Why we should eat non-GMO 100% organic corn and soy

 [See UPDATE at bottom]

Corn and Soy…

…are the most genetically modified crops out there, due to their being used in vast quantities by animal farmers and their wanting the stuff cheap and easy to grow, regardless of the health consequences. So those two crops, when not grown organically, are heavily modified.

Monsanto’s glyphosate is the chemical at issue here…it’s also known as Roundup®, which is the most used herbicide in the USA and is being used increasingly around the world. “Roundup-ready” genetically engineered crops are grown from seeds engineered to contain a gene from “Agrobacteria.” That genetic modification makes the food crops resistant to glyphosate, meaning that only unwanted foliage cannot survive, serving to keep the food crops pure and most profitable. Users of Roundup-ready seeds are required to treat their crops with Roundup®. Corn and soy are the primary Roundup-ready crops, since, again, they’re the mainstays in the diets of “food animals.”

Of course, the manufacturer of glyphosate says it is beneficial and relatively harmless, so if you’d like to see that side, simply Google “Monsanto’s statement about glyphosate.”

Canola oil is another item which is heavily modified using Roundup® on the rapeseed crops, so it’s also wise to avoid anything but 100% organic non-GMO canola oil, if you use that oil at all.

What’s wrong with glyphosate?

[See UPDATE at bottom]

Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide which is said by some scientists to disrupt the way the body manages sulfur. Autism, for example, is associated with poor sulfur metabolism. Glyphosate also supposedly causes aluminum to be more toxic in the body, which is a great health concern due to the aluminum in vaccines.


Glyphosate is said by some to kill beneficial bacteria in the gut which allows pathogens (disease-causing bacteria) like C. difficile to overgrow which leads to “leaky gut syndrome” and indirectly promotes aluminum uptake by cells. All this can lead to kidney failure which leads to aluminum retention in tissues (including the brain) which can lead to dementia, a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease.

Some scientists also claim that glyphosate disrupts the “shikimate pathway” in our guts and depletes our tryptophan, which is the precursor to melatonin. Melatonin transports sulfate into the brain and reduces heavy metal toxicity in the body. Good stores of melatonin are said to bind to toxic metals like aluminum, lead, etc., and reduce their toxic effects in the body. But unfortunately, those scientists (Samsel and Seneff) get much of their data from animal studies. But if the above is true for humans, our being low in melatonin can bring on a lot of damage.

Vegan foods (preferably organic) high in Tryptophan are: Nuts, Seeds, Tofu & Soy, Oats, Beans, Lentils

Foods (preferably organic) high in Melatonin are: Pineapples, Bananas, Oranges, Oats, Sweet Corn, Rice, Tomatoes, Barley 

So, especially for anything containing corn, soy products or canola oil, just be sure it’s labeled 100% organic and non-GMO and you should avoid any problems related to glyphosate. If corn, soy or canola oil are listed in ingredients without the terms “organic” and “non-GMO,” simply avoid that product to help protect your health.

It makes one wonder how the animals and the animal products most people consume are affected by this herbicide. Surely some of the common illnesses farm animals suffer are due to glyphosate in all that corn and soy, among many other unhealthy practices. It’s likely that the meat, milk and eggs that come from these intensive farms has harmful effects, in concentrated form, for people who consume them. Sorry for the following image, but this is the reality…

Herbivorous animals generally have the largest populations – Ahem, humans

A Numbers Problem

For every non-human carnivorous predator on Earth there are about 4,000 human self-styled omnivorous predators…who nonetheless want to believe they are civilized, ethical and loving. But a massive number of land predators (including omnivores like bears) simply makes zero sense and goes against nature’s very efficient system of food supply. There are no large masses of bears in nature either, their being omnivores who kill and eat meat when available. Think about it. Imagine if these were lions or bears instead of wildebeests…Wildebeest-during-Great-Migration

A herd of 10,000 breeding/reproducing meat eaters in a region would eventually devour all of their food supply and then wipe themselves out, especially when resorting to cannibalism to survive. Imagine an ocean full of billions of sharks. How long would that last before everything died off? Unless those sharks adapted to plant eating somehow. In that case they could survive indefinitely until their population got so out of control that plant growth couldn’t keep up with their needs. Until a predator showed up that could get their numbers down. Back to the old vicious cycle (predator vs. prey), which humans want no part of in their nice civilized lives, except for when they’re doing all the killing, that is.

A Sustainability and Moral Problem

Humans think they have the solution to the numbers problem by farming “their own” animals and slaughtering them, taking their milk and eggs, skins, their whole existences, their lives…everything they’ve got, and then some. Nightmarish in its scope. People want to overlook the fact that those animals must be fed, watered, their huge amount of waste dealt with, the illnesses associated with the confinement and filth dealt with through antibiotic abuse, and on and on. None of it honorable or showing true human intelligence. All in all, animal farming uses up far more resources than any crop farming ever could. Not to mention the moral and ethical toll it takes on us all as a “humane” species. All this also goes towards explaining humans continually preying upon each other, which again reminds me of the ocean full of sharks mentioned above.

Hunters like to say theirs is the solution, as if 7 billion+ humans feeding on every “edible” animal out there makes any more sense than farming does. But that’s another issue.

A Lifespan Problem

Omnivorous and predatory birds are one exception to the population rule because they travel vastly from place to place and are also taken as food by predators including other birds, so while their populations can be large, they never get too numerous for their own good. Birds live on average about 30 years, while predatory land animals live about 13-20 years, while much larger


Rougheye Rockfish

African elephants (vegetarians) live about 65 years. The rougheye rockfish (a carnivore) is probably the longest living species on Earth, to about age 205, but they’re largely solitary or form small groups (schools) only at mating time. A huge population of a long-living, meat-eating, relatively large in size/scope species like humans simply is not sustainable for the long term on planet Earth. As we can see by all the serious problems caused by our animal agriculture practices.

A General Problem

Humans live on average 70-75 years and by nature tend towards huge populations (compared to other animals). We’re now 7 billion plus. Other life forms may be far more in numbers (ants for instance), but have nowhere near our huge “footprint” on the planet, with all the land mass taken up by humans, all our manufacturing, buildings, massive resources used, pollution caused, exploitation and killing of other species, etc. Except for parasites, other species serve vital needs in nature, as in ants, earthworms and flies who serve as the clean-up crew, dealing with dead bodies and other unsanitary waste, with earthworms making for rich soil, vital for plant growth. While humans mostly create polluting waste and largely benefit only our own shortsighted needs.human-592734_960_720


I didn’t want to get into charts and graphs, etc., here but just to make a simple point: We humans, with the way we want to live, have really no excuse at all to continue trying to be Earth’s “apex” predators. Our bodies and our most desirable psychological makeup, and notably our large and insatiable population, are far more suited to crop farming and eating only plant foods. And most of all, we’re suited to treating the other species and thereby ourselves only with respect and care. That would prevent our exploiting, harming and killing animals and ourselves any longer.
