Want to get healthier this year? Start with these six easy steps:
1. Eat the rainbow.
Make a commitment to eat an array of fruits and vegetables that span the colors of the rainbow on a daily basis. The synergy of all of those antioxidants, phytonutrients, and fiber is incredibly health-giving. Aim for 7 servings of vegetables every day and 3 servings of fruit.
2. Just say NO to GMO foods.
A 2012 study out of France confirmed the dangers of GMO food consumption. Rats were fed genetically modified corn chow on a daily basis for two years and the results included an exponential increase in mammary tumors, kidney failture and liver necrosis in the rats who ate GMO food compared to their control counterparts.
