Resolve to Focus on What Matters Most About Your Health (It’s Not GMOs)

Resolve to Focus on What Matters Most About Your Health (It’s Not GMOs)

At this time of year, you see lots of stories about making New Year’s resolutions: losing weight, improving one’s health, and just generally making changes in one’s life.

Whether people can stick with these resolutions is debatable, but one thing that IS true is that there are a lot people putting trendy health claims out there to take advantage of this “New Year, New You” trend that happens every January.

One trend that you DON’T have to worry about is avoiding GMOs. GMOs are just as safe, healthy, and nutritious as any other food that you eat. Sometimes even MORE nutritious!

In a new blog post for GMO Answers, Registered Dietitian Amber Pankonin tells us what you SHOULD focus on, instead of fad diets, scare tactics and just plain woo, in order to have a healthier 2018.

  1. Read the ingredients.
  2. Consider your portion size and cooking method.
  3. Balance your plate.
  4. Know your numbers.

It’s that simple. Follow these steps and you can accomplish those goals.  So, instead of jumping on the latest fad diet or resolving to give up GMOs in 2018, focus on what matters most about your health. We should let science be our guide and not fear-based marketing.
