It’s hard to believe that the Biofortified Blog has been online for ten years – since October 22, 2008. One thing that’s really amazing is how timeless many of our articles are.
Many of our articles that are five or more years old continue to be read again and again by people all over the world. The posts with the highest number of cumulative visits over time aren’t necessarily the ones you’d expect, either.
Have you considered writing a post for the Biofortified Blog? We’d love to have you join one of the longest-lasting and most-thorough resources for food- and agriculture-related issues on the internet.
Let’s walk through the fields of the past and review our 10 most visited Biofortified Blog posts. I’m especially happy to see some of our guest authors on this list!

What were your favorite posts? Are there any Biofortified Blog posts that you refer back to, or that you still share years after its initial publishing? I find it incredible and sometimes a little sad how some of these issues have gone unchanged over time.
Karl and I were chatting once about how well his gossypol cotton piece stood the test of time. That’s such a cool thing about science and fact–they have a good lifespan.
I regularly use (and see others point to) the Amish using GMO.
But as for impact, I’m so glad that the Carey Gillam Hogwash piece has been read by thousands upon thousands of people, and that it was used effectively by others as well.
