The pesticide containing corn contains BT (bacillis thurengensis) which is a safe naturally occurring pesticide. It is not a highly toxic synthetic pesticide. And by the way, in the absence of BT corn, they find it necessary to use those toxic pesticides to control root worm.Of course, if you are concerned about this aspect, you can buy and use organic corn. But the lower yield means higher cost.Your line of reasoning would also outlaw the use of antibiotics.
