Amazingly corn, wheat and soybeans are not necessary in human diets,
Amazingly, Americans throw away over 40% of the food they bring home. This does not include food that the stores dispose of.
Additionally, most processed foods are composed primarily of corn, wheat, and soy.
I’m just saying a decline in the production of corn, wheat and soybeans is not necessarily a bad thing for humans.
Decline in the production of the crop will also lead to an even larger cost increase of meat (fake meats used in vegetarian diets), oils, pet foods and various items that use the crops byproduct for creation.
Just because humans don’t eat it, doesn’t mean there isn’t a different use for it or it’s by products.Hey you are entitled to your opinion too, I just both disagree with the use of pesticides and with the use of this statistic as a defense for pesticides.
The reason I always reblog responses and then my responses is so my followers can see the two sides of the coin. Obviously my opinion is going to be different, but the best way for people to create their own is to see all sides of a “fact”.

this is beautiful!
