  1. I agree that it's important not to freak out and simply educate yourself (preferably with a wide range of sources). It's ok to be cautious until you've made an informed decision that you are comfortable with.
  2. I've been doing a lot of research about GMO foods recently and am fascinated by the long term effects of consuming those altered foods over the course of our lives and even generations. I'd love to see a side by side comparison of the plants protein breakdown and how those slight changes might be processed differently in our guts as a whole. Does anyone know of some good non/GMO research and or resources available online? Naturally, given the topic, most of what I read is terribly bias and not quite as scientifically thorough as I'd like. As far as corn goes for me... When at university I lived off of greens, rice, corn tortillas (as my bread), and lucky for me peanut butter mostly because they were cheap, though I did have to splurge on a good peanut butter. My school was in a small town (with no health food store) and the cafeteria food was the kind that listed fish as the vegetarian option... you gotta love them for trying;) As you might imagine I did not have a lot of physical or mental energy during those times, but since then I've really worked hard to master cooking and eating great with my food restrictions! As far as corn goes, I mostly just stay away. These days when I do eat corn, it's usually in the form of polenta or cornbread and always organic and Non-GMO (as well as Gluten free, dairy free, and egg free... You all know the drill). I do notice a difference in digestion and over all feeling with the Non-GMO corn vs GMO/or not specified.
