With ‘experts’ all over the world telling us GMOs are ‘safe’, a gregarious nine-year-old named Daniel Bissonnette (along with hundreds of other scientists, and then hundreds more) is telling people everywhere, including his friends at school, to ditch their GMO sunchips, and to go organic. He also educates his peers about how he knows Bt toxins can ruin your gut health and possibly alter our own DNA.
In this animated video, Daniel explains to us why he won’t consider eating even one sun chip since they are full of Bt corn – which is possibly one of Monsanto’s biggest failures. Bt corn is named as such because a gene from the soil bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), which produces a Bt toxin, is inserted into the corn seed genetically, which then acts as a pesticide, exploding inside the stomach of the pests which eat it. But guess what, it does the same thing to the people that eat it – and even Daniel understands this. Its been in our food supply since the 1990s, but became popular as a means to hopefully eradicate one of corn’s biggest enemies – the rootworm.f
Here’s where Monsanto’s science experiment has failed, though. The pest which Bt corn was meant to eradicate is now becoming resistant to the GMO corn plants. University of Illinois entomologist Michael Gray has visited Bt corn fields and found:
