Well there’s more news on the GMO front which many of you kindly shared with me, including our friend at The Byte Show, George Ann Hughes. It seems there may be a nasty virus in many GMO foods and crops:
Now in case you missed it, the culprit, once again, would appear to be in the main our the good fiends… er…. friends, at Duponzanto:
This alteration is present in most of the widely-grown GMOs in commercial use today, including both NK603 and MON810 corn, as well as Roundup-Ready soybeans, all of which are produced by Monsanto. And researchers have found that this rogue gene can induce unintended phenotypic changes, which can involve serious physical and biochemical mutations, in organisms.
The presence of Gene VI basically leaves transgenic crops defenseless against both pathogenic and viral invaders, and is believed to cause aberrant gene expression in crops that possess it. This means the entire genetic sequence of a plant can mutate as a consequence of Gene VI, resulting in random protein production within plant cells, indiscriminate gene expression throughout the organism, and even growth deformities.
