Science in The Magnetic Field of Money. Increasingly, the potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and other vegetable products that we buy in the supermarket are genetically modified. Food inspection authorities and biologists experimenting with the manipulation of DNA structures for large food companies claim that these products.
Because of late blight, potatoes are one of the crops most affected by chemical pesticides. In Europe, farmers typically spray a potato crop 10-15 times. The aim of the study was to produce a crop that could fight off blight without the aid of chemicals. Results from the trials appear in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
GMOs Can Be Seen Naturally in Sweet Potatoes, Study Suggests By Mike Pomranz May 11, 2015
Information that Johnson ignored or discounted. For his research for this and other articles on GM, Johnson had also corresponded with the independent scientist Dr Judy Carman, who has researched the effects of feeding GMOs to pigs. 9 Johnson had asked Carman for her opinion on Folta’s claims.
Sweet potatoes are actually 8,000 year old GMOs. Photo courtesy of Shutterstock. Take the sweet potato, for example. A recent study found that sweet potatoes were bred some 8,000 years ago out of the swollen parts of regular potato roots. In other words, they didn’t exist until humans tinkered with them.
Buried and forgotten is the 1998 story of a renowned British biochemist who exposed the truth about how GMOs cause organ damage, reproductive failure, digestive dysfunction, impaired immunity, and cancer, among many other conditions in a three-year study at Rowett Research Institute.
SE:From a health perspective, GMO food is no different than non-GMO food. In fact, they can even be healthier. In fact, they can even be healthier. Imagine peanuts that can be genetically engineered to reduce levels of aflatoxin , and gluten-free wheat , which would give those with celiac disease a healthy and tasty bread option.
The genetically modified foods controversy consists of a set of disputes over the use of food made from genetically modified crops. The disputes involve consumers, farmers, biotechnology companies, governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, environmental and political activists and scientists.
GMO toxicity: fears and scientific analysis. In order to see if this GMO potato would have adverse effects on consumer health like those claimed by the IRT, a group of scientists at the National Institute of Toxicological Research in Seoul, Korea fed rats diets containing either GMO potato or non-GMO potato .
Ask just about any scientist if GMOs are bad for our health and he or she will say, “Probably not.” That’s because no reputable studies have shown any negative health effects of eating GMOs, at least so far. And scientists around the world continue to look for any evidence of risk or unintended consequences.
