If sorghum sounds too good to be true, pioneering cross-breeding (Not GMO) by Japanese university scientists from 2008 has producing hardier, faster-growing, and sweeter, strains of “super sorghum,” that may help solve future energy crises.
Long hailed as a ‘miracle crop,’ the versatile sorghum plant is being hailed as a singular solution to many problems in an increasingly populated, hungry & energy-starved planet. Will sorghum save the world?
Increasingly, it looks like at least a piece of the answer. While far from a household name in developed countries, the broad-leafed sorghum genus, including all its dozens of species and subspecies, has risen to become the No. 5 ranked cereal in global production, after maize (corn), wheat, rice, and barley. Some 500 million people in 30 countries use it to make leavened and unleavened bread and fermented and unfermented beverages. It is steamed, popped, flaked and consumed as a whole grain or syrup.
Nutritionally, it is rich in niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, as well as magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, and protein. It is also fibrous, gluten-free, and serves as a wheat our substitute, opening up a host of baking options. Its enzymes help to prevent diabetes and its anti-oxidants help prevent cancer.

The plant’s amazing hardiness and utility is pushing cultivation; after having been domesticated in Ethiopia and Sudan thousands of years ago, sorghum has evolved as drought tolerant, enabling different varieties to be grown in India and Micronesia, and in both North America and Latin America. Estimates call for a 65.3 million ton global sorghum harvest for 2016 – up 9% from the prior year.
Sorghum is a genus of flowering plants in the grass family Poaceae. Seventeen of the 25 species are native to Australia, with the range of some extending to Africa, Asia, Mesoamerica, and certain islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. One species is grown for grain, while many others are used as fodder plants, either cultivated in warm climates worldwide or naturalized, in pasture lands. Sorghum is in the subfamily Panicoideae and the tribe Andropogoneae (the tribe of big bluestem and sugarcane)
Animal protein – body (muscle meat) food Omega 6 – For Laborers & Athletes! After 50 metabolism shifts to (nonGMO & Un-altered ‘Plant Protein’ (CNS & Brainfood) – for sedentary lifestyles & Desk Jockeys!
CAFO-GMO ‘altering’ REMOVES or DILUTES or OTHERWISE DESTROYS THE OMEGA 3 IN THE PROTEIN. CAFO-GMO altering is done for ‘tastier’ & to extend Shelf Life-
Not the life or our Thinking brain!
Unaltered & Non-GMO ‘Plant Protein for CNS & Brain – Omega 3 (highly unstable & quickly converts to Body-only food (Omega 6) When ‘ground to a powder’ they are quickly ‘oxidized’ AS SOON AS OPENED – become body only – ‘no longer’ as BRAIN FOOD.
The Forgotten Protein – Plant Protein to support the CNS & Prefrontal Brain (the Thinking Brain!) Unaltered whole Ancient Grains & Seafood Protein!!
** Ban GMO – It is Not SAFE!
** While it Magnifies the food (to Feed the world) – The Good Reason! The Real reason Magnified Profits!!
**ALSO MAGNIFIES are the (‘Seed Lock’ in each ‘magnifies Kernel)- Celiac disease rampant
**Also Magnifies are the Lectins in the Peel- Bitter to ‘ward off Predators’ (Obesity)!
These ‘Naturally occurring ‘non-nutrients” –
Easily removed by SOAKING (with medium-salt or apple cider vinegar to prevent microbial growth) & rinsing off before cooking
** CAFO-GMO ‘processing’ SKIPS THIS VITAL STEP!! & GRINDS into the flour –
(Whole Wheat (more protein but ‘unclean’) & All purpose-less flour only 2 grams of Protein (removing the Plant Protein by Over-Milling Leaving disease-causing Refined Carbs!
** CAFO-GMO ‘Heat Altered’ Meat & Dairy
CAFO-GMO Agriculture is the third largest contributor to global emissions by sector, following the burning of fossil fuels for power and heat, and transportation.
1. Contain ‘Dead Bacteria’ from Pasteurization
2. Fed GMO Alfalfa, Soy or Corn – Research is showing forms Alzheimer’s Plaques in the brain!
3. Cortisol from inhumane stressful farming conditions. Making Modern Dairy Putrid with Puss!
** Ban Roasting-of Raw Nuts, Seeds & Ancient Grains – BUT SOAK-to make ‘CLEAN’ – remove the seed lock & lectins.
** Ban Over-Milled Ancient Grains (Plant Protein)-
**Cheap (HIGH PROFIT) Fast ‘Over-Processed ‘DISEASE-CAUSING’ Convenience’ foods.
Help Create Awareness OF CAFO Contribution to Greenhouse Gasses
** CAFO waste (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation)-Over 168 Gases are Emitted-Major Cause of ‘Global Warming’-Ban GMO & CAFOs Go Away
