Non-genetically modified Corn showing an aura
Corn is the number one crop grown in the United States and about 88% of it is genetically modified.

These chemicals, which signal wasps to attack pests, are not present in genetically modified corn. Through Kirlian photography, the aura of a non-genetically modified corn can still be seen.
