cyanide gas grass just cost me the respect of everyone I know!
So this story is going around that some GMO - grass produced a cloud of cyanide and wiped out eighteen cattle, fast.

The story sounds so salacious that I didn't believe it. It blew my mind. But I wanted to make sure it was real. I didn't want to tell everyone I knew about this stunning proof of GMO's dangers until I verified it was credible.

So I find the story carried around many mainstream sites. I watch the news reporters report it. I read hundreds of comments.

I am floored. Its real. GMO crops are mutating and making clouds of cyanide!

I then call everyone I know and tell them about it. They are horrified! We vow to end the GMO industry!

And then... someone tells me. Oh hey, you know Johnson grass makes a lot of cyanide in drought conditions. Its a thing that happens you know...

So, now I research - not the validity of the story- but the fact that totally natural and organic grass just produces lethal levels of cyanide sometimes in drought conditions.

And yeah, I have to call everyone I know and say, "Hey. I'm a total asshole. Nothing interesting about that story at all, except that type of HYBRID grass wasn't known for this fairly common occurrence.

So...

wow.

I am never repeating a story I hear about anything again. Not that I think anyone would listen to me anyway.

Re: cyanide gas grass just cost me the respect of everyone I know!
Wrong conclusion. Yes, other grasses can do this. But ...

THE GM GRASS IN QUESTION WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE THIS CHARACTERISTIC.

The proper conclusion is that they have no freaking idea about the long term consequences of the franken-crops they produce in their labs.

What will we learn about GM food 15 years from now?

Tifton 85 grass is NOT genetically modified it is simply a hybrid.

The author of that article dosn't understand what a "hybrid" is and assumes that it means genetically modified.
A hybrid is simply a cross between two similar varieties...happens in nature all the time.


"Tifton 85 is the best of many F1 hybrids between PI 290884 from South Africa and Tifton 68, a highly digestible but cold susceptible hybrid that was released in 1983."
[link to www.tifton.uga.edu]

"Many hybrids are created by humans, but natural hybrids occur as well."
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

ps:
Just for the record I am an organic farmer and detest the use of gmo's.
