The United States is run over with GMO corn. More than 20 varieties of genetically modified corn are being sown across hundreds of thousands of acres of America’s farmland. It is estimated that 89% of all corn crops planted, are in fact, now GMO. With these inexcusable statistics, proving that biotech has completely dominated the seed industry, you should know just what is in those corn chips at your favorite restaurant.
Here are 5 things in GMO corn that shouldn’t be in anything we put into our bodies:
1. E. Coli Bacteria DNA
Using recombinant DNA technology, biotech has infused our corn with a strain of E. coli. Most E. coli strains are harmless, but some, such as serotype O157:H7, can cause serious food poisoning in humans, and are occasionally responsible for product recalls.
