Q:
What is the quantity of Cry1Ab toxin in one corn plant? Does it exist in the corn pollen? It would appear there are problems for measuring the quantity of Cry1Ab toxin produced according to Food and Agricultural Immunology - FOOD AGRIC IMMUNOL 01/2012; 23(2):99-121. DOI:10.1080/09540105.2011.604773 Are there any benefits the regarding breakdown of toxin before consumption when topically sprayed vs being preserved in the plant tissue? "Bt toxins sprayed on plants break down quickly when exposed to UV light. Bt toxins produced in the plant are protected from UV light." http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/crops/00707.html Is it possible it may be for this reason why it was found in the blood of pregnant women? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21338670 When pesticide measurements are considered, are the plant producing quantities counted as overall pesticide use on US crops?
