GMO apples heading to Midwest supermarkets 8.11.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Genetically modified fruit salad just got real. Along with virus-resistant papayas, apples are joining the ranks of biotech fruit sold in U.S. grocery stores. The first commercial harvest of GMO golden delicious apples will be going from Washington state orchards to 400 Midwestern grocery stores this month. They will be sliced up and sold in 10-ounce bags, and because they’re modified, they take much longer to brown when exposed to the air. While GMO crops are the mainstream for U.S. commodities like corn and soybeans, that isn’t the case with fruits.

Have Monsanto and the Biotech Industry Turned Natural Bt Pesticides Into GMO "Super Toxins"? 11.10.2017 Truthout - All Articles
In times of great injustice, independent media is crucial to fighting back against misinformation. Support grassroots journalism: Make a donation to Truthout by clicking here. Is the supposed safety advantage of GMO crops over conventional chemical pesticides a mirage? According to biotech lore, the Bt pesticides introduced into many GMO food crops are natural proteins whose toxic activity extends  only to narrow groups of insect species . Therefore, says the industry, these pesticides can all be safely eaten, e.g. by humans. This is not the interpretation we arrived at after our analysis of the documents accompanying the commercial approval of 23 typical Bt-containing GMO crops, however (see  Latham et al., 2017 , just published in the journal Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering Reviews). In our publication, authored along with Madeleine Love and Angelika Hilbeck, of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), we show that commercial GMO Bt toxins differ greatly from their natural precursors. ...
