BP Corn

Here’s the rub:

• Monsanto created “BP Corn” using genetically modified crops that include an insect-killing bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis,or Bt.

• It is supposed to make the stomach of certain insects explode.

• This Corn accounts for 65% of all corn grown in the US and…

• Last year, doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec found Bt-toxin in the blood of:

  • 93 percent of pregnant women tested
  • 80 percent of umbilical blood in their babies, and
  • 67 percent of non-pregnant women

• Which makes sense because when you eat processed foods you are eating BP Corn: genetically engineered corn is present in the vast majority of all processed foods and drinks in the form of high fructose corn syrup.

The moral of the story is stop eating corn unless you know where it comes from (locally grown organic source) and stop eating processed foods. If you purchase processed foods and corn you are voting with your dollar to keep Monsanto thriving. And, if you think organic locally grown food sources are expensive, have you priced cancer lately?

  1. I quit eating all non organic corn and all processed foods with any corn-based ingredients when I learned about this last year.

    It’s totally disturbing that they can engineer a chemical poison into our food and no one can (or will) stop them!

    The worst part is that the Monsanto corn seed is spreading, polluting more cornfields and making it nearly impossible for even organic growers to keep their corn pure.

    Human short-sightedness is truly mind-boggling at times.
