    How to see the problem of genetically modified food?



    How to see the problem of genetically modified food?
    Is genetically modified food safe? What are the harms to humans?
    Which countries currently import the most GM crops?

    As far as I know, the safety of genetic modification is highly controversial. Genetically modified foods are common in African countries and China. China's GM importing countries are mainly the United States and Brazil.

    Apart from health issues, some are afraid genetically modified crops will overwhelm traditional crops.
    Others are afraid for the financial and economic consequences.

    Good Afternoon I've enjoyed your motivated conversation. Steven M. Druker has been on of those books that was hard to put down. Altered Genes, Twisted Truth has made me an activist and it's exciting to follow your threads and thinking. Thank You for sharing this topic I hope I can add to the conversation.

    that is true,
    The major fear is the sterilized seed, even on Hybridic and mutant
    and many people who are working or are connected with Farming production have seen it,
    Even I have seen it in long green pepper plants and seed.
    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Strangely there been a Beginning,Percent and a Future to each and every question we find ourselves wanting to answer.

    The questions of Druker Law Suits

    Here's what you need to know about ​the warmingplanet, ho​​w it's affecting us, and what's at stake.


    13 MINUTE READ
    BY JENNIFER ACKERMAN,
    REPUBLISHED FROM THE PAGES OF NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE

    SCIENTISTS CONTINUE TO find new ways to insertgenes for specific traits into plant and animal DNA. A field of promise—and asubject of debate—genetic engineering is changing the food we eat and the worldwe live in.
    In the brave new world of genetic engineering, DeanDella Penna envisions this cornucopia: tomatoes and broccoli bursting withcancer-fighting chemicals and vitamin-enhanced crops of rice, sweet potatoes,and cassava to help nourish the poor. He sees wheat, soy, and peanuts free ofallergens; bananas that deliver vaccines; and vegetable oils so loaded withtherapeutic ingredients that doctors "prescribe" them for patients atrisk for cancer and heart disease. A plant biochemist at Michigan StateUniversity, DellaPenna believes that genetically engineered foods are the keyto the next wave of advances in agriculture and health.
    While DellaPenna and many others see great potential inthe products of this new biotechnology, some see uncertainty, even danger.Critics fear that genetically engineered products are being rushed to marketbefore their effects are fully understood. Anxiety has been fueled by reportsof taco shells contaminated with genetically engineered corn not approved forhuman consumption; the potential spread of noxious "superweeds"spawned by genes picked up from engineered crops; and possible harmful effectsof biotech corn pollen on monarch butterflies.
    There has been a Past, Present, and Future
    It seems to show just how much were kept in the dark. Usually long before the lights are turned on.

    usually we used to grow some potatoes in the village,
    we kept as seed the smaller ones of the last year corps,
    then some 'strong' 'better' and more 'healthy' seeds came to market for farmers,
    after about a decade,
    all the potatoes hold from last year as seed, give a plant that makes small potatoes as an apricot, underneath,
    and smaller than cherry tomatoes up the ground in air, and have tiny thorns,
    most of the local potatoe production is lost, and seed gives a strange bastard plant,

    JUST TO BUY THEIR SEED,

    Scientific work, has nothing to do with market applications,
    That is what I call sterilized seed.

    Genetically modified food is really dangerous. It causes and stimulates cancer and diabetes and many more diseases.

    The truth in the agreement is frightening in that where could that solution be? The scope of acceptance seems difficult to overcome. Those who chase the secrets of the soil to till are questioned by those who just demand the solution to instant answers not really caring that it's impact is far greater than one would assume. There's so much to find about the "Altered Genes, Twisted Truth" Steven M. Drucker. I'm always searching for the links especially as the World feels more twister than ever.
    Thank you for sharing your search and discovery missions.
