>MILKWEED AND GENETICALLY ENGINEERED CORN
>
>
>By Brigitte Mars, for healthshop.com
>Cornell University's entomologist John Losey and colleagues reported
>that pollen from a strain of corn genetically engineered using a gene
>from the organism Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) killed 44 percent of the
>monarch butterflies that were exposed to it. Other butterflies were
>stunted in their growth. Monarch butterflies may be exposed to the
>pollen because their only source of food--milkweed--may often be found
>growing near cornfields. England and India are refusing to allow
>genetically engineered plants to be planted on their soil, yet these
>crops are being planted at a rate of 20 million acres a year in the
>United States. Once this is allowed to proliferate, there is no way to
>prevent pollens spreading to nearby organic crops and causing
>environmental changes that may be unexpected and perhaps detrimental.
>For more information on the benefits of milkweed, visit
