According to Dr. Geoffrey Broderick, a veterinary surgeon for nearly 50 years in NY, he states “since 1996 and the introduction of GMO foods”, he has discovered a ‘phenomenal’ change in pet health. Then the national average lifespan of a pet was about 16 years. Now that lifespan is 8 years, according to Dr. Broderick. And, if you buy a puppy today, the life span is 7 years. “Disease is rampant” and now 1 in 2 pets will get cancer he predicts. Dr. Broderick believes diet is key. He recommends to his pet clients a non-gmo/organic diet and in “90 days I see a drastic positive change”.
