Christie Brinkley on GMOS: ‘We’re Guinea Pigs’

By Jade Scipioni, November 17, 2015

She’s graced the cover of more than 500 magazines, and now, 40 years later, supermodel Christie Brinkley is back in the spotlight with a new book called “Timeless Beauty.”

Brinkley wrote the lifestyle book to share her beauty secrets on looking good at the age of 61 and also to inspire people to get healthier, especially with the foods they eat.

“I think there are so many issues with our food industry that are blatantly disrespectful to our planet and us as individuals,” Brinkley tells

She says the most alarming part is the fact that genetically modified crops are affecting our insect population.

“The bees are suffering right now and without the bees—well, Einstein said when the bees go, the next thing that goes are people,” she says. “What I don’t like about GMOs is that we’re the guinea pigs. The testing—if there’s testing—we’re the ones doing the testing and that is not fair and furthermore it’s not labelled so we don’t know if we’re the ones eating them.”
