Because corn is used in so many foods, it’s probably one of the most famous GMO products. Avoiding corn is a no-brainer. If you have watched any documentaries on food production, you know that corn is very highly modified. About half of all farms in America grow corn for Monsanto. A great deal of this corn is meant for human consumption. GMO corn has been tied to a long list of health issues, including weight gain, organ disruption, and reproductive issues.

One study done in 2009 in Brazil showed that female rats there were fed GM foods for 15 months had huge changes in their reproductive cycles as well as in their uteruses. It caused changes such as an excessive production of estrogen, progesterone, and a hormone that stimulated the follicles in the body. It also showed damage to the pituitary gland, gastrointestinal problems, and chronic fatigue.

    We can’t even depend on our government to protect us from garbage that other nations will not allow in their country.
