You mean that little bit of GMO wheat that was found in one field in Oregon? That wasn't "cross contamination". That was some full fledged GMO wheat plants that showed up in the field. That was contamination.
First of all I didn't make up what my doctor told me and second of all there have been cases of cross contamination of wheat products
Why do you believe that?
I believe they did do GMO wheat trials which have been found in cross contamination of wheat crops in other areas
Yes, you said that. And, for some reason you're convinced that GMO wheat causes you problems while non-GMO wheat doesn't.
I personally believe that the contamination of it does happen and has happened.

There is not enough known about gmo's and their affect if any on our bodies.
Not to mention that their pesticides are killing off the honey bees, among other things.
They are evil, the only people they help are themselves.
Their cries of "we are helping to feed the poor" fall on deaf ears. They are making people poor, homeless, and in the end quite possibly sick.edit on 3-10-2013 by brandiwine14 because: (no reason given)
The existence of genetically modified corn was analyzed in tests conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the company Epicyte. In announcing his success in a 2001 press conference, the president of Epicyte, Mitch Hein, said his company’s transgenic corn plants, “create anti-sperm antibodies.” Hein said the creation of transgenic organisms and their use in food could be used as a tool to solve the overpopulation problem. In 1996, after the creation and use of genetically modified organisms in corn and other grains sent to South America, Mexico and Africa, analysis revealed that, almost immediately after the introduction of Bt corn in the United States, the birth rate had fallen in an accelerated way; only three years after the introduction of GMOs into the food supply.Hein explained that they had taken antibodies from women with a rare condition known as immune infertility, using genetic engineering techniques, had inserted the genes into ordinary corn seeds used to produce corn plants. In this manner, in reality they produced a concealed contraceptive embedded in corn meant for human consumption. “Essentially, the antibodies are attracted to surface receptors on the sperm,” said Hein. “They latch on and make each sperm so heavy it cannot move forward. It just shakes about as if it was doing the lambada.” The moral and ethical issues of feeding it to humans in Third World poor countries without their knowing it countries he left out of his remarks. The questions raised by spermicides hidden in GMO corn provided to starving Third World populations through the generosity of the Gates’ foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and Kofi Annan’s AGRA" are many and profound.
Funny thing though, if I eat organic wheat products after a gluten free detox they don't seem to bother me but any GMO wheat product puts me in severe pain ASAP..for me that's all the proof I need. Nuff said.

Can you provide us with those studies which show a link between Bt Corn and fertility?
Can you provide some evidence that that particular strain of "contraceptive corn" was ever put into production, that it was ever put on the market?
Translation: you don't know what difference may or may not cause your problem or lack of problem.
Obviously it was not labelled, I never stated that it was. I believe it is a root cause of the reactions and I'll certainly agree it could be in tandem with other contamination/ingredients in the products themselves.
Canada has had issues with flax GMO contamination, etc. on imports from the States.
You are entitled to your opinion.
I still stand by my belief that GMO crops in general are not something that should be the market at all as not enough long term testing of the effects have been produced by independent non-biased studies.
I spliced that link together. That is not a study, it is idle speculation. A typical statement:
I tried linking a study regarding the weed killer modification in GMO crops and bee deaths due to the the intestinal systems being affected directing on pollination but I'm having some difficulty with my link embedding apparently.
As seen above, it is certain that the digestive shutdown is due to hard material in the digestive tract that compromises the immune system.
Ok. You trust governments which make health decisions based on politics rather than science. Got it.
I trust all the countries That have banned BT corn for use or cultivation
Bt corn has been prohibited in some places, yes. I was talking about the "contraceptive corn". Tell me, what has happened with birth rates in the countries where GM corn has been prohibited? Here's one:
why would they waste the time or effort to ban it if it was never marketed or produced..
That article is sort of old. Here's an update.
add another to the list
“Besides according to the official opinion of the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), as well as a number of independent experts, the results of studies published in the Food and Safety Toxicology Magazine on September 19, 2012 can not be considered as reliable” - added in the report of Rospotrebnadzor.
There are some very good uses for genetically modifying or altering plants. But they could also just provide the vitamin supplement too, and alot cheaper than altering the rice, eh.
