This is definately an interesting yet scary article to read. What bothers me the most is the fact that the same company which manucfacters the toxic herbicide, is also the same company which produced the Genetically Modified crops.

I seriously detest the use of biotechnology solely for profit. Advancements in science should be for the benefit of mankind; not corporations.

Much Thanks,

BiologyWebmaster

Been a member of the Mercola news letter for years and I have to say that I now only read a select few as otherwise I would hold too much anger for things and less time for just living.

Just be weary of his stuff, weebity as I have had friends sign off from receiving his newsletter due to contradictions. l receive it as I find some of his stuff interesting.

Bio, I agree with your last statement. I detest them as well. Hopefully the more people become aware of them they will try to stop them from their crap.

G10, I get his newletter everyday along with others so I kind of do a comparison between them all. I know there is some difference in thinking on some of them. However I notice that most of the information is valid. I know alot of stuff long before the mainstream media ever thinks to start talking about it. Like Vitamin D. I knew about that long before it become "popular" with the mainstream. Thanks for the heads up though. I will watch for it.

Oh, and do not save those Ears for the kernels to plant in the Spring ... they may be patented.

LOL...now that is funny! I will heed your advice for next spring.

But seriously, applying patent law towards biological applications is a very complicated field of practice.

Here is the link to an article: http://www.legalmatch.com/law-librar...-patented.html

Quote:
Can I Patent a Living Thing?
It depends. If your invention is a product of nature, it falls under excluded subject matter. However, if your invention does not occur naturally and can only exist through some work on your part, you may be able to get a patent. For example:
■You cannot patent a species of mouse that you find running around your laboratory
■You can patent a genetically engineered mouse that you designed for use in cancer research
■You cannot patent a combination of bacteria with beneficial properties if that combination occurs somewhere in nature
■You can patent a species of bacteria that you genetically alter to solve a common problem if that form does not occur naturally
I personally find biotechnology patent law to be a more complicated subject than studying all of the actual biochemical processes found within the body.

Much Thanks,

BiologyWebmaster
