Like I said. Nonsense. Disinfo to make the anti-gmo crowd look ridiculous? I guess that's a possibility.
What is particularly scary about this is that the new “Arctic apples” will act like food that can be found at McDonald’s which doesn’t breakdown or decompose naturally as it should, causing concern amongst some as they wonder how the bodies digestive tract will handle the long-living artificially designed food.
I value life, as long as it is respected. Look at it today, Industrialized mass slaughter, what makes a human life different from any other, how do we look upon captivation on innocent humans? Yet we do it in mass scales on every other specie and call it modernized. We outlived our function, so i think monsanto is the greatest idea ever existed.

Me and my family participated in the March Against Monsanto year before last. There were literally hundreds, if not over a thousand people there. The only thing scarier than Monsanto....was the media blackout. I even contacted all the local papers to point out their oversight and there was still wasn't a peep about it. Sure there was an article about some old guy that fabricated a military career....but not one word about a major protest in downtown Ft. Worth.
* and interesting side note- I was going through some old magazines in the garage from like, the 70s and there are Monsanto ads bragging about how their chemically developed/fabricated carpets can last for generations. Now is that really who you want making your food?

We cannot grow natural seed on GM contaminated soil.
How do GM plants contaminate soil?
A round-up ready feild will kill anything that is not sold by Monsanto. That does not sound contaminated to you?
Then there is cross contamination. Plants that get pollinated through wind or insect are being contaminated by gmo versi9ns of their kind and farmers not intending to put GMO on the market have no control over the matter.
In GM crop fields, pollen drift and insect pollination create obvious problems for nearby non-GM or organic crops. Sugar beet, Maize and oil seed rape pollen is light enough to travel long distances. Unfortunately identifying cross contaminated plants is only possible by laboratory testing.
Wheat is a crop of huge commercial importance. Wheat mostly self-pollinates and its pollen is quite heavy, meaning that it does not tend to drift far, but it still can, especially because wheat is a relative of some grasses that can act as recipients for its pollen and this is known as horizontal gene transfer.
Is Prevention Possible?
Because of the inevitability of contamination of non-GM crops with GM pollen, the EU has established recommendations for thresholds of these inevitable contaminations. It also has guidance for buffer zones.
I worry I may be in for a long one with you after calling you "the old guy" in another thread earlier.
To be clear, the field itself will not kill anything. The crop is "round up ready" meaning you can spray it and it won't die. Canola is a problem in town as it grows in the cracks of the sidewalks and how do you kill it?
If people are worried about GMOs, they should be prepared to give up A LOT of food and drinks!
The feild itself is going to kill anything non GMO. it is full of pesticides.
I guess if you see weeds in your sidewalk a "problem" then there is nothing anyone can say to appease your demand for a more sterile environment or less work on your hands. You know you can just pick weeds right? And when they come back, you pick them again.
Our core research and development interests include cancer cell signaling mechanisms and oncogenic drivers, cancer stem cells, mechanisms of drug resistance, and technologies that enable selective drug delivery to tumor tissues. These foundational efforts are complemented by growing research interests in emerging areas of cancer biology including cancer metabolism and epigenetics. One key technology focus is advancing the next wave of ‘antibody drug conjugates’, which are targeted therapies that combine the specificity of an antibody with the cancer cell-killing power of a chemotherapy.
