buy organic corn

as more studies are done on genetically modified foods, more health risks are learned. a natural insecticide, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), used to genetically modify corn produces a protein that when absorbed by humans results in detectable levels of toxins are found in the blood of pregnant and non-pregnant women. lab research shows that this toxin has toxic effects on human kidney cells.

it doesn’t seem like this issue has been raised to an alarming level yet as it is very hard to find organic corn. but there are a few places, i.e trader joe’s frozen section has Organic Super Sweet Cut Corn, which is pretty good.

i hope the FDA will speed up restrictions on using this and other insecticides that can cause harm to our health.
