Beware of Apples that Don't 'Brown'
2-19-17, (Natural News) - Few topics in the scientific world are as fiercely debated as the use of genetically modified organisms [GMOs].
One of the first “gene-edited” foods that has already emerged in some stores across the United States is the Arctic Apple, which is sold in stores pre-sliced and ready to eat. These altered apples do not turn brown when exposed to air, not even when rotten.
While biotech companies such as Intrexon, the company that made the Arctic Apple, believe this novel technique will lead to less food waste, Stat News noted that these foods are being released with little understanding of their potential health and environmental risks. The GMO industry once again gets a free pass as there are no regulatory oversight.
Many scientist explain that apples turn brown for a reason; they are convinced that the natural browning enzymes play a crucial role in fighting diseases. They also fight pests so orchards will probably be sprayed with more pesticides use to grow these Franken apples. The altered 'food' could mess up gene expression in human cells and pose a serious threat to public and environmental health.
The GMO industry has spent millions of dollars to prevent mandatory labeling and regulatory instances have not yet caught up with the latest biotechnology techniques, most of these new Frankenfoods will be labeled “non-GMO” or even “natural.” More here:
