Quote:Canada is giving the go ahead to GMO wheat. Although it is not ready for production yet, the plans are set:

The National Research Council plans to develop genetically modified wheat in Canada — a measure long resisted by the country’s wheat farmers.

The NRC says Canadian wheat farmers are becoming less productive and need to adapt, especially in the face of climate change. It suggests GM wheat as a solution.

In the past week, senior NRC management has been unveiling its long-term strategy to its researchers and other staff. The goal, says a leaked copy of the plan, is to become a “market-driven organization whose primary goal is to develop and deploy technology.”

And it says building better wheat is one of the top goals.

Canada is “losing global market share for our exports,” it says. “Our annual productivity is ranked last against other top producing countries.” As demand rises, “climate change is impacting our agricultural production.”


The document outlines how transgenic wheat could produce new hybrids that will be “a game changer.” (Transgenic organisms have DNA modified through genetic engineering techniques, to create a desirable trait such as resistance to disease.)
But the document warns that a “huge effort” will be necessary to decode all the genetic material in wheat and to learn what traits can be manipulated in the lab.

Climate change? As in what massive increases in radiation? GMO is a game changer alright, as in we're all so very ƒükkêd . Theres a damn good reason Bill Gates built a seed bank in Norway to hold non gm non sterile seed of all types.

Bad news for Canada, and another loss for man.

hi5.gif Heh, Nice avatar! Funny you should mention Soylent green, I hadn't seen that sence childhood and Octo had never seen it. I recalled it being really good, but you know what?

If Heston were any more fabulously dressed in that movie he's shït skittles.

A lot of good movies from the 70's are like that...

Take a look at Logans run after all these years. rofl.gif WTF was I thinking when I remembered it being good? Must have been remembering a 70's Farah Fawcett.

yeah I know what you mean. I thought Logan's Run was the best ever, until I watched it again. Silent Running is in the same boat.

The EU gave the green light for all members to consume meat and milk from offspring of cloned animals just last week! gaah.gif Not only that...They also threw in free and unregulated use of nanotechnology without labeling chuck.gif

Quote:Speaking to journalists later on Tuesday morning, EU health and consumer policy commissioner John Dalli said many aspects which had been agreed between the two sides would now be lost.

"These included a legal definition of nano-materials and their mandatory labeling," said the Maltese commissioner, also pointing to mutual agreement for a centralised authorisation procedure to facilitate innovation from the food industry.

Instead, the EU's 1997 regulation on 'novel foods' remains in place, a piece of legislation that says nothing specifically on cloning or the use of nanotechnology.


While the commission does consider products from cloned animals to be 'novel food', and they therefore require pre-market authorisation, milk from the offspring of cloned animals currently needs no special labeling or permission.

They'll ok anything at this point. There's just no way to feed the entire planet anymore without GMO. Be a crying damn shame if maybe they spent some time telling people to quit having so many babies.

This video is the lamest scene in any movie ever, they should trade in those sparkler guns for something with bullets. The funny thing with Logans run was they were in glass domes with trees where the sun was plainly visible.

Yet when they emerge from the city they look at the sun, shade their eyes and ask what it is. dunno.gif Really awful stuff.

The GM genocide: Thousands of Indian farmers are committing suicide after using genetically modified crops

Nightmare on Elm Street’s Dinner Table. Thank you, Monsanto!

Just in case you thought it was fine to eat Genetically Modified foods (better identified as “FrankenFoods”), along comes a study which makes it clear that you are eating this make believe non-food at your own peril and, worse yet, you are feeding it to your kids at their peril as well. It is important to note that Codex Alimentarius, which sets standards for the international trade of food, permits genetically modified foods and makes no effort to limit, control or eliminate them. In fact, the US has been trying for years to prevent the labeling of GM foods and seed in international trade to emulate its domestic policy which prohibits any label indication that foods contain GM ingredients, as 75-80% of all foods sold in the US do.

Now it appears that the increasingly prevalent nightmare of a disease called “Morgellon’s Disease” may be a result of GM crops and food.

Trust me I'm not a fan of genetically modified anything, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it was having the opposite effect of what was intended. Wait, I might be a fan of genetically modified boobs..... Jury is still out on that one.

Quote:The Indiana Business Journal reports that proteins from genetically modified crops are showing up in Indiana waterways.

According to the Journal, the University of Notre Dame and Loyola University looked at 217 streams, drains and ditches near Indiana cornfields and found genetically modified (GM) bug-killing protein in 50 of them.

The protein is in genetically modified corn and other crops that are engineered to produce their own pesticide when insects bite them. But when farmers mow the fields, the residue remains from the crushed plants – and it's finding its way to the waterways.

"The protein is carried to surface water by runoff and by the leaves and stalks that sometimes wash into streams," the Journal said. "And the protein lingers. The study was conducted six months after harvest."

The paper, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, says it is not known whether the trace levels of the protein are a threat to invertebrates in the water.

But either way – it's still poison, and it's a poison that was in 85 percent of the U.S. corn crop last year.

So many things like this are more about control over our lives than trying to help us, it sucks man. As long as farmers plant seed that also make new seed they are to a degree self sufficient, with gmo, you get sterile seed with less yield that cant be made to seed next year, therefore they become reliant on Monsanto, Pioneer or whatever corporate entity they made the mistake of crawling in bed with.

But yes genetically modified tits.. hmm.gif What could go wrong? 37.gif

I agree with most except the part that you say can't feed the planet without GMOs. Fact is, you can feed the planet with non-GMO but it's a fact that GMO decreases production and sterilizes the soil. 1st year, increased production, 3rd year, declining, 7th year, nothing, no crop at all, with GMO plants.

And the bees? Couldn't have anything to do with the US Gub'ment OKing the use of pesticides that are known to be bee toxic could it?

That article is pure horror tissueguy.gif

and here:

Quote:(NaturalNews) Drug and chemical giant Bayer AG has admitted that there is no way to stop the uncontrolled spread of its genetically modified crops.

"Even the best practices can't guarantee perfection," said Mark Ferguson, the company's defense lawyer in a recent trial.
