TextIn the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

Anyone shocked?

Now I've hit the point where I want to know if I'm eating a GMO.

Start labeling the stuff!!!

Not at all. If true, it just confirms yet another "conspiracy theory" isn't as much 'theory' as people try to characterize it.

lol how do you think they can manipulate the genes in the plants they use viruses to insert the genetic material

I'm not shocked, I knew something like this would eventually crop up (no pun). That what happens when you mess around with nature that it will always bite back. (sorry, no pun.).

If a virus is used to place material into an organism, cannot that same virus then transplant material from the organism to us? Or is there a different method used to do the splicing?
