Danger to man?
Finally we have to address this aspect which is justifiably being brought forward by critics of blue corn time and again: Is the fertilizer out of the chemistry laboratory poisonous or not? In short, is blue corn an aggressive chemical substance which does not contain any natural substances? It contains nutrients in a high dosage that the human body does not require.
- nitrate nitrogen leads to an irritation of the stomach and intestines
- vomiting and diarrhea follow
- nitrate can be converted into nitrite
- nitrite negatively affects the binding of oxygen to red blood cells which leads to an under supply of the whole body
Protecting children and pets
Due to the smaller body structure of children and pets, even smaller amounts can be dangerous. Blue corn should thus not be anywhere near someone in need of protection. The usage of blue corn should be avoided if children or pets are expected to be in the same garden. If they consume blue corn, the immediate assistance of a doctor is required.
Problems arising out of nitrite poisoning should not be underestimated. The environment can be harmed as well by the usage of blue corn as it over acidifies the soil. You should thus keep an eye on not using too much of the fertilizer. Acidic soil burns plants and destroys the vegetation.
