Squeeze This Rice, and It Drips Blood

Put away the Halloween costume. This is not a vampire joke. Chinese scientists at Wuhan University have been working on a genetically modified rice that can yield a human blood protein called human serum albumin (HSA).

Normally HSA protein is manufactured by the liver and harvested the same way any other blood ingredients are, through donations. In heavy demand for both medicinal (severe burns, cirrhosis of the liver, hemorrhagic shock) and laboratory (vaccines, drugs, cell cultures) uses, HSA is in perennially short supply.

China has experienced both chronic shortages of HSA and problems with tainted blood supplies. So Professor Daichang Yang, a plant biotechnologist, and his colleagues set to work to develop a rice that could carry the albumin gene.

According to Nature News, HSA-yielding plants such as potatoes have been used for the last two decades, but they have been too high cost and low yield for commercial use. Rice seeds, with their high protein content and high yields, are proving to be attractive carriers of the HSA gene.

Test results are promising. Nature News reports:

    The rice-derived protein was shown to be functionally equivalent to the version found in human blood plasma. Not only were the two chemically and physically identical, but they were also similar when tested for medical efficacy and immune reactivity. In rats with liver disease, both types of HSA proved equally effective in relieving symptoms associated with cirrhosis. And rats that were given rice-derived HSA showed no stronger immune reaction than animals that had been given the plasma-derived version.

    Yang is hoping the US Food and Drug Administration will grant permission for human trials within the next two years. If clinical trials prove successful, rice may replace donor blood as the source for HSA.

In its report on the genetically modified rice, the Calgary Herald cautions:

    Large-scale planting of genetically modified rice fields that could produce enough seed for mass production of the protein also raises environmental and food supply contamination concerns, since rice is a major world food staple.

Cross pollination among rice varieties occurs less frequently than among some cultivars such as canola. However, the Rice Knowledge Bank maintained by the International Rice Research Institute suggests up to 5% of a rice crop can be cross pollinated through wind, insects, birds, snails and water.

Given the biotech industry’s penchant for ignoring research that reveals numerous problems with genetically modified crops, enthusiasm for this new supply of HSA needs to be tempered with considerable caution.

What is the point of this rice?  Why would a food source be genetically modified to contain a human blood protein?  Makes one wonder.  Are the vampires and reptillians really out there?

I recently posted an argument that developed between myself and a somewhat notorious so-called anti-vaccine journalist.

She got all bent out of shape when I told her about the GMO food & vaccine science connection.  (you might as well throw 'drugs' into the mix as well.)

"Oh NO, NO, NO!! She said.  I've spent too much time researching this and, the two sciences are so different it's like comparing apples to oranges! You are wrong!! you're wrong!!?"

Oh, I'm "wrong" ah?

Bill Gates in the late mid 2000's, invested 10's of millions of dollars into Monsanto.   Who is also into the manufacturing of drugs.  We know that a university in Ohio was working on h1n1 corn and that other GMO food producers were working on putting vaccines into bananas.

PLEASE!  If you come across ANYONE claiming that there is NOTHING TO LOOK AT when it comes to GMO food and vaccines / drugs CALL THEM OUT IN THE COMMENT SECTION.  Do not allow them to spread that disinfo!

Lastly,
I noted this research on blood rice claims NO side effects.  However, what is NOT mentioned is that human protein made in GMO rice could carry man made gene sequences that are NOT in human DNA / RNA strands and CAN REWRITE A HOSTS DNA / RNA SEQUENCES THAT COME IN CONTACT WITH SUCH PROTEIN STRAINS!!

Hey thanks for posting this as well!

I am in the process of writing an article on my blog to COUNTER this nonsense that there are two complete different sciences (at the root) in GMO food and GMO vaccines.

I can use this info specially... The Role of Microorganisms in Genetic Engineering
http://www.microbiologybytes.com/introduction/GeneticEngineering.html

... to debunk this idea that there is no common ground between the two and that one has NOTHING to do with the other.

it needs to be done and the beautiful thing is, since we are not paid to tell the truth, our funding is kind of hard to cut, LOL!

screw big money :)

godspeed on your article!

