Monsanto Wants to Start Testing GM Wheat

Biotechnology giant Monsanto has announced plans to start testing genetically modified (GM) wheat, in spite of prior failures to gain acceptance for the technology.

GM food crops already on the market include corn, soy and sugar beets. Monsanto attempted to introduce GM wheat in the early part of the decade, but abandoned the effort in 2004 when international buyers threatened to boycott U.S. wheat, prompting U.S. wheat growers to reject the technology.'

  1. Hmmmm, personally, I would like to see more independent testing and research done on the correlation between GM foods and cancer as well as the effect of GM as a causative factor for allergies.

    Has anyone done this yet?

    I also do not want to eat GM foods for any reason. There is enough food in abundance to feed the whole world, so we do not need these Frankenstein foods, regardless of what these liars try to tell us about so called food shortages. If certain people weren't wasting food and polluting land, sea and air, we wouldn't have any problems at all, would we?


Thanks for your comment it is much appreciated.
