    To Carol.mallory-smith@oregonstate.edu Today at 1:19 PM

    Carol Mallory-Smith, a professor of weed science at Oregon State University, said the rogue wheat — and other cases in which genetically modified crops have wandered far afield from their designated research plots — show that APHIS needs to monitor field trials of genetically modified crops more carefully.

    People also need to realize that plant genes are likely to persist in the environment once they’re planted in open fields, she says.

    “Any time a new trait is put into the environment, there’s really no way of retracting that gene or bringing it back and saying, ’We’ve changed our mind,’ " she says.


    Hi Carol,

    Thanks for writing this I have been looking into the 120,000+ antelope die-off in Kazakhstan. I wrote this letter to Richard Kock last week.

    Hi Richard,


    Recently read your thoughts on the saga die-off. "The animals in these outbreaks were eating mainly wheat grass from my limited examination of grazed plants and a few more of their normal food plants – no evidence for pure plant toxicity remember they are highly selective feeders! But pasture analysis would help including toxicology to rule this out and also looking at other potential toxic factors.”


    Since most of the wheat is grown in Kostanai and that is where most animals expired it seems to be relevant when looking for cause.


    I also looked into the the who, what, when and where of gmo wheat being produced in Kazakhstan. It was devastating to say the least. Just one look at the corruption that has enabled Monsanto to procure gmo wheat and then pass off other wheat crops as organic “was” evidenced here by this purveyor: http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=10109&SearchText=wheat+kazakhstan

    The wheat that is described below was copied and pasted yesterday and is no longer on the alibaba website today? Just looked for this variety and it is gone!

    Feed WheatFeed Wheat can get all the nutrients we need from food alone

    Country of origin: KazakhstanType of oil: Refined oilIngredients: GMORefined: Tare- 5 litrovye bottles


    Since the antelope were grazing on wheat before dying it suggests poisoning as the jaws were clenched with foaming at the mouth. Kazakhstan has been Monsanto’s new frontier for gmo wheat as crops here in the US (possibly field trials or release) are found to be contaminated with gmo’s due to export inspections.


    Thanks for your time,

    Best regards,

    Susan

    Temecula. Hi,
    I am a college student who wants to represent the organic food industry along with several other causes. I worked for natural supplement companies for 3 years. GMO foods and the supplement industry go hand in hand this allowing me to gain more knowledge and spread the truth about GMO’s.
    Two organizations that I’ve reached out to already are Food and Water Watch and Organic Consumers. There are only a few people working at the LA offices so it is hard to find time to talk to them regularly. My goal for them is to spread the knowledge of their causes across the Inland Empire.


    Here are some others ideas too. We have a local newspaper called Healthy Times that is distributed to gyms, health/supplement stores, etc. That would be a great source to spread info!! Here is their link. http://healthytimesnewspaper.com/
    I really want to get involved with working with local city council members throughout the I.E. Let’s collaborate on some ideas to see what we can get going to establish a movement in this area. Some of the main health food stores in the I.E. are Clarks, Sprouts Farmers Market, Whole Foods, Trader Joes and Vitamin Shoppe. I know there are a some independent ones too like Organic Roots in Temecula and Health Zone in Sun City. There are healthy restaurants too in Temecula that are worth talking to like E.A.T, Bushfire Grill, Burger Lounge and others. We should organize an event and see if these people can donate food! So many ideas are flooding my mind lol.

    google Dr. Thierry Vrain

    He maintains that label GMO’s are a diversion from the real danger: glyphosate aka Roundup

    Labeling GMO’s will not protect since they are drenching non GMO crops just before harvest with pesticide/antibiotic roundup.

    We need to shift focus.

    Dear LabelGMOs.org,


    Did you know that GMOs could cause numerous health issues? Did you also know that if you eat too many GMOs, you could possibly die. They also harm our environment. GMOs are genetically modified organisms that can be found in your food. People make them by cross spreading foods DNAs to make them a new type of food. I think that the most important aspect of the “food system” for consumers to be concerned about are GMOs because they can cause health issues, they can create superbugs, and they harm the environment.

    GMOs can cause many health issues. For instance, they can cause many types of cancer and also illnesses. According to an article titled 10 reasons to avoid GMOs, “Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996.” (http://www.responsibletechnology.org/10-Reasons-to-Avoid-GMOs) This proves that when GMOs were invented, people didn’t realize what they were eating and started to get sick. This also proves that GMOs are unhealthy for our bodies therefore people should stop creating them. It is possible to die if you eat too many GMOs.

    10 Problems Genetically Modified Foods Are Already Causing states that GMOs can create superbugs. Superbugs are bugs that survive the chemicals and toxins sprayed on the foods. According to the article, 10 Problems Genetically Modified Foods Are Already Causing, “The good thing about designing a plant with an insecticide gene is it eliminates a lot of unwanted bugs. The downside is that only the strongest insects survive, resulting in a new class of superbugs resistant to both the crops’ implanted toxins and spray-on chemicals.” (http://listverse.com/2013/06/22/10-problems-genetically-modified-foods-are-already-causing/) So, that means that the chemicals are sprayed on the foods. The chemicals kill off the small unwanted bugs but the stronger bugs that are worse survive the chemicals and stay on the crops. Also, the methods GMO companies use to pest proof their crops kills bees and butterflies.


    As stated above, GMO chemicals harm the environment. The environmental impact of GMOs states that the chemicals used to make GMOs kill bees and butterflies. As seen in the article, “Bees are hugely important in the pollination of many food crops, but are unfortunately extremely endangered by modern agricultural techniques, such as GM crops. Monarch butterflies are specifically at risk from GMO maize plants.” (http://www.onegreenplanet.org/animalsandnature/the-environmental-impact-of-gmos/) So this means that the agriculture techniques are dangerous to both the Monarch butterfly and the bees.


    GMOs have now changed the way we look at our household food. They are a big problem to our Earth. GMOs affect our health and our environment. Most people don’t even know what they are putting in their own mouths. Since GMOs can cause cancer they should be illegal. I am now concerned to what others and I have been eating.


    Sincerely,

    HI, My name is Jody Shepard, I live in Antioch, California, but have lived all over the USA.. I just had the pleasure of reading a study in the toxicology report in the Mother earth magizine.. I have had almost every one of these health issues for the past 10 years, but severely over the past 4 years.. My pancreas has stopped processing, I take Zen pep (5-6 a day) my EPO levels are low without reason and my red blood cells multiply, I have had ten phlebotomies in the past 2 years to control, they say i have erythromytosis not polycethemia vera, because of a bone marrow biopsy ,I spent 14 days in the hospital with a small bowel obstruction which was actually a leaky gut, I have been given a crohns diagnosis, & I have skin rashes and migraines.. I have blamed it on being poisoned for years but I didn’t know the connection, I blamed mainly tomato, potato & yeast products… It took food journaling for months to figure out anything from a box or processed food was responsible..what can I do to help you,?? I want to stop this poison from hurting our future generations..I have years of documented doctors and hospital visits including UCSF for stomach issues, & skin issues.. I think there has to be a way to start a class action suite, or at least get warnings on foods like on cigarettes, warning people of these chemicals.. my cell number is 6782967348 if I can do anything at all.. I felt I really needed to reach out to you.. Thank you for your time, Jody Shepard
