Gene... and this is why we're growing our own corn now and not feeding the conglomerates.

I know much of this gene modified corn gets into our food system... the sad part is the populous has no control over this and has no idea what to long-term outcome will be. Neither does Monsanto, Dupont/Pioneer, Syngenta or the FDA.

Looking forward, guess the next generation gets to deal with those "new" diseases and maybe even some that we're now immune to. Just glad I'll not have to be around to deal with it...
