the reason this is in political madness is because the FDA is saying there "are no significant changes" in the new gm wheat, so its safe to not test, while at the same time patenting it as "new"
while at the same time stories are around ats about the "junk dna" that is now only recently "decoded"
in the human genome, that means that the GMO wheat is based on flawed assumptions, as to how DNA works in the first place.

Safe Food Foundation Director, Scott Kinnear, University of Canterbury Professor, Jack Heinemann, and Flinders University Professor, Judy Carman, discuss the potential threats of CSIRO's GM Wheat.

please note this looks to be about a specific strain in question,
but does force me to wonder about the next generation of gmos

if this could "get through" their process then how safe is it really?

GM food isn't safe and never will be and biotech is one of the biggest threats to humanity out of all the threats we are currently facing. Biotech has it's grubby hands in everything. Policy, world economy, FDA and similar agencies in other countries. BAD NEWS.

Good heads up as always xploder.

The whole system is rigged

Monsantos view

"Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA's job."
- Phil Angell, Monsanto's Director of Corporate Communications, in "Playing God In The Garden," by Michael Pollan, NYTs Magazine, 1998.

FDA's view

"Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety."
- FDA Federal Register, Statement of Policy: Foods Derived From New Plant Varieties1, 1992, p. 22991

So whos responsible for the safety of our food ?
The producers say the gov
The gov says the producers
So in 10,20,30 years time ones accountable !
