Not Your Typical Corny Question
Nope… Not a valid question at all to that effect.
*picture bottom ear of corn*
Get the freak out, you mean that’s what goes on with GMO corn it looks so diseased 🙁
The question that was asked of me was this.
“Is Corn harmful to our health?”
When someone ask you a question such as this, you have to take a moment to contemplate the answer.
So tonight that is exactly what I am going to do, and that is to find any evidence linking Corn to health issues that affect people who eat it.
Corn Under The Scope
So let’s start with what we know so far…
Corn has been around before the times of AD (After Death), matter of fact it had surfaced as far back as 1900 B.C. (Before Christ) which makes it older than Jesus himself!
Through countless decades it has been a harvested crop to help feed billions upon billions of people since that time, even today it still stands as one of the key vegetables to feed the last 3 generations on Earth as we speak right now.
So why has Corn caught such a bad rap?
Despite the fact that Corn rakes in $30 billion a year mostly through farming and distribution, rumor has it that there is so much corn in the U.S. that could fill up an entire country the size of Germany!
But back to the “tainted corn conspiracy”, the stigmata to corn is simple to flush out.
Have you heard of GMO’s?
I refer to them as GMF’s
GMO’s are called “Genetically Modified Organisms”, so if you replace the — O — with a — F — then the organisms could be replaced with Foods.
If you’re catching my drift, you know that I’m thinking that an organism is food (organic in nature) which is modified to feed a larger organism when linked to GMO breeding.
“Psst… That’s a hint that I just gave you in the sentence just above, I’m talking about you & me because we’re the larger organism.”
Sound a bit off? Let’s look at the other side of the coin.
It works the same with a school of small fish, a larger fish will go after the smaller fish to feed itself.
It nothing personal against the smaller fish that are basically dinner to the larger fish, it’s just the order of the “food chain” this is what we call survival of the fittest.
It’s not too different with humans, we have to eat, we need food for nourishment, and we need it to survive.
But we happens if the smaller fish that the bigger fish ate made him sick, depending on what the smaller fish had eaten before-hand could cause change within the fish itself. The unsuspecting larger fish eats him, gets sick, very sick and then eventually dies from disease and illness.
Woah! Yea that’s karma for ya.
So where we come into all of this is easy to understand, but you’re thinking how it’s so easy to understand?
Here’s the rundown.
You go to the grocery and buy some corn, you get back home and you peel the husk off the corn, you snap off the stalk at the bottom, you peel away the silky stringy hair from it, you finish up by cleansing any remaining strains of silk washing it off the corn.
You place the corn into a pot of boiling water as you prepare for a corn on the cobb delight.
Now it’s up to you what you decide to add to it (it could be a few teaspoons of sugar to add a sweet taste to it etc.), if you’re looking for a distinguished flavor.
After it’s all said and done you’re now sitting down to a nice treat, some great corn on the cobb!
This is a routine side-dish you like, and you have it a few times out of the week.
Life is great as you enjoy your favorite food whenever you like.
A few months later, you start to notice some discomfort and you’re finding yourself going to the bathroom frequently. For the next two days you’re still taking random trips to the bathroom having stomach pains, nauseousness, diarrhea, and your feeling dehydrated.
It’s starting to concern you big time, so call to make arrangements to see your doctor.
The doctor asks a series of questions about you diet regime (or what types of foods you like to eat), you tell the doctor that you are not an expert cook and you’re a corn lover to the core!
You go on to tell your doctor that you love it as a side dish with various type of food you have throughout the day.
The doctor takes in the verbal information and tells you about your condition, they tell you that you are having allergic reactions from the food you are eating.
Small traces of toxic waste was discovered in your in body and is responsible for weakening your immune system, you’re shocked to hear all of this of course and can’t believe what the good ‘doc’ is telling you.
So what would you be thinking at this point?
You would be anxious to find out what was causing this compromising condition to manifest within you, you remember an article you read about GMO’s used to grow fruits & vegetables twice the size in half the time.
Then it’s hits you…
You come to the conclusion that your favorite side dish is slowly killing you!
What GMO’s Can Do To You & Your Food:
GMO’s have caught a lot heat over the past few years, organizations such as the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) claim that these food friendly items are “safely tested” to consume and enjoy. The only problem with that statement, is the evidence lacking to support the facts of GMO testing of food products are actually safe to be serve to the consumer.
You see the wool over the eyes part is this, food manufacturers know that GMO experimentation is taking place in their facilities and count on them to be sold out in the market.
(don’t let this picture fool you, the green corn is converted into the vibrate yellow after it is ‘altered’ to look normal!)
In the report it stated that toxicities were linked to the “altered corn” after it was genetically engineered, one example of GMO corn distribution in Ontario, Canada made the claim that their corn products are ‘GMO-free’.
However, after a conducted study was done to test they’re claim they failed miserably after unknown elemental agents were found on the product itself.
Among these were the following…
Chlorides can found in particular “metal salts” (anion Cl –) this is one of the harmful elements linked to GMO’s, any high salt / sodium content (especially with metallic properties) in food is dangerous. You do need salt in your diet, but a balanced amount is highly recommended!
Formaldehyde will cause people to panic when they hear that it could cause cancer, the compound itself is considered non-lethal despite the fact that it is linked to food contamination through “food packaging” of product goods. It’s also found in plastic bottles, and metal soup cans as a chemical agent and is considered relatively harmless to people.
It is frequent for chemical agents such as formaldehyde to wind up in food packaged items, which is also why quality inspections must be conducted to detect high levels of contamination of the product. Can soups, breakfast cereals, frozen vegetables, crackers, & packaged meats may contain formaldehyde in their packaging.
Glyphosate I mentioned in a previous article, it is “herbicidal” or an herbicide agent used in pesticide / weed killing sprays, and is used particular to kill off broadleaf weeds & grasses. Roundup a particular weed killing agent is just one of the many types of pesticides used to kill off weeds, and harmful insects that contaminate precious crops (such as corn).
This is where the chemical agent glyphosate rears it’s ugly head to eliminate diseased insects to protect the crop itself, only problem of this on-going process is the crop itself becomes contaminated from the pesticide spray as an end result.
(Bats can help to protect crops from insects, sounds weird and off the wall but that one is up for a topic discussion very soon!)
It’s like one of those… “damned if you do” vs “damned if you don’t”, type scenarios.
There’s even a three dilemma to this scenario that takes a darker turn for the worse, insects such as mosquitoes have developed stronger immunity to herbicide chemical sprays.
So basically crops are being sprayed with the chemical agent glyphosate (not to mention others that are mixed in with it to form a powerful concoction for eliminating weeds & insects), it’s literally lacing the crops with toxins in which overtime will affect you in some way down the line in life.
This is one of the many reasons why Corn is getting a bad wrap, and no LOL I’m not talking about the husk part that it actually comes wrapped in.
So to answer the question of a curious individual that wanted some good insight about GMO’s, well here it is in karmatic truth fashion.
Makes you wonder about the “so-called” inspectors that are looking out for contaminates such as these that wind up in the very food products that we buy and eat every day!
The government is not to be excluded from this either, they have they’re planned agendas in this matter as well you can count on that.
It’s like Mom used to do on the holidays when using certain spices and a little nutmeg in the dressing mix.
She would say…“A little dash of this, a little dash of that will make it all the better.”
LOL… A little dash of this and that, you don’t say.
The average Mom today would re-think that old cliché all together when she doesn’t know whether not it’s a GMO bi-product just waiting to work it’s adverse mojo inside of her child.
