Unapproved Monsanto GMO Wheat Found in Oregon

A strain of genetically engineered wheat never approved for sale or consumption by authorities was found sprouting on a farm in Oregon, the Agriculture Department said Wednesday.

Biotechnology company Monsanto developed the wheat years ago by but never used it because of market opposition to genetically engineered crops. The most recent field test of such wheat was in 2005.

The genetically modified wheat sprouted this spring in a field that grew winter wheat last year. When the farmer sprayed the so-called volunteer plants with a glyphosate herbicide, some of them unexpectedly survived. Samples were then sent to Oregon State University and to the USDA for analysis.

Testing showed the wheat was a Monsanto-developed strain resistant to glyphosate. The company is assisting in the investigation, the department said, adding that Monsanto tested Roundup Ready wheat varieties—those resistant to the widely used herbicide—in 16 states from 1998 to 2005.

Scuse and Michael Firko, who oversees the USDA's biotechnology approval process, said the department was looking into how the strain appeared on the farm when no seeds should have been available for several years.

damned.gif If regulators didn't approve it, you know this is BAD BAD BAD! Had it been out long enough to cross pollinate with other wheat in the area? They should eradicate every wheat crop within 20 miles of this poison.
How did it get there? wtf2.gif

Gut punch: Monsanto could be destroying your microbiome
http://grist.org/food/gut-punch-monsanto...icrobiome/

First the bad news: The “safest” herbicide in the history of science may be harming us in ways we’re just beginning to understand. And now for the really bad news: Because too much is never enough, the Environmental Protection Agency just raised the allowable limits for how much of that chemical can remain on the food we eat, and the crops we feed to animals — many of which end up on our plates as well. If you haven’t guessed its identity yet, it’s Monsanto’s Roundup, a powerful weed killer........While it’s true that glyphosate the chemical has been the subject of much scientific analysis, it’s also true that farmers don’t use pure glyphosate. They use Roundup on their fields — and Roundup is a product with other “inactive” chemical ingredients. And there is increasing evidence that Roundup as a product is far more toxic than glyphosate on its own because the ingredients interact in troubling ways.

All of which is to say that there’s isn’t really a good health argument in favor of increasing Americans’ exposure to the chemical. There are, however, some pretty compelling reasons not to — and that’s where your microbiome comes into the picture. Even if we aren’t absorbing all the Roundup that’s on the food we eat, we are certainly exposing the residents of our digestive tract to it. And here’s the funny thing. While we don’t have the metabolic process that Roundup disrupts, many microbes do.

So, in short, we may be dousing our interior landscapes with a potent and effective intestinal flora herbicide. Oopsie.

Researchers are only now beginning to explore this idea. There is new research out of Germany that establishes that glyphosate kills many species of beneficial animal gut bacteria while not affecting more harmful gut bacteria, like E. coli and the bacteria that causes botulism, which is apparently at epidemic levels in cattle. And it’s not a stretch to say that it likely has a similar effect on the versions of those bacteria that have colonized us.

And, as Pollan explains, our gut bacteria play a core role in maintaining our health, although in ways that are not at all understood. The research is in its earliest days, but it’s possible that an unhealthy microbiome could contribute to obesity and other diseases, especially those caused by inflammation..........

Yup. They only now start to figure out how important a healthy gut flora is to the well-being of folks and critters.

Probiotics found in natural yogurt could help boost a person’s mood because they affect brain function, according to new research.

Previous studies had shown that beneficial bacteria affected the brains of rats but no research has confirmed that the same occurred in human brains.

The study found that those who ate probiotic yoghurt twice daily for a month showed altered brain function, both in resting brain activity and in response to an 'emotional attention task', which was designed to monitor how the brain responded to certain emotions.

It has been known for some time that symbiotic gut bacteria, the complex ecosystem of microorganisms that live in the human digestive system, promote health by boosting immunity, aiding digestion, as well as maintain a healthy weight and blood pressure.

It has also been known that the brain sends signals to the gut, which is why stress and other emotions can contribute to gastrointestinal symptoms. This study shows that signals travel the opposite way as well.

Genetically mutated wheat resists an herbicide that leads to genocidewtf2.gif

I have avoided all wheat for some time now. Only local baker's bread and imported pasta. I have intestinal tract problems. Anyone wonder why the sudden rise in Crohn's disease? It's a complication described by Edgar Cayce as "leaking gut syndrome." It causes a host of GI tract problems and skin conditions (Eczema and Psoriasis). It's the result of chemicals killing the good intestinal flora leading to intestinal wall permeability.

You should abandon all wheat altogether if you want to get that belly back to a healthy state. It's not only the GMO factor, it has proteins indigestible to humans which weren't even present in old types of wheat such as spelt.

My son has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Nothing I can do about it, told him how to get rid of it, and he'd rather eat horribly and suffer than do anything. You can't help people that that won't help themselves; enjoy your McDonald's shït burgers - not my problem.

I've suffered with Candida for years due to bad gut flora caused by antibiotics. I'm finally getting things back to normal, but it's been a battle for over a year. No wheat, sugar or processed foods.

I feel better than I have since I was in my early 20's.

I didn't know that. Thanks Octo hi5.gif

Wow JR, good that you're feeling better. It's funny that cliche "you are what you eat".

After that post about fireweed, I've been looking to have as much fresh, whole food as possible. Trying to find stuff in my area too. So, three days ago I went on Lake Michigan and caught some trout. Grilled it and felt so good after eating eating it...

Wow! That's awesome! hi5.gif I love trout. What could possibly be better than food you catch or pick yourself? dunno.gif

There's a bunch of info on the wheat issue and it doesn't have to do with gluten really (unless you're gluten intolerant). Try staying off any grains for a few weeks and see if you notice any difference.

If you're in or around Michigan there should be Fireweed around. But so is a lot of other edible stuff! beercheer.gif

That trout looks delicious! hyper.gif Is it rainbow trout? Is it native to lake Michigan? We used to have a range of trouts here to, but unfortunately you have to go way up north or some other wilderness around here to find it these days. They do breed them (rainbows) and put them out in lakes for people to catch, but I hear they don't survive the winters. 13.gif

A rainbow trout and a lake, or "salmon" trout. The lake trout are native. Rainbows came from the Pacific Northwest.

I had to start googling exactly what trouts we have chuckle.gif

Rainbow trouts aren't native here, but we did have both sweet water and salt water Brown trouts, well we still do, but I never ate a wild one. The wild salmon though is the best damned fish I ever had. Up here there's no shrimp or any red food like that for them to eat so the meat is totally white. Omg it's fantastic! drool.gif Fresh smoked. Sweet Jesus! woohoo.gif
