He is not infringing on any patent. Simply disclosing the algorithm is not infringement, In fact LDS had to disclose it themselves in the process of obtaining the patent. Using the name in the blog has nothing to do wit copyright, it might have something to do with trademarks, but I think he would have to make a profit off of it to count as trademark infringement

No, it is not always safe to eat. The danger is rather indirect. Some of these GM crops have been engineered to be highly resistant to pesticides, which means that they are aggressively treated with Monsanto's own Roundup and they end up with a pesticide content that is 200x greater than the levels that would be tolerated by non-GM plants.
