Could This New ‘Organic Ready’ Corn Help End GMO Cross Pollination and Monsanto?
naturalsociety.com
In the world of Round Up Ready corn and other genetically modified crops, we’re in dire need of another ‘solution.’ Frank Kutka has been working on ‘Organic Ready’ corn for over 15 years as an all-around answer to biotech’s cancer causing crops. Kutka is a plant breeder who has been attempting to grow corn that naturally resists GM crop contamination through cross-pollination, thus eliminating Monsanto’s prevalently grown GMO corn from infesting organic farmer’s crops.

New Study Finds GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile

Dear Farmers: U.S. is Now Importing Organic Corn to Satisfy Consumer Demand
feedproxy.google.com
Heather CallaghanActivist PostThere are three things driving a surge in organic imports:U.S. farmers have been systematically pushed into growing mostly GMO crops; grown primarily for fuel, animal feed and cheap processed foods. Russia even used our food supply as an example for the EU to dump us and join them instead. U.S. consumers are not only demanding fresh, organic produce as well as non-GMO convenience foods - but also want meat, dairy and eggs from animals that were fed non-GMO or o [...]

Brazil Approves more Herbicide-Resistant Corn, Soy, & GM Trees
naturalsociety.com
You win some and lose some in the biotech bully’s game. Brazil made three GM products legal this past week in a seeming low and groveling curtsey to its fans of genetic modification. The vote was 18 ‘for’ and only 3 ‘against’ poisoning the biosphere more completely. Not only did Brazil’s National Technical Commission on Biotechnology (CTNBio) approve genetically modified eucalyptus trees, but they also gave a nod to corn and soybeans both made to be tolerant to 2,4-D herbicide.

GM Transgene Corn Infiltrates South African Seed Supply

Remember that unsavory consequence that experts warned about whereby genetically engineered ‘trans’ genes cross-pollinate non-GM types to cause a literal war on our food supply? Well it has happened again in South Africa. Biotech companies have come up with all sorts of ridiculous reasons for using trans-gene technology, without a modicum for concern about containing those genes once they are let loose into the world – or perhaps this was their intention all along.

How to Make Corn Tortillas: Nixtamalizing and Grinding Dried Corn

by Shannon Stonger Health Impact News The process of nixtamalization is a simple one, one that has been practiced for generations by those whose mainstay is the corn grain. Corn masa, the dough that makes tortillas and chips and tamales, cannot be made without this process. But it wasn’t done for frivolous reasons or for aesthetic purposes. Instead, those who subsisted off of corn and other local foods found it imperative to their health. Pellagra is a disease often acquired by cultures wh [...]
