GMO wheat could be the next big thing—or maybe not
Sheave ho! Of the top three grains produced in the U.S., only No. 3 wheat (after corn and soybeans) is not overwhelmingly dominated by genetically modified varieties. In fact, you won’t find GM wheat in the United States at all. Henry Miller of the conservative Hoover Institution (and author of "The Frankenfood Myth") and Colin Carter of University of California-Davis, assert in The Guardian that Monsanto has seen the error of its ways in abandoning development of GM wheat. A Kansas agriculture observer, who asked not to be identified, pointed to what he labeled major contradictions in the piece, such as suggesting that wheat is no longer as profitable even though prices more that tripled. The observer sniffed, “Written by a flack from the Hoover Institution.” Many online commenters agreed. (The Guardian)
