I guess I can be thankful that my daughter is allergic to wheat, corn, soy and all that garbage. We can do without just fine. We grow our own veggies - as organic - as possible. No Monsanto can be found near my garden!!
I went so far as to STOP the "moth" spraying ( It is a water-based formulation of bacteria and chemicals. The "active ingredient" is Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner variation kurstaki - Btk) by CROP DUSTER of our neighborhood by the dept of natural resources in 2011. What a crock! Moths. Going to spray HOMES, YARDS, SCHOOLS, KIDS WAITING FOR BUS IN MORNING, with btk. Actually, it is FORAY 76B and hardly "harmless."
Claims it is genetically MANIPULATED not genetically modified!
Now? I hear the deptofdefense is going here and there to see how far this "harmless" bacteria (which is in the Foray product) has spread. poppycock. We have NO ISSUE with the moth and this was the first time in my life I witnessed the crop dusting of ANY residential subdivision with a pesticide. I didn't like it. Our street was spared due to the health issues of my daughter and neighbors who are on oxygen - for the spray can be troublesome for those with allergies or lung issues. I DID THE RESEARCH and alerted the schools, the day cares, churches and neighbors. Many people just didn't care. They felt it was a GOOD thing to have poison rain on them. To kill a bug.
I don't believe the story of an evil moth. That the spray was to slow the spread
. I feel it was all dod testing. And the DNR would NOT divulge information about the once made in a monsanto lab btk spray and possible harms, at all.
Such hard sell of the spray, too.
The army once conducted civilian testing of bacteria by breaking light bulbs filled with the bacteria in Manhattan subways back in the late 50s/60s. *There was a series of reports done by Bill Kurtis - very informative-- very hard to find. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciR6BWXjmrA
This is just a new way to do it and give a bs reason: moths. imo
