Hybrid Grass Kills Herd of Cattle in Texas. Cyanide

This was originally reported as a GMO grass that had started to produce cyanide and had killed a herd of grazing cattle in Texas.

It turns out that it was not a GMO, but a hybrid grass that has mutated after being used since 1972. IMO, this is one of the signs that the radiation in effecting the plant life. It is a damn dangerous one too.

Update June 24, 2012 at 6:49 p.m.:
Dr. Larry Redmon of the Texas AgriLife Extension has confirmed, by way of this blog post, that the animals in question died of prussic acid poisoning--prussic acid is also known as hydrogen cyanide (HCN).
One of these, Tifton 68, is a stargrass, a species that has potential for generating HCN, but hasn't apparently done so since the time the University of Florida starting using it for grazing in Ona, Florida in 1972.
Several factors resulted in the cattle dying, including abnormal growth patterns after drought and the fact that stressed and hungry cattle were released straight into a pasture previously ungrazed. The most significant remains that Tifton 85 can and does produce HCN--something not previously known.
Facts confirming the status of Tifton 85 as a hybrid, not a GMO, can be found at the links below. For those with cattle grazing Tifton 85, Dr. Redmon offers several tips.
Further resources are listed below.

Recently, 15 head of Corriente roping calves died as a result of prussic acid poisoning in Bastrop cattle in a clean field of Tifton 85 bermudagrass. While this has never been reported before, results of analyses of rumen contents and the fresh forage confirmed death was due to prussic acid poisoning. Forage specialists and researchers here and the vet diagnostic lab at first denied the possibility of this. Even the researchers and breeders at USDA-ARS -- Tifton, GA, doubted the findings, but after multiple site visits, multiple forage analyses, and DNA analysis of plants from several fields from several environments across Texas, we can come to only one conclusion -- the death of the cattle was indeed due to prussic acid [cyanide gas] poisoning.

Three things are important to note in this statement:

1) This outbreak of cyanide gas producing grass has never been reported before. This is a first, at least in this report.

2) The cyanide gas produced by the grass did, indeed, kill the cattle.

3) This is happening on more than one farm. This report quotes a farm in Bastrop, Texas. The ranch I visited where other cattle perished is in Elgin, Texas. In Elgin, the rancher there told me that many other fields across the county tested positive for cyanide gas production.

So how do you manage to connect this to Fukushima?

Can you think of something else outside of the lab. that has come on the scene in the last year the came mutate the gene stucture of living organisms. I say radiation - only my opinion.

This guy probably has bigfoot as a roommate!

What do ya mean? I am Big Foot! Thats with 2 Os.

This video concerns the radiation levels on the West Coast. I have heard of reports that the State Police there are getting levels of 600% higher then normal. 300% is concidered HazMat situations. They use hepa-filter systems to measure air quality.

John Hutchison (Hutchison Effect) has moved his equipment from the Gulf where he was using it to help dissipate the oil after the spill. Here he has set up to attempt to dissipate the radiation coming in from Fukashima. They made this to demonstrate the effectivness of their "bubble". The second is the first in a series of three when they first moved to the location.

So, what exactly makes you decide it must be the smaller, lower impact source of radiation that may never have even reached the grass, and not the constant, intense source of radiation that blasts the grass all day long. Just curious.

Hmmm I was going to say it served the called right for smoking it
but that would be off topic. I don't think its radiation, or even the
hybrid grass. We have had hybrid production of food and plants
for years. GMO is different and we don't know about the effects
of that either. I am not against GMO production for scientific
reasons but for market reasons.
They are trying to get a GMO Apple approved. I oppose it and so
do the American Apple producers because if GMO spills over into
fruit production the consumers will provide a negative impact on
sales. It would also impact organic growers.
As for cattle eating cyanide grass, what does the serious scientific
community say about it? This does not sound right to me on the
face of it.

I'm not a scientist, but can grass produce cyanide naturally? I wouldn't think so.

Yes. Many types of plant produce cyanogenic glycosides. Basically a sugar bound to a non-carbohydrate, in this case cyanide.

Here's the chemical structure for amygdalin:

See that CN branching off the chain leading away from that sugar? Cyanide.

In this case, the plants were stressed and enzyme reactions released the cyanide inside the cytoplasm of the plant cells. Plants have defense mechanisms too you know. Some of them are very nasty.
