What is Bt-Corn?
- Bt-Corn is a form of sweet-corn that has been genetically modified to include an insect killing gene therefore completely removing the process of which the farmer sprays the corn with insect pesticides. This leaves less harm to the environment and takes a whole lot of time off by removing the farmer handling the pesticide spray process. The gene that has been modified into the corn is called 'Bt Delta Endotoxin,' it is a soil bacterium that produces insecticidal toxins, in other terms, is the gene that the corn absorbs
- There are no known human health effects associated with Bt corn, therefor is completely safe for the environment and most importantly consumption. By removing the step of physically spraying the plant with insect killing toxins completely removes any side effects that could occur from the toxins. No spray, no harm.
