Bingo! Not whether you'll absorb and process mRNA. At least there's some possibility those things could happen, although they are also possible with any organism that's NOT engineered. Thus are the results of mutation.



Nope.


Look at Triticum dicoccoides and tell me that looks like amber waves of grain.



Not the same as inserting fish genes into a tomato.


Do you eat fish? Tomatoes?

Nope. Monsanto leaves nothing to chance.

Yep.

Ancient grains of wheat, farmed from ancient wheat grains, today.

Looks Amber to me!

While they're big, I don't think Monsanto has control over mutations in nature. Unless they're a deity, in which case it doesn't matter anyway.

Now compare emmer to what you grow in Kansas. Difference. And that difference comes from the sort of genetic engineering we call 'crossbreeding'.

Monsanto moved on from Agent Orange to bigger things.

Also, yes the modern wheat that is sprayed with pesticides is not
the same chromosone wise as ancient wheat....cross breeding
which is not Genetic Engineering.

It's either that or they engineered the plant to accept the detrimental virus in order to reduce yield and infect humans who consume the plant with something... right?

Trust me, it is your second assertion. The elites have made it clear that they want no only population control but depopulation, and this is one of the many ways they are trying to achieve their goals.

CO2 sequestration is another way for them to lower the global food production. Every research has found that atmospheric CO2 levels at about 1,200 ppm -1,500 ppm are beneficial for most plants and trees, increasing their production from 25%-60%.



Successful indoor growers implement methods to increase CO2 concentrations in their enclosure. The typical outdoor air we breathe contains 0.03 - 0.045% (300 - 450 ppm) CO2. Research demonstrates that optimum growth and production for most plants occur between 1200 - 1500 ppm CO2. These optimum CO2 levels can boost plant metabolism, growth and yield by 25 - 60%.

www.planetnatural.com...

What this means is that with CO2 atmospheric levels at around 1,200ppm -1,500ppm most green biomass on the planet would GROW MORE, GROW STRONGER, and PRODUCE MORE YIELDS, as in MORE FOOD...

Not only that, but it is a known fact that with higher levels of atmospheric CO2 than at present all green biomass makes BETTER USE OF WATER, which means all green biomass use LESS WATER, leaving MORE WATER for humans and animals...


Benefits to Plants

Literally thousands of laboratory and field experiments have conclusively demonstrated that enriching the air with carbon dioxide stimulates the growth and development of nearly all plants. They have also revealed that higher-than-normal CO2 concentrations dramatically enhance the efficiency with which plants utilize water, sometimes as much as doubling it in response to a doubling of the air's CO2 content. These CO2-induced improvements typically lead to the development of more extensive and active root systems, enabling plants to more thoroughly explore larger volumes of soil in search of the things they need. Consequently, even in soils lacking sufficient water and nutrients for good growth at today's CO2 concentrations, plants exposed to the elevated atmospheric CO2 levels expected in the future generally show remarkable increases in vegetative productivity, which should enable them to successfully colonize low-rainfall areas that are presently too dry to support more than isolated patches of desert vegetation.

Elevated levels of atmospheric CO2 also enable plants to better withstand the growth-retarding effects of various environmental stresses, including soil salinity, air pollution, high and low air temperatures, and air-borne and soil-borne plant pathogens. In fact, atmospheric CO2 enrichment can actually mean the difference between life and death for vegetation growing in extremely stressful circumstances. In light of these facts, it is not surprising that Earth's natural and managed ecosystems have already benefited immensely from the increase in atmospheric CO2 that has accompanied the progression of the Industrial Revolution; and they will further prosper from future CO2 increases.

BTW, if you are inside your house, as probably most of you are, and you have either your AC or heater on the levels of atmospheric CO2 that you are breathing now are about 1,000ppm, or more.... Yet ARE ANY OF YOU DEAD?.... Are your pets inside your house dead?... What about your plants inside your house?...


Yet we are being told that by Earth having 380-390 ppm WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!! OH NO, RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!!!!!


CO2 levels are now at around 380-390 ppm and people are being told "this is the end of the world", despite the evidence which shows that during this time that CO2 levels have increased the world has become greener, even though many countries still continue their illegal deforestation practices.

Some idiot will argue the difference between corn in the 1600's and what corn looks like now... If you see someone doing this I GUARANTEE YOU they will leave out that it has been NATURAL SELECTION up untill Monsanto started genetically modifying the #.

The way it should be done!! And has been done for 1000's of years!
The farmers take the best crops and pair them. Those selected corn crops usually MUTATE naturally and for the better!!

TODAY is different. Farmers no longer keep the best crops for the following years pairing. Why is it different? Monsanto of course! They are messing with the plants genetics and reversing the natural ability for crops to become better on their own. Corn, Soy, Beans,Wheat, Grains. Everything we eat will have this Viral factor now.

Find your nearest Organic whole foods store, or organic farmers market. Purchase seed from them and grow everything yourself.

Sure it is, it's just slower and more random. But you're altering the characteristics of organisms by picking and choosing the gene sets.

It is called Pairing for induced mutations.... That is the natural way... Taking the best of the best and letting them cross pollinate. Same plants or different species, does not matter. Roses are the best for doing this but can be done with any plant.


My source for Pairing is Halpin Macmillan Horticulture books among many many others. And real life experience. Not with corn tho. I have been doing it with Cucumber and Zucchini.

And of course, every time you have a mutation in an exon, you can produce oddball never-before-seen proteins. Just like with GE.

A frameshift mutation in an exon is...creative. You can get all sorts of nutty protein fragments.
