SCIENTISTS WARN EPA ABOUT MONSANTOíS GENETICALLY MODIFIED CROPS
Claiming nationís food crop is at risk

March 20, 2012




One of the worst Superweeds: "Palmerís pigweed" is now (Monsanto made) Roundup resistant, toxic to livestock animals and can survive droughts and blistering heat. CLICK TO ENLARGE
(NATIONAL) -- A group of scientists is calling for federal action by the Environmental Protection Agency to deal with what they believe is a threat to the nation’s food supply posed by Monsanto’s genetically modified GMO crops

“The groups of 22 academic corn experts are drawing attention to the immense failure of Monsanto’s genetically modified corn, which is developing mutated and resistant insects as a result of its widespread usage,” says a new report in nationofchange.org.

Corn is a critical food staple for the nation and is also heavily used in ethanol production, animal feed and more.

As GM corn edges all other varieties out – it presently has 94 percent of the supply of corn in America - scientists are growing concerned about the future of corn production.

The report quotes Joseph Spencer a corn entomologist with the Illinois Natural History Survey, part of the University of Illinois.

He says what’s happening is not a surprise and it needs to be addressed by the EPA.

The groups of experts sent a letter March 5th to the EPA explaining their concerns regarding long-term corn production prospects in light of GMO crops failures – specifically what they view as a lack of protection presented by GMO crops against rootworms.

“The EPA has already acknowledged that Monsanto’s GMO crops are creating resistant rootworms, which are now ravaging the GMO crops as they mutate to the bio pesticide used known as Bacillus thuringiensis (BT). The EPA found that the resistant rootworms, which are evolving to resist the insecticide, are currently found Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Nebraska,” says the report.

Among the concerns is that GMO crops are doing the opposite of their supposed purpose — leading to more damage from rootworms, not less, as they become mutated to resist the defense of the crops.
