Greenpeace protesters have broken into a CSIRO experimental farm in Canberra to destroy a crop of genetically modified wheat.
They say the entire crop of genetically modified wheat has been destroyed.About half a hectare of GM wheat is being grown on the site, as part of Australia's first outdoor trials.
Last month the CSIRO received permission to conduct Australia's first trial in which humans will eat GM wheat.
The wheat's genes have been modified to lower the glycemic index and increase fibre to create a product which will improve bowel health and increase nutritional value.-----"No one is looking after the health of Australians. Julia Gillard isn't standing up to foreign GM countries to protect our daily bread so Greenpeace has to," she said.
