Please let us know what is going on with this story. Cyanide grass, killing cows whether GMO or not is not a good thing and we all need answers.
"Please let us know what is going on with this story. Cyanide grass, killing cows whether GMO or not is not a good thing and we all need answers."Seriously? No powers of discernment? No ability for deductive reasoning? Aren't you saying "Please tell us what we should think because we cannot make up our own minds as to the truth of the matter"?I can't believe the hoopla over this CBS "news" scam. What happened is a NATURALLY OCCURING PHENOMENON. Here is but one source of information: http://www.merckvetmanual.com/mvm/index.jsp?cfile=htm/bc/210800.htmQuoting from that source:"Cyanides are found in plants, fumigants, soil sterilizers, fertilizers, and rodenticides (eg, calcium cyanomide). Toxicity can result from improper or malicious use, but in the case of livestock, the most frequent cause is ingestion of plants that contain cyanogenic glycosides. These include Triglochin maritima (arrow grass), Hoecus lunatus (velvet grass), Sorghum spp (Johnson grass, Sudan grass, common sorghum), Prunus spp (apricot, peach, chokecherry, pincherry, wild black cherry), Sambucus canadensis (elderberry), Pyrus malus (apple), Zea mays (corn), and Linum spp (flax). The seeds (pits) of several plants such as the peach have been the source of cyanogenic glycosides in many cases. Eucalyptus spp , kept as ornamental houseplants, have been implicated in deaths of small animals. The cyanogenic glycosides in plants yield free hydrocyanic acid (HCN), otherwise known as prussic acid, when hydrolyzed by β-glycosidase or when other plant cell structure is disrupted or damaged, eg, by freezing, chopping, or chewing. Microbial action in the rumen can further release free cyanide."Read more from that source. Look up other sources of information. MAKE UP YOUR OWN MINDS. DON'T BE SHEEPLE. As much as we'd like to see Monsanto, Syngenta and other like-minded companies put out of business permanently, THIS IS NOT A CASE OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS SPONTANEOUSLY PRODUCING CYANIDE GAS. Come on, people, put on those thinking caps.
STOP CALLING EVERYTHIING A NATURALLY-OCCURRING PHENOMENON! We are fed up with it! Tell the truth! This stuff is NOT NORMAL....we are being gradually killed off, it is the ultimate agenda, and the animals and plants go first, man is ultimately last. SHUT UP AND STOP LYING.
"STOP CALLING EVERYTHIING A NATURALLY-OCCURRING PHENOMENON!"No! I won't! You can't make me! Nanny nanny boo boo!Oh, and learn how to spell!
