foods can lead to many health concerns, they are still legal in the United States. Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell how much longer the Food and Drug Administration will allow farmers to continue raising GMO crops. However, as public awareness increases, rules and regulations regarding this issue are expected to change.
