the insect version of MRSA!
As published in the WALL STREET JOURNAL,
Here's a living example where Monsanto Bt Corn (GE spliced with Bacillus thuringiensis DNA which provides an in-plant pesticide on rootworms and
caterpillars)... has FAILED and the corn plants have lost pest resistance in the WORST way: the rootworms, earworms, and caterpillars in subsequent
generations have developed a mutant strain RESISTANT to Bacillus thuringiensis which had never yet occured before Monsanto splicing the Bt into Corn
genes and upon consumption passing on a Bt resistant strain in subsequent generation.
Great, just great, way to go Monsanto, now farmers cannot rely on the the natural Bacillus thuringiensis toxin naturally present in the soil to help
keep earworms & rootworms at bay... because Monsanto's bT GMO corn has passed on a mutation for resistance to bT toxin to them
same thing likely eventually happen Monsanto GE bees resistant to this herbicides, pesticides, & parasite - it will likely pass on resistance into the
parasites, ie to herbicides/pesticides - not just resistance TO the parasite by the bees.
Monsanto - getting away with one mutant ecological disaster after another
EPA: Monsanto GMO Corn Failing, Resistance Evolving
Severe crop damage to GMO Monsanto BT corn from rootworms which have developed resistance to BT has prompted the EPA to issue a memo to
Monsanto demanding a remedial action plan that includes using conventional pesticides, crop rotation and GMO crop free refuges. Because GMO corn, and
Roundup used on it, accounts for 41% of Monsanto's profits, Monsanto's stock price plunged on the news. Monsanto continues to claim that there is
no scientific evidence of developing resistance despite EPA's memo and multiple EPA confirmed reports from multiple states.
^ hey the last part of quote in bold sounds alot like InfiniteLoop!
The EPA has determined that resistance to Monsanto's BT genetically modified corn appears to be evolving in the rootworm population. Monsanto
appears to have not expected such rapid failure of this GMO crop, which was just introduced in 2003, to control rootworms. EPA has determined that
Monsanto's response to performance failures it cannot explain are inadequate.
