Million $ Research Finds New GMO Wheat is an ~Epic Fail~!!!
(NaturalNews) What's it going to take for Genetically-Modified-Organisms
proponents to realize that efforts to alter food are not only damaging to health but are wasting millions of dollars... money which could otherwise be spent on preserving the planet instead of destroying it?
Sadly, it's a routine that many people are compelled to tinker with, sinking big bucks in an effort to modify the foods you eat. It recently reared its ugly head when researchers from Rothamsted Research in England spent more than $4.6 million on a project dubbed "whiffy wheat." Designed with the hopes of emitting an odor to deter crop-destroying aphids, it was initially successful in the laboratory environment. However, when tested outdoors, pests such as blackfly and greenfly didn't respond as hoped and still ruined the crops. It's a finding that's been discovered time and again: Genetically-Modified
crops don't work, and often fail to keep pests away any more than conventionally grown foods.(1)
The findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports in June 2015. Titled "The first crop plant genetically engineered to release an insect pheromone for defence," it blatantly states that the project was a failure. The journal notes the following:
Aphid infestation levels in field plot trials were recorded on a weekly basis throughout the growing season in spring 2012, and in spring and autumn 2013. In both years, there was no significant difference in aphid populations between the plots with untransformed and transformed wheat. The number of parasitized aphids was not different between treatments.(2)
All of the lab testing, spraying and changing of our environment is throwing our ecosystem and health out of whack. Unfortunately, many researchers and corporations refuse to see the truth. Instead, they drive the nail deeper, determined to control that which was never meant to be controlled.
