Maize: food from the Gods?: “In a 1982 exhibition, the Mexican National Museum of Culture claimed that maize was ???not domesticated, but created???. Indeed, maize is accepted as Man???s first, and perhaps his greatest, feat of genetic engineering. So much so, that it is even said to be a gift from the gods.”

“someone, millennia before Christ, was a far better genetic engineer than any currently working in the hundreds of scientific laboratories on the planet” … and other interesting bits about one of our favourite foods, and how it has been farmed these past 4000 years.
