Avoiding Genetically Modified Crops, Part I
Choosing organic corn means skipping most conventional foods. In fact, more than 4,000 U.S. products contain corn as an ingredient, and that doesn’t count all the corn used in livestock production.
More chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used on corn than any other crop, and most corn (over 50 million acres in the U.S.) is genetically modified. Switching to organic corn, according to Dr. Alan Greene, is not yet an easy thing to do, yet it could do wonders for our health and our planet.
