|www.thepoultrysite.com has this headline on their site today: Multiple Mycotoxins in Grain Poses a Threat to Poultry Population. Here is the opening sentence.|
“US – Ninety per cent of global corn, grain and barley samples taken from 2013’s harvest contain three to 11 mycotoxins, increasing risks for bird health and performance…”
The mycotoxin, fumonisin made up over 80% of the corn contamination. In birds, fumonisins can cause liver damage, organ bleeding, reduced feed intake, reduced egg production, poor egg shell quality and poor immune response.
MY TAKE: I like chickens, but I like humans more. Given this 90% statistic, it goes without saying that we humans are regularly eating poisonous mycotoxins in our corn and grain supply. Yet, if it weren’t for Know The Cause, no one would ever know why so many of us are bloated, sore and sick. Do you know the entire story on corn?
