I didn't even finish reading the article, it's just too gross... I've read about it before though. I really think that this is one of the reasons that ORGANIC food is SO popular.

They just opened a Super Walmart here; the kind with the grocery store in it. I went there last week and they had ORGANIC MILK. Organic Milk. In a WAL-MART. If that's not a sign of people running full speed away from this kind of stuff, I don't know what is.

You would think though that they'd leave the plants alone. It's really disconcerting when you have to read the labels to make sure your rice isn't part human.

if this kind of stuff goes mainstream organic won't help. it's cross-pollination of existing crops that's the issue here. and it's really scary.

I don't know whether to thank you for showing me this or not <_< . This is really scary stuff. Genetic mixing and drugging our food supply. Hmmmm, and Busch beer is the largest consumer of rice? Maybe they could find an alternative to the malt?

EWWWW!! Scary stuff. And (I'm telling my age) it's like life imitating art. Brought to mind two scifi flicks
Attack of the Pod People and Soylent Green.
Scary, scary, scary. And what's worse, I'm a Missourian.

Soylent Green is all but a household word here. My daughter has never forgotten that film and everytime she sees or hears something like this topic story - she just rolls her eyes and says "soylent green!" Claire

Yeah, there is a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff and talk that most people don't know about. Who would want to do research in this area? I certainly wouldn't. In my opinion, I think there are more important things to research, such as finding a cure for cancer.
