    News story for TC - GM Wheat showing up everywhere

    The discovery of rogue genetically modified wheat plants growing in an Oregon field last year was officially deemed an unsolved mystery by the U.S. Agriculture Department on Friday, even as it revealed that a similar incident in Montana is under investigation.

    The new discovery involves unapproved genetically engineered (GE) wheat plants found growing at a University of Montana research center, adjacent to fields where the herbicide-resistant plants were field tested from 2000 to 2003.

    While the new discovery raises questions about the regulation of such authorized tests, it is unlikely to generate the same level of alarm as the Oregon find on May 3, 2013, which involved a commercial wheat field. That prompted Japan, South Korea and Taiwan to temporarily suspend purchases of western white wheat grown throughout the Pacific Northwest.

    The USDA says that while GE wheat has not been approved for sale or commercial production in the U.S., it does not pose a food safety threat. But foreign markets have rejected GE wheat, even as they have embraced other genetically engineered crops like corn, perhaps because it is so ubiquitous in processed food products.


    The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) said in a news release that the two U.s. appearances of the GE wheat in the wild do not appear to be linked, as genetic testing showed the plants were from different stocks.

    Environmentalists and paleo dieters everywhere are sh*****g themselves.

    I wonder how many people understand what genetic engineering of plants really means. One of my clients is a subsidiary of Monsanto, and they do genetic engineering of a couple of crop plants. It's interesting, and educational. It's not what most people imagine.

    I am totally fine with GMOs and vaccinations. They are targets of the anti-science agenda of the left, while the right practices theirs against AGW and evolution.

    GMO's - especially the plants that have pesticides engineered into them - could be a HUGE problem if used incorrectly. We already have antibiotic-resistant bacteria everywhere due to our misuse of antibiotics. GMO crops could end with bug populations that are resistant to our best pesticides.
    "The transition from democracy to tyranny is most easily brought about by a popular leader who knows how to exploit the class antagonism between the rich and the poor within the democratic state, and who succeeds in building up a bodyguard of a private army of his own. The people who have hailed him first as the champion of freedom are soon enslaved."
