GMO Crops – Was I Asleep At The Wheel ?

I must have been asleep at the wheel the day United States Department of Agricultural (USDA) replaced the term GMO with Biotech crops.

Source U.S, China making progress on biotech crop talks: USDA’s Vilsack

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said “The United States and China are making progress in talks over Beijing’s acceptance of new biotechnology for crops.

Biotech crops are a key trade issue between the countries because China has rejected more than 1 million tons of U.S. corn containing traces of a type of genetically modified corn, Agrisure Viptera, in the past year. The strain, developed by Syngenta AG, is approved for planting in the United States but not for import by Beijing.

  1. Reminds me of that George Carlin bit:
    “Sometime during my life toilet paper became bathroom tissue. . . . Sneakers became running shoes. False teeth became dental appliances. Medicine became medication. Information became directory assistance. The dump became the landfill. Car crashes became automobile accidents. Partly cloudy became partly sunny. Motels became motor lodges. House trailers became mobile homes. Used cars became previously owned transportation. Room service became guest room dining. Constipation became occasional irregularity. . . .
