Might be changing a bit.


The standard defines bioengineered foods as those containing detectable genetic material that has been modified through lab techniques and may not be created through conventional breeding or found in nature. Implementation of the standard begins Jan. 1, 2020, or Jan. 1, 2021, for small food manufacturers. The mandatory compliance date is Jan. 1, 2022. Regulated entities may voluntarily comply with the standard until Dec. 31, 2021.

Although


Certain products made from the 13 bioengineered crops and foods on the U.S.D.A.’s list do not require labeling. The list of bioengineered foods are alfalfa, canola, corn, cotton, potato, salmon (AquAdvantage), soybean, squash, sugarbeet and certain varieties of apple, eggplant, papaya and pineapple.

“For refined foods that are derived from bioengineered crops, no disclosure is required if the food does not contain detectable modified genetic material,” according to the advance Federal Register notice. As such, refined beet sugar, soybean oil and corn sweeteners, all mostly from bioengineered seed, would not need to be labeled as a bioengineered ingredient under the new rule. Adequate testing must have been performed to prove that there was no detectable material, though.

I wouldn't go that far, however we are in a race to the bottom, embracing gmo will certainly speed up that decline.

You don't really think any of this is accidental do you.


I have a skeptical opinion of it. I don't argue or debate about it with non-GMO advocates because in my list of priority things to focus on it's not very important to me. You can't champion everything and save the world in every way, not that any of us will succeed in doing any of that.

I tend to think it's mostly anxious, sometimes paranoid in the vein of doom porn to a softer degree. The creator of the Georgia Guidestones must be a Monsanto executive in a present life.

Almost all of the food we eat on this planet is genetically modified.

Anyone who argues that selective breeding/cross pollination is the same as modern GMO is quite plainly ignorant, and has nothing intelligent to say on the subject.

There is a huge difference between hybridization and gene splicing.

GMO soy is round up ready, have you seen any news of late regarding roundup?



Is there really a huge difference? I'm constantly on the fence with this in whether anything with GMO is bad or if it is just a narrative of the organic community to justify their high prices for their products. As example there is a rice called golden rice where they infused carrot vitamin A DNA into rice. The end result was rice with a slight golden (carrot color) and vitamin A, which the lack of vitamin A is a huge health risk in poor parts of the world, so to eat this would be a boom for many places that severally lack in Vitamin A. Is that bad?

As we look at your "round up ready soy" that doesn't mean it is soy with round up in it. It means it is soy that is resistant to round up and so you have less crop loss if/when pesticides are used, if you elect to use zero pesticides then there really isn't anything different, but once again the anti-GMO world suggests it is soy with round up in it.

One of my bigger complaints against the anti-GMO group is that they suggest GMO affects people on the molecular level and that is a simple way to not really have a real reason as to why it is bad. At the end of the day there tens to be more health risk with organic because it is not regulated as much and you have a much higher chance to get sick.

I had no idea Red Grapefruit was created using radiation exposure!??
Wow... it isn't nearly as bad (imo) as splicing roundup genes into food crops, but I still very much dislike the idea.
