I'm not familiar with the book, but if you eat too much of pretty much anything, it can be bad for you. Try this book if you are serious about getting healthy:
It's a great book that is easy to read and understand, and helps explain a lot of misconceptions that many people have about food.
I don't know much about GMOs, but humans have had a pretty bad track record in our attempts to alter food. There have been so many attempts which all seemed like a great idea at the time, but turned out to be horrible. Chances are good this attempt will also have some negative effects, although there will not be any definitive evidence for many years.
The bottom line is that our digestive systems evolved over many thousands of years based on what was available to eat. What most people eat today is radically different from what people ate only 50-100 years ago, but evolution does not work on such a short time scale and so people are becoming very unhealthy.
