Human genes engineered into experimental GMO rice being grown in Kansas
This is the Natural News headline I found in my email box this morning. I was still feeling kinda warm and glowy about getting a nice acknowledgement/award from a fellow blogger yesterday. But it’s back to business for me today.
I have so many concerns about this that I can’t keep count. The first one is that now I’m going to need to track down the source of this information and find out if it is just the rantings of the merchants of chaos or does it have some basis in truth?
Then if there is any truth to it, well, obviously there are lots of concerns such as the fact that plants and crops don’t keep to themselves exactly. The wind blows—things fly through the air—mix around—and get into other plants and crops. I have seen quite a bit recently about “traces of GMO” in non-GMO foods.
There is the fact that currently the FDA doesn’t make food manufacturers label their products GMO. Supposedly organic food would not be GMO but what if the organic farm is downwind from this place in Kansas?
I worry about the children who will eat this stuff and the mothers and fathers who will eat it and then produce children. And then of course there’s the whole idea of some sort of cannabalism and that is a disturbing thought. Who comes up with the idea to do something like this in the first place?
That is what I want to know.
