Reuters reported on Friday that a farmer found 22 unapproved GMO wheat plants in a field that has not been planted since 2015. Federal and state officials are now conducting an investigation.According to the Associated Press, “Federal officials said they were working with the farmer to ensure that none of the modified wheat is sold. Out of caution, the agency said it is holding and testing the farmer’s full wheat harvest, but so far it has not found GMOs.”The GMO wheat, or MON 71700, is resistant to the herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s flagship weedkiller Roundup. The USDA found no evidence of the wheat in commerce and the Food and Drug Administration concluded that the wheat poses no threat if it turned up in our food supply.Monsanto said in a statement to the AP that the wheat plants were used in field trials in the Pacific Northwest from 1998 to 2001 but never commercialized. It is currently unclear how the plants got to the field in Washington State.
Monsanto cannot control its monster. Do you have gut issues? Have you ever thought it might be due to the crap you’re eating that is Monsanto’s legacy? The corn, the wheat, the soy beans – they’re in everything and they’re all more than 90% GMO. Consider it.
