Japan has canceled an offer to buy U.S. grain after authorities found an unauthorized strain of genetically engineered wheat on a farm in Oregon, with South Korea, China and the Philippines monitoring the situation. The wheat was developed by Monsanto (MON), which could face a hefty compensation bill if the boycott spreads - Bayer CropScience had to pay $750M to crop growers in 2011 over contaminated rice. Wheat futures are -0.6%.

    How excellent that this comes just days after a worldwide March Against Monsatan which has been smugly dismissed by people on this board. You can ignore the truth in my posts. But you cannot for long ignore the consequences of ignoring the truth.

    Looks like Europe and Denmark don't want your garbage either.

    Monsatan is be kept at artificially high levels and when the bottom falls out I will personally celebrate. If anyone on the planet deserves to starve it is Monsatan investors.

    Here's another good article on the EU rejecting Monsatan. You'll note from the comments that once you get outside of this stupid message board that everyone HATES Monsatan.

    Monsanto has polluted the American food supply, and has virtually destroyed unaltered corn. the results of GMO crops and the accompanying round-up overuse is destroying farm land. We will see a falling production level per acre due to the abuse.

    So how does an unauthorized strain of wheat that was never released to the farming community get raised in Oregon? It's akin to the BP oil spill. Lies to cover it up, lies to cover your ass, payments to congressmen to cover it up. The GMO DNA is in the wind and Monsanto is responsible for the mess because they can't control where the wind blows this crap. The farm where this was planted probably didn't buy GMO seed but Monsanto will want a royalty because of the polultion

    Monsanto - the voted the "Most Evil Corporation" on earth,
    http://yhoo.it/11rdguz
    -with a cozy relationship with the USGovt and the FDA almost like IG Farben had with Nazi German regime. Maybe this is more than an analogy. Zyklon B was basically a pesticide and the BT gene in Monsanto corn is a pesticide gene. They want us to consume it.
