This. At least I can't get any. As far as the Kansas Wheat Commission says, they haven't mapped the genome yet to do any gene splicing.

It all comes from the farmer. I'm growing certified wheat for a dealer that is going to be sold as seed wheat that is going to be taken to the market. It's just seed from the breeder that hasn't been tainted by other varieties (I assume there is some sort of tolerance)

**** your mother. My wheat tastes awesome. I eat it like its going out of style.

His methods would solve about 85-90% of the mainstream health issues we all have in today's world.

He does say that we as humans should not be eating any kind of whole wheat. It's a complete myth that's it's healthy for you. It's actually not.
Gotta get fiber somewhere. Plus the processing takes out a lot of the vitamins and minerals. Beyond that, I don't know much about the semantics of the latest greatest nutrition trend.

As far as I know, there is no wheat that is GM. Even if they do get it, the EPA and FDA will take forever to get it to market like they did with corn and beans.

The way it is explained to me by the geneticists at the Kansas Wheat Commission is that the genome of wheat is markedly more complex than that of corn and beans. They've been trying to get GM wheat since they STARTED GM corn (70's I think), and still haven't gotten it done. I'm pretty sure it would be all over the farm rags I read if there were any of it getting in the market. At the very least, Kansas Wheat Commission would be able to access the genome and acknowledge that it had been mapped.
