Round-Up Ready Wheat in Oregon NOT APPROVED


Mufson, S. (30 May 2013) Unapproved genetically modified wheat from Monsanto found in Oregon field. The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/unapproved-genetically-modified-wheat-from-monsanto-found-in-oregon-field/2013/05/30/93fe7abe-c95e-11e2-8da7-d274bc611a47_story.html?wpisrc=nl_headlines

[Excerpted] Japan, the largest market for U.S. wheat exports, suspended imports from the United States and canceled a major purchase of white wheat on Thursday after the recent discovery of unapproved genetically modified wheat in an 80-acre field in Oregon.

How the altered crop made its way to the Oregon field remains a mystery. The strain was developed by Monsanto to make wheat resistant to the company’s own industry-leading weed killer. Monsanto tested the type of altered seed in more than a dozen states, including Oregon, between 1994 and 2005, but it was never approved for commercial use.

Yet the Agriculture Department reported that recent tests identified the strain after an Oregon farmer trying to clear a field sprayed Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup, and found that the wheat could not be killed.... [end]

Majia here: Round-Up ready seeds the FDA wouldn't approve?

The FDA is notoriously LAX so the Monsanto GM wheat must be more toxic than the typical Round-Up ready seeds, which have been documented in repeated experiments to CAUSE TUMORS, BLOOD SUGAR PROBLEMS, AND REPRODUCTIVE FAILURES.

Here is the latest study to date on the dangers of Round-Up:
