“For many years, I conducted fieldwork among the Zapotec Indians of Oaxaca, in the highlands of Southern Mexico—the birthplace of maize. One of my primary contacts, a young Zopotec man, moved to Mexico City to start a small transport business shuttling workers from home to factory.
Instead of his usual daily routine of hard manual labor and simple traditional foods, he was now sitting all day driving a minivan while drinking sugary sodas and eating high-fat foods. Instead of handmade corn tortillas made from heritage maize, he ate GM corn tortillas.
Within a year he had gained over 150 pounds. His cholesterol was over 300 and his fasting glucose (blood sugar) was close to 200. Almost overnight, he had become an obese diabetic. The cure was to return to his village, eat the traditional diet, work daily in the maize and bean fields, and drink a wild crafted herbal tea provided by the village curandera. In three months, his glucose was below 120 and his cholesterol was approaching normal. Within five months, his blood tests were not only in the desirable range, they hit optimal numbers, and he had returned to his normal weight.”
