Cornmeal Follow Up Newsletter

Subscribe to FREE weekly newsletter      Newsletter Archives




Got a huge amount of response to the last newsletter on the cornmeal controversy. Most was positive about how well cornmeal has worked as a disease control, but here’s one response from a different angle:

Thanks for this update. So now cornmeal is good for lots of things, but eating it is a bad idea, yes or no? I know it's engineered, but for my health, must I stop eating all corn products? I hope you have time to answer this little question with your opinion. Thank you. Zuri

Great question. Eating too much corn is not a good idea even without the GMO issue. One reason it works so well as a horticulture product is how well it converts to sugar. In other words, it is very fattening. So, I don’t recommend eating a lot of corn.

On the GMO issue, avoiding corn is not our only problem. The other crops that are commonly genetically modified are: GMO Foods to Avoid.

I will be talking about the corn issue from all sides this Sunday during the first hour. Tune in 8am -11am CST to the Dirt Doctor Radio Show. The call-in phone number is 1-866-444-3478. Listen on the internet or click here to find a station in your area.

Please share this newsletter with everyone in your address book and all your friends on Facebook and Twitter to help me spread the word on organics.

Naturally yours,

Howard Garrett
