Monsanto's Bt Toxin GM Corn - My Kitchen Pot

Monsanto's Bt Toxin GM Corn - My Kitchen Pot | Writing | Scoop.it

Monsanto has released its first direct-to-consumer product, a GM sweet corn containing Bt toxin, designed to protect the plant by rupturing the stomach of any insect that feeds on it. Monsanto claims the toxin will break down before the corn makes it to your dinner table, but rats fed the GM corn showed organ failure and the toxin has been detected in the bodies of pregnant women.

Zoe Koz's insight:

Another piece of evidence that the Monsanto bill, pushed through Congress, is such a danger to all, especially our children.  Please educate yourself on this problem.  It's not going to go away on it's own......we need to have an Active Voice and have this bill repealed!

Personally we think it's time to stop eating corn and related products. No corn starch, corn syrup basically anything with corn in it. Including cake these people do not care about the human race. Become diligent about organic corn too because we think they may even lie about that and we would hate to see anybody in pain when there are other foods you can replace it with.

**I would describe Steve Glasford’s singing voice as fearless, powerful and a force to be reckoned with. When he is on stage he exudes pure confidence as he belts out “Lost Autumn’s” signature songs. I was blown away when I had the opportunity to hear him and the band perform their song “Anthem for the Weak”. I know not all of our readers are alternative rock fans, but this particular song has a universal subject, a subject that is causing countless youth in our country to commit suicide. The subject is bullying. In the world we live in today, cyber bullying has elevated victimization to a whole new level. Bullying follows our youth home, there is no reprieve.  It’s in their living rooms, bedrooms, there is no escape.
