ALL WE ARE IS WHEAT IN THE WIND

Farmers all over North America are worried about what will happen if
Monsanto’s application for genetically engineered wheat is approved. Since
wheat pollen travels on the wind, the engineered genes are certain to
eventually spread throughout the wheat growing region, thus closing many
foreign markets–even to farmers who choose to grow conventional or organic
wheat. In fact, tests are showing that the US wheat supply is already
contaminated. Genes from GE corn and soybeans that have passed through
the same grain-handling facilities are showing up in unmilled wheat and
in flour. “We’ve already got GM contamination in wheat in small levels
from non-GM sources,” said one U.S. milling source. “If we can’t keep
the corn and soybeans out of the wheat, how are we going to keep the GM
wheat out of the wheat?”
