Unfortunately, the popular American beers contain ingredients that are harmful to your health. Miller Lite, Coors Lite, Bud Lite, Corona, and their originals (JUST TO NAME A FEW!) contain GMOs "genetically modified organisms". According to (, there are serious health risks associated with GMOs including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. In other countries, such as Germany or Belgium, GMOs are banned so you can generally trust imported beer from Europe. Beer may not necessarily be healthy, but I do enjoy a couple here and there so I am at least going to stop drinking ones that contain GMOs. In the meantime, Heineken will be my new "go to" while I investigate the availability and taste of Organic, GMO-free beers. Stay tuned for more posts regarding my "healthy" beer challenge!
