Comment: Corn, wheat and soybeans

(See in situ)


Corn, wheat and soybeans

Are among the cheapest and lowest quality calories you can consume. These are things you would feed starving people if you had nothing left to give them. That they've become staple foods is a worldwide tragedy.

I am more worried about how the dry conditions will affect crops of quality foods, like above-ground vegetables and livestock.

"You may not eat much corn directly, but it is important to realize that corn or corn syrup is just about in everything these days. Just look at your food labels. In the United States today, approximately 75 percent of all processed foods contain corn."

So don't eat processed food. In fact, don't eat grains at all. They're basically just sugar anyway, and are what farmers feed their animals to "fatten" them.
