Rumors about genetically modified wheat have been in news for quite some time now. However, recently, the CSIRO, manufacturer of genetically modified wheat, said that it will conduct researches and will show with proof whether or not the product is bad for health.
The rumors began to take air when a lecturer from New Zealand, Jack Heinemann said, that the genetically modified wheat can lead to liver related problems. In 2010, a trial over the genetically modified wheat was called for. However, now the opposition has asked the authorities to abandon the trial being conducted in WA.
But, according to the authorities, the trial was never held in WA. So, the rumors about the genetically modified wheat are revolving all around the regions without any concrete evidences. Besides, the Spokesman of agriculture ministry, Terry Redman of said that the trial was not over yet and therefore it is too early to say anything about it.
During an interview, Terry Redman said, "To claim halfway through a trial, speculating in fact, that something's unsafe now is quite frankly too early to do so, and I think scaremongering". However, the government has been asked to make sure that people's life isn't put at the risk by genetically modified wheat trials.
