Digestive issues typically improve when GMO’s are removed from the diet, but nonetheless GM foods can negatively affect digestion which is key to the body’s overall health.
“An astonishing 85% of respondents reported improvements in their ‘digestive problems,’ the ailment most commonly cited. Of these respondents, 80% said their digestive issues were ‘significantly improved’, ‘nearly gone’, or ‘completely recovered’.” – Jeffrey M. Smith
New research from the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine shines light onto the health benefits associated with changing to a non-GMO diet. The survey accounts for 3,256 people who have seen major improvements with 28 different health conditions. If you’ve ever wondered about whether switching to an organic diet would be worth it, maybe these new findings will give you the answer you’ve been looking for.
28 Conditions Reversed with Non-GMO Diet
After analyzing the data, it becomes evident that the research is consistent with reports by physicians in regard to improving patients’ health by switching to largely non-GMO and organic diets. A few of the most common conditions which typically see improvement are digestive issues like leaky gut, fatigue, and obesity.
However, this new study has shown that many more common ailments can be improved by a switch of the diet away from genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).
A complete list of conditions which were reversed or severely reduced by switching to non-GMO and their recovery rates:
– Digestive (85.2%)
– Fatigue, low energy (60.4%)
– Overweight or obesity (54.6%)
– Clouding of consciousness, “brain fog” (51.7%)
– Food allergies or sensitivities (50.2%)
