CHICAGO -- The U.S. Corn Belt - the world's top grain region - is seeing another dry winter after the worst summer drought in half a century, reducing prospects for a bumper summer harvest that would help ease global food prices, crop and climate experts said.

"We are still concerned about getting the leftovers out of the way from the drought of 2012. At this time we would not anticipate a national corn yield above the trend," said Iowa State University climatologist Elwynn Taylor, who has studied crop production for decades. "Rather, we would expect a fourth consecutive year of below-trend crop, not as far below as in 2012 but still not up to par."

The 2012 drought locked two-thirds of the U.S. continental land mass in severe drought last summer, cutting production of the biggest crop, corn, by 27 percent from early season estimates.

We should then stop making corn syrup and its products for food.

Why? Learn it yourself.

Saw a diet, where corn, sugar(inc. fructose), soy, peanuts(not nuts, seeds) & other common foods should be reduced in your diet.

There's much to follow. Here's one
http://www.medilexicon.com/medicalnews.php...

but you can find metabolic studies that show why this is so about the corn syrup.

As to your comment "peanuts(not nuts, seeds)" I'm not sure what you're saying.

They stated that peanuts aren't nuts. Peanuts are a legume. As with soy, peanuts should be avoided because of its allergy-causing side effects & the incredible amount of genetic modification it is going through. I'm trying out almond butter instead of peanut butter. Gee, I just found a peanut butter brand that was really good, too. Maybe, I can make most of my sandwiches with almond butter & an occasional peanut butter sandwich.

True but I don't like the almond butter, it's too toasty.

It's just about impossible to avoid the GM in USA. They say it applies to more then 80 percent of what we eat.

The corn syrup problem is a priority also because of GM.

Yeah, its roasty toasty....nutty, too(surprise). Comes in various get-ups.... crunchy, w/honey, etc). Hey(not hay, as 'phud feces face' would say), 4 times the price of peanut butter! Costco has an OK price.

Russia loves global warming.

Siberia warms up.

The USA turns into a dustbowl.
