    Radiation experiment? You're kidding, right?

      Once a year, once locally famous corn ripens (which is ~September here) I boil a couple of cobs for each of us. My folks eat popcorn once in a while (air-popped, organic, presumably non GMO). I would rather have buckwheat, millet or beans if I decided to eat grains/legumes. Overall though, I find I just don't enjoy corn so much. Used to like corn on the cob and popcorn.
      I can't stand corn on the cob. My husband will stuff himself with Taber corn every year and I really don't see the appeal. He must have eaten 30 cobs last year. The only corn I have is some sprouted organic corn tortillas every once in a while when I want fish tacos.

        this is incorrect, internet fear-mongering.

        when geo washington's troops were doing a bit of scorched earth to burn out the iroquois, they discovered a cache of super-sweet corn. this became the favored corn crop for whites in a very short time.

        New York Times says Breeding

        [Addendum: As noted in the comments, a correction ran after this Times story was published. Apparently super-sweet corn was not born of a mutation induced by radiation, as originally stated. Here's the Times correction that ran on May 28th:

        "This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
        An earlier version of this article incorrectly referred to the origins of
        super-sweet corn. The corn was the result of a natural, spontaneous mutation,
        not one artificially induced through radiation."]

        As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          Though perhaps not pertinent to GMO vs organic, below does compare almost identical amounts of cow feed to human feed.

            Anything that is certified organic is non-gmo. I get the frozen organic corn tortillas from Whole Foods and Bob's Red Mill Organic Corn grits now and then. Don't know how easy it is to get your hands on fresh organic corn on the cob.
