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”.

Do Farmers Have Choices?

agrithoughts:

I was interested in what the farmers themselves have to say about their seed choices, how they choose the seed they do, and why do they CHOOSE to plant GMOs or maybe they don’t? So I asked several farmers some questions… and here’s what I found.

An interesting article from the Huffington Post. Insight from the people who do the planting, not the companies or medias that report on them!

Did you know this year, each American farm family will feed 155 people? Neither did consumers in many major U.S. cities. See their reactions to learning this fact — and then see how grateful they became for America’s farm families. This holiday season, don’t forget to thank America’s farmers.

WHERE’S THE BEEF?  IN THAT PETRI DISH, ACUTALLY  A hamburger patty made from cow muscle grown in a laboratory was fried, served and eaten during a demonstration in London on Monday.  The experiment, paid for by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, represents the first step in providing “high-quality protein for the world’s growing population while avoiding most of the environmental and animal welfare issues related to livestock production,” according to the New York Times.  Not addressed: the world’s growing gag reflex at seeing their Big Mac plop out of a petri dish.  (Photos: David Parry / PA via EPA [top]; Toby Melville / Reuters, both via the New York Times)
