Most people won't think anything about this article, but I believe it is something to be alarmed about. If there is such genetically altered plants
growing outside of a controlled atmosphere, what would be the repercussions to the the current ecosystem surrounding these plants?
A study published by the online journal PLoS ONE reports that genetically engineered canola endowed with herbicide resistance have been found growing
outside of established cultivation regions along roadsides across North Dakota. These "escaped" plants were found state-wide and accounted for 45% of
the total roadside plants sampled.
I also found this article from GMO Compass, which also speaks about herbicide resistant crops.
I suppose there is not much to be concerned about right now, but as with a lot of things, if this goes unnoticed and not dealt with, what would the
out come be? Anyone remember that old movie creepshow where the character Jordy Verril (played by Stephen King) found a meteor out on his farm, and it
turned him into a plant? I couldn't help but think about that movie haha....but seriously, I was wondering what others think about this. Thank you,
and good day.
I AM SORRY, I FOUND A PREVIOUS THREAD ABOUT THIS SUBJECT, AND I SUPPOSE THIS WOULD BE CONSIDRED A DOUBLE THREAD. PLEASE DELETE IF DEEMED
