    Midwest droughts and aflotoxins

    In the event you're looking for good reason why we should avoid eating grains (or grain fed livestock):

    From Corn Belt To Main Street: The Drought's Far-Reaching Grasp : NPR
    ^The 2012 draught has been officially declared in continuation by the USDA as of 1/9/13. Meaning less crops, less feed for livestock, farmers potentially having to sell of their stocks, etc. etc. etc. It does affect food prices but we don't see it hit as hard like it does overseas. More importantly, susceptibility to disease:

    The allowable limit by independent farmers is usually even lower then the FDA's guidelines as to prevent crop destruction. In these days of GMO, if one plant is sick they all get sick because of lack of genetic variation. All said and done, it's just more evidence to the argument that man has no reason to be eating monocrops. With that being said, we really shouldnt be eating beef, pork, or poultry fed grains either.

    Come on what's wrong with agricultural dominance?! One seed strain is the only way it needs to be.
    PS if you try to use any other strain then that of the patented seed, you'll find your ass in court. Therefore, if you wish to continue farming in America you WILL use the patented seed, whether you like it or not
