Wheat, a creeping death?

23 10 11 - 06:14

Possibly-but-maybe-and-maybe-not-well-could-be department:

If you held up a conventional wheat plant from 50 years ago against a modern, high-yield dwarf wheat plant, you would see that today’s plant is about 2½ feet shorter. It’s stockier, so it can support a much heavier seedbed, and it grows much faster. The great irony here is that the term “genetic modification” refers to the actual insertion or deletion of a gene, and that’s not what’s happened with wheat. Instead, the plant has been hybridized and crossbred to make it resistant to drought and fungi, and to vastly increase yield per acre. Agricultural geneticists have shown that wheat proteins undergo structural change with hybridization, and that the hybrid contains proteins that are found in neither parent plant. Now, it shouldn’t be the case that every single new agricultural hybrid has to be checked and tested, that would be absurd. But we’ve created thousands of what I call Frankengrains over the past 50 years, using pretty extreme techniques, and their safety for human consumption has never been tested or even questioned. - MacLeans

Dear Prozak:
Could you please review Mastodon’s first two albums so everyone at this site stops insulting me please?

I am a Hessian just like you. Just because I like Gojira, Mastodon and Krallice does not give anyone the right to exclude me from this site. Thank you.
