You Are What You Eat

Thoroughly research topics such as the ecological risks of using genetically modified crops, insecticide resistant crops, and herbicide resistant crops These are also subjects of great moral and ethical import. Health risks, such as antibiotic resistance from eating genetically modified foods, can occur, as well as allergic reactions.



The biotechnology involved and how it impacts developing nations and developed ones as well, is of import to all humans. The agrochemical companies who produce GM products are pushing for more and more land grabs, and more and more leniency toward their risky products..

What will happen genetically in the future to our foods from this kind of science is unknown.

Stephen Nottingham, who  wrote the book  Eat Your Genes: How Genetically Modified Food is Entering Our Diet  is a crop protection biologist. You should at least sample what he has to say before you think that these foods are harmless and just 'the way it has to be'. He writes of  the pharming industry, which is in the business of combining agriculture products with pharmaceuticals.

Patenting genetic engineering techniques and seeds further erodes our ability to turn back the clock and take back our food sources from the profiteers. Biology and chemistry play a large part in this science, and we must preserve the ways of nature, before they are lost.

 

From the book Genetically Modified (GM) Food: A Guide for the Confused :

"Q: What is genetic engineering?



A: Genetic engineering involves taking genes from one species and inserting them into another. For example, genes from an arctic flounder which has "antifreeze" properties may be spliced into a tomato to prevent frost damage."

Sound weird? Flounder in your tomato?

Nah, I can not get with your program, kittycat. The gene splicing has got to stop. Pretty soon, nothing will grow, and the gene pools will be polluted with untold atrocities., like plants that grow non-reproducing seed. Ask Monsanto, that's what they intend to do. Who needs glowing food, anyway? What a freaky idea. And wrong. Just wrong..

i think GM foods are the best thing to happen... how cool is it that you can now make corn plants be like cactus's and need little water? or make them glow in the dark with a gene from a florescent fish?!<br />
plus itll make growing food SO much easier for third world countries.

Absolutely, fruitloopz, if you get a chance, read about the "Enviropigs TM"<br />
I am not going to eat petri-dish meat and pigs with modified digestion. No way!

Search with these keywords, dear readers, and get facts about what is going on RIGHT NOW - <br />

something is fishy,alright...
