Infertility and miscarriages in farm animals related to diseased GMO grains.
Diseases may be spreading to other plants. Very credible source.

Guess organic feed is good for critters as well as people.  Hmm, "Organic" in it's more formal term means "no RoundUp", doesn't it?  Still, when faced with a field of guinea grass, one does have a tendency to reach for either RoundUp or some other herbicide.  I suspect a large part of the problem is just the sheer overuse, though.

Chooks, Monosanto , created  GMO grain plants that are resistant to Roundup, their product also .
The idea being famers would plant the Roundup Resistant corn or whatever and then 
the field could be sprayed over and over with Roundup and there would
not be any weeds in the field.
Sounds good huh ? Well if it sounds to good to be true  it probabley is.
The GMO grain now has a disease, a new disease. It can be passed to
other plant families and to mammals....us.

Human Genes Engineered Into Experimental GMO Rice Being Grown in Kansas


Posted May3.2012 – Unless the rice you buy is certified organic, or comes specifically from a farm that tests its rice crops for genetically modified (GM) traits, you could be eating rice tainted with actual human genes. The only known GMO with inbred human traits in cultivation today, a GM rice product made by biotechnology company Ventria Bioscience is currently being grown on 3,200 acres in Junction City, Kansas — and possibly elsewhere — and most people have no idea about it.

A source for major organic rice growers, fortunately there are many options:

Although, for most of us, it may be more feasible to grow organic potatoes in the garden as a source of starch, vitamins and minerals, rather than rice.

Some interesting information:

Wow, sounds encouraging.  What species / variety of canna?  Wikipedia tells me the entire plant is edible.  Are you guys using seeds, shoots and rhizomes? 

This link tells me that C. Indica is relatively nutrient dense.  http://www.feedipedia.org/node/536

Does it seem to be a heavy feeder or water user?  In sticking with the original post, is it easy to find non-GMO varieties?

Thanks.

Seeds of the canna were given to me by someone on the forum.
Right now my memory fails me.

I started the seeds and put the one successful start in a pot an
let it grow for about a year. Then I divided the root and now have a small patch
of  edible canna. I haven't actually tasted one yet.

Bill, the plant I gave Nancy is a Yacon. If you google Yacon 
you will find a lot of info. It produced 25 pounds of tubers off
of one plant for me. The tubers taste a lot like Jicama. They are 
sweet and crunchy when eaten raw. I use them a lot in stir fries.
Anyone who wants a start ? I have lots.
