Human genes engineered into experimental GMO rice being grown in Kansas

Vatic Note:   Well, here it is.  Talk about mad cow disease.  That is exactly how mad cow works.  When you feed a cow other cow parts,  included in his regular food, his brain goes wacky.  There is a more scientific explanation, but unfortunately, I am not a scientist,  a science hobbyist, yes, but not a biologist.  That is why this is done in Kansas.  Its where Kansas gave a city to Mexico as a part of their soveriegn territory and did so years ago.  It was suppose to be the inland port for Mexico in the United States, when the super highway was still a wet dream of the elite.

So this below does not surprise me at all.  Also I believe, but am not  sure, that bioweapons facilities have also been relocated there as well.  Now we  know why dead cows were found in the midwest with their brains missing.  Lots going on here.  No one can convince me these people  doing all this are not fully and irretrievably insane.  Now its critical to buy organic, even if more expensive.  The good news is, organic is real food so it takes a lot less to fill you up and thus you spend about the same.  But definitely, move in that direction.  I did, and I have lost a ton of weight, I feel about 20 years younger and while I still get sick, its not near as often.  Definitely buy organic from a trusted source.

Human genes engineered into experimental GMO rice being grown in Kansas

(NaturalNews) Unless the rice you buy is certified organic, or comes specifically from a farm that tests its rice crops for genetically modified (GM) traits, you could be eating rice tainted with actual human genes. The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas -- and possibly elsewhere -- and most people have no idea about it.

Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this "Frankenrice" and using them in pharmaceuticals. With approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Ventria has taken one of the most widely cultivated grain crops in the world today, and essentially turned it into a catalyst for producing new drugs.

Originally, the cultivation of this GM rice, which comes in three approved varieties (http://www.aphis.usda.gov/brs/biotech_ea_permits.html), was limited to the laboratory setting. But in 2007, Ventria decided to bring the rice outdoors. The company initially tried to plant the crops in Missouri, but met resistance from Anheuser-Busch and others, which threatened to boycott all rice from the state in the event that Ventria began planting its rice within state borders (http://todayyesterdayandtomorrow.wordpress.com).

So Ventria's GM rice eventually ended up in Kansas, where it is presumably still being grown for the purpose of manufacturing drugs on 3,200 acres in Junction City. And while this GM rice with added human traits has never been approved for human consumption, it is now being cultivated in open fields where the potential for unrestrained contamination and spread of its unwanted, dangerous GM traits is virtually a given.

"This is not a product that everyone would want to consume," said Jane Rissler from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to the Washington Post back in 2007. "It is unwise to produce drugs in plants outdoors."

Though receiving tens of thousands of public comments of opposition, many rightly concerned about the spread of GM traits, the USDA approved open cultivation of Ventria's GM rice anyway. This, of course, occurred after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had refused approval for Ventria's GM rice back in 2003 (http://www.kansasruralcenter.org/publications/PharmaRice.pdf).

GM 'pharmaceutical' rice could cause more disease, suggests report

Besides the threat of contamination and wild spread, Ventria's GM rice, which is purportedly being grown to help third-world children overcome chronic diarrhea, may conversely cause other chronic diseases.

"These genetically engineered drugs could exacerbate certain infections, or cause dangerous allergic or immune system reactions," said Bill Freese, Science Policy Analyst at the Center for Food Safety (CFS), who published a report back in 2007 about the dangers of Ventria's GM rice.

I cannot express in words how angry this makes me. It should be obvious by now that they are poisoning our food on purpose. The term Soylent Green comes to mind while reading this, but seriously, last night I found out about "Meat Glue" (If you thought "Pink Slime" was bad, check YouTube for Meat Glue). I live in a condo and wish more than anything I had access to a yard because if I did, I would most certainly be doing my best to grow as much of my own food as I could, organically, from heirloom seeds. Until then, I eat as cleanly as I can by eliminating all processed foods, make everyhting from scratch and I quit eating meat months ago. This is madness and must be stopped. ~ Laurie
