Altered Apples

With no process in place to review genetically modified foods, the FDA has declared these apples “that resist browning” to be “safe.”

The USDA said it had determined the apples were “unlikely to pose a plant pest risk to agriculture” and they are “not likely to have a significant impact on the human environment”. Just like the vaccination issue, one side is said to be “scientifically sound” and the other side is said to “deny the science.” Again – whose “science,” and how is that science motivated by money and politics? Simple questions and skepticism triggers hatred for anyone who dares to question the so-called science of GMOs, in spite of the very transparent and documented political-profiteering undertones. From the FDA’s website comes the standard protector/safety language: “Using a science-based approach, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates foods and ingredients made from genetically engineered plants to help ensure that they are safe to eat.”

The company’s president, Neal Carter, called the USDA approval “a monumental occasion”. And so the profits will show as big biotech continues to use political channels to push its products on consumers while resisting voluntary labeling.