OVERVIEW


Those who are doing this, promoting this and making it legal are total mad men/women.
They have no conscience what so ever.

Unfortunately, the hordes of sheep will say nothing and they will eat the rice and all other GMO foods.

This is when I am happy to be my age, leaving no children behind me.
The way this world is turning I will not regret saying goodbye when my time is due.

Human genes engineered into experimental GMO rice being grown in Kansas
http://www.naturalnews.com/035745_GMO_rice_human_genes_Kansas.html

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) 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.

Since about 2006, Ventria has been quietly cultivating rice that has been genetically modified (GM) with genes from the human liver for the purpose of taking the artificial proteins produced by this "Frankenrice" and using them in pharmaceuticals. With approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Ventria has taken one of the most widely cultivated grain crops in the world today, and essentially turned it into a catalyst for producing new drugs.

Originally, the cultivation of this GM rice, which comes in three approved varieties (http://www.aphis.usda.gov/brs/biotech_ea_permits.html), was limited to the laboratory setting. But in 2007, Ventria decided to bring the rice outdoors. The company initially tried to plant the crops in Missouri, but met resistance from Anheuser-Busch and others, which threatened to boycott all rice from the state in the event that Ventria began planting its rice within state borders (http://todayyesterdayandtomorrow.wordpress.com).

So Ventria's GM rice eventually ended up in Kansas, where it is presumably still being grown for the purpose of manufacturing drugs on 3,200 acres in Junction City. And while this GM rice with added human traits has never been approved for human consumption, it is now being cultivated in open fields where the potential for unrestrained contamination and spread of its unwanted, dangerous GM traits is virtually a given.

"This is not a product that everyone would want to consume," said Jane Rissler from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to the Washington Post back in 2007. "It is unwise to produce drugs in plants outdoors."

Though receiving tens of thousands of public comments of opposition, many rightly concerned about the spread of GM traits, the USDA approved open cultivation of Ventria's GM rice anyway. This, of course, occurred after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had refused approval for Ventria's GM rice back in 2003 (http://www.kansasruralcenter.org/publications/PharmaRice.pdf).

GM 'pharmaceutical' rice could cause more disease, suggests report

Besides the threat of contamination and wild spread, Ventria's GM rice, which is purportedly being grown to help third-world children overcome chronic diarrhea, may conversely cause other chronic diseases.

"These genetically engineered drugs could exacerbate certain infections, or cause dangerous allergic or immune system reactions," said Bill Freese, Science Policy Analyst at the Center for Food Safety (CFS), who published a report back in 2007 about the dangers of Ventria's GM rice.

The only way you can be certain what you're eating is to grow it yourself. GMO plants are appearing with regularity among non-GMO crops, like tares among the wheat. No one knows how they got there, and the makers of these GMO crops disclaim all responsibility, claiming that the "unauthorized" strains were destroyed.

Buy heirloom (guaranteed non-GMO) seeds. Plan on isolation techniques for pollination if you intend to keep seeds. Even though the plants don't grow as well, growing your seed plants indoors is one way to make sure they're not contaminated. Look up other forms of isolation and educate yourself.

Grains (corn, wheat, rice, etc) are more difficult, as they are partially wind pollinated. Small batches can be grown in pots indoors, but the simplest is not to plant them where similar grains are planted within half a mile.

If there is any chance of contamination, do NOT use those seeds. The altered genes would show up in the second generation.

Always keep older seeds in case of contamination or crop failure. Keep them dry in the refrigerator, where their life is doubled or more. The older the seeds, the less likely they're GMO.

To keep seeds, yes low tempreture can help, but the KEY is low humidty.
A fridge gets awful humid.

In case anyone is wondering, I used to have a walk-in seed store and did biotechnology, plant breeding GMO thing - back in the day.
