Lack of regulation of GE crops a concern for scientists

Friends of Dr Thierry Vrain

Dec 15, 2013 — Vrain said scientists knew that would happen right from the start. For every new insecticide, it takes roughly five to 10 years before insects become resistant. The same process is at work when bacteria become resistant to an antibiotic. Half of the acreage in the United States is infested with one of the super weeds and they’ve made their way into Canada from Ontario west to Alberta.

Why one might wonder is it a good idea to use a product with legal requirements a farmer cannot save increasingly expensive seed for a product which is destined to not only not work long term but cause an evolution in weeds to occur which clearly selects much larger more fit weeds to eventually prosper.

Caroline Zentner lethbridge herald czentner@lethbridgeherald.com Two scientists are on a cross-country tour speaking out against genetically engineered crops and the use of hormones in raising animals. Thierry Vrain, a retired soil biologist and genetic engineer who worked for Agriculture Canada for 30 years, wanted to grow a big garden when he retired on Vancouver Island.
