Has everyone heard about the unauthorized, never approved for use, genetically modified wheat getting out of the lab and being found on US farms.  Now Japan doesn't want any of our wheat and the Europeans are testing for it in their grain shipments.

You're still full of it i see.

What about that other thread where everyone, AGAIN, put you in your place. You turned all silent when called out on your lies. And here you feel all comfortable calling someone else a troll?
You need to look in the mirror, there's the real troll.

Awww gee. I took you off ignore . Barely lasted a nanosecond.
I don't post SHILL RHETORIC ,like some people *coughs* ,and I've never trolled anyone ,which the mods can attest .
I also post facts as I know them ,from 30 years experience ,which I doubt you can . You google nonsense,and post it as if you wrote it yourself ,much like bmk there ,who trolls me ,actively . I post ,it makes a snide remark about my livelihood.
Show me where I ever trolled anyone ,and I will take you back off ignore.
Fail ,as usual

Miss me?

Why It Took Decades of Blaming Parents Before We Banned Lead Paint

As with soda, demanding that all mechanisms of harm be completely understood before regulations are put in place is frightening.
David Rosner & Gerald Markowitz Apr 22 2013, 10:33 AM ET

Since the 1920s, the lead industry had organized to fight bans, restrictions, even warnings on paint-can labels. It had marketed the deadly product to children and parents, spreading the lie that lead paint was safe. For decades, paint ads appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, National Geographic, and other national magazines and local newspapers. Coloring books were handed out to children. The industry even sent Dutch Boy costumes to children on Halloween, and printed coloring books that showed children how to prepare it.

Does the Continued Use of Lead in Aviation Fuel Endanger Public Health and the Environment?

Dear EarthTalk: Lead was long ago phased out of automobile gasoline, but it is still in aviation fuel and is now the largest source of lead emissions in the U.S. What’s being done?—L. Eber, Rye, N.Y.

Yes, aviation fuel emerged as the largest source of lead emissions in the U.S. once lead was phased out of automotive gasoline beginning in the 1970s. While jets, which comprise the majority of commercial aircraft, don’t use leaded fuel, smaller, piston-engine planes use enough leaded aviation fuel (nicknamed “avgas”) to account for half of the lead pollution in American skies, making it a real air quality issue.

CPSC Announces Final Ban On Lead-Containing Paint

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 2, 1977 Release # 77-096

WASHINGI'ON, D.C. (Sept. 2) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has culminated a major regulatory proceeding by issuing a final ban on lead-containing paint and on toys and furniture coated with such paint. This action was taken to reduce the risk of lead poisoning in children who may ingest paint chips or peelings.
Until now, the maximum level of lead allowed in consumer paints has been 0.5 percent. CPSC has lowered this amount to 0.06 percent, a level conforming with the maximum permissible under the Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention Act. This Act, administered primarily by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, prohibits application of lead-based paint to housing constructed or rehabilitated with federal assistance.
Exempted from the new ban are mirrors backed with lead-containing paint which are part of articles of furniture, as well as artists' paints and related materials. Also exempted, provided they bear specified cautionary labeling, are certain agricultural and industrial coatings, touch-up coatings for appliances and lawn and garden equipment, graphic arts coatings, and certain coatings for powered model aircraft.
This ban under the Consumer Product Safety Act will take effect 180 days after publication September 1 in the Federal Register and will apply to products manufactured on and after that date.

An important step in the understanding of childhood lead poisoning occurred when toxicity in children from lead paint was recognized in Australia in 1897.[37] France, Belgium, and Austria banned white lead interior paints in 1909; the League of Nations followed suit in 1922.[38] However, in the United States, laws banning lead house paint were not passed until 1971, and it was phased out and not fully banned until 1978.[38]
The 20th century saw an increase in worldwide lead exposure levels due to the increased widespread use of the metal.[168] Beginning in the 1920s, lead was added to gasoline to improve its combustion; lead from this exhaust persists today in soil and dust in buildings.[9] Blood lead levels worldwide have been declining sharply since the 1980s, when leaded gasoline began to be phased out.[9] In those countries that have banned lead in solder for food and drink cans and have banned leaded gasoline additives, blood lead levels have fallen sharply since the mid-1980s.[169]
The levels found today in most people are orders of magnitude greater than those of pre-industrial society.[21][109] Due to reductions of lead in products and the workplace, acute lead poisoning is rare in most countries today; however, low level lead exposure is still common.[170] It was not until the second half of the 20th century that subclinical lead exposure became understood to be a problem.[158] During the end of the 20th century, the blood lead levels deemed acceptable steadily declined.[171] Blood lead levels once considered safe are now considered hazardous, with no known safe threshold.[33][172]

In a breaking development, the FBI confirms that 1,500 GM Sugar Beet plants were destroyed this month in Oregon, in what they are calling an act of "Economic Sabotage."

I couldn't find an article about the wheat but I found one where they burnt GM sugar beets.

Interesting chart on this site about what employees of Monsanto that use to work for the federal government.  The article is from 6/21/13.

You took me off ignore ? Yeah right ... you read every post of me, but you use the "ignore" thing as an excuse so you don't have to answer me when im asking you to back up your claims. Because you can't. You've very transparant like that.  See this part for proof:

Quote

Show me where I ever trolled anyone ,and I will take you back off ignore.
. So im already on ignore now, yet you'll still read my posts eh? But you'll only grace me wiht a reply if im blowing smoke up your ass.  That's right. If im throwing facts in your face and asking you to be prove yourself you go all silent and claim to everyone you had to put me on ignore. Poor lil victim Simbi. Crying home to mommy going : "mommy mommy, ppl don't believe every word i say juts because i said it. They want me to back up what i say, so i don't wanna talk to them anymore".

Which brings me to the you being a troll part. You keep posting the same crap stories that you claim to be fact because "it was your limited experience", and when offered with actual counterfacts and arguments you simply call that person a troll and/or put them on ignore. That's trolling Simbi, or rather spamming and acting like a lil whiny brat. But i understand "troll" is a trendy term now, so you of course will take full advantage of that.

As you said yourself:

Quote

I also post facts as I know them ,from 30 years experience
.
Your experience doesn't make anything fact. If you wanna talk about your experiences there's a "Sightings, reports, experiences" section on this forum. Knock yourself out.
Googling nonsense? Giving actual back up claims through a myriad of sites is nonsense to you? This proves the entire point that you are troll who only wants to post crap to get attention.

How narcisstic are you to keep insisting to everyone that what you experience is the absolute truth? And if someone doesn't want to join you in your self-created bubble of a world then you put them on ignore and/or call them a troll. LIke i said, you're full of it. Get over yourself already.

Ok, explain me who was responsible for annual 16000+ (that number makes 1 suicide every 32 minutes) farmer suicides before GM?

I miss cornflakes sometimes but when I do eat it, I don't ever go back for seconds the next day.  It's not deliberate, I just don't get the same enjoyment from corn based foods I think, plus the cramps from fresh corn - I miss corn on the cob and that I simply don't think I can have anymore.
