Like a typical modern American diet, my diet is primarily composed of genetically modified foods. Almost everything that a typical American consumes, having bought the products from regular stores, is genetically altered. However, compared to many people, I usually eat homemade food. I believe that this is beneficial, though the ingredients are still genetically altered. At least, while eating at home, one knows exactly what he or she consumes and in what quantities. Foods eaten outside are often rich in unhealthy fats and carbohydrates.
