Mexican Inventions to Impress Medical Tourists: ancient ones
Consider Mexico’s prehispanic past. Now we can add more major inventions and discoveries. #Vulcanization process is how industry produces rubber. The earliest known Vulcanization took place in prehispanic Mexico.
Food-wise, pre-historic Mexicans discovered #chocolate, chewing gum, and corn.
The ancient Zapotecs used corn as well as #popcorn (without even watching any movies). They, or a civilization before them, created corn. They selectively bred a type of grass called teocintle (Zea genus). Originally it grew in the Mexican central valley. In the modern era we have QPM Corn. Evangelina Villegas invented that.
