Are Natural Seeds More Precious Versus GMO Seeds Because of Phytonutrients?

  1. a seed coat which protects them while they grow and develop, starting underground
  2. a baby plant or embryo
  3. cotyledons which store the food (endosperm) the baby plants use to grow before they can use sunlight to produce their own food.
  1. Shave off or chip off a tiny piece of the seed and grind it into a powder to analyze with genome-mapping technology.
  2. Shoot the genes’ DNA into the plant tissue to be modified by using “gene guns,” literally a .22-caliber gun.
  3. Create plant progenitor cells with the new DNA so when they are planted and pollinated they can advance into the next generation.
  • Animal products from livestock, apiculture, and aquaculture are exposed because of genetically engineered ingredients that are common in animal feed which includes eggs, milk, meat, honey, and seafood.
  • Processed food products may contain GMO derivatives like hydrolyzed vegetable protein, corn syrup, molasses, sucrose, flavorings, vitamins, yeast products, oils & fats, and other sweeteners.
  • It is estimated that more than 80% of all genetically modified crops grown worldwide have herbicide tolerance against weedkillers like Roundup. The herbicide glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup) “can probably cause cancer in humans.” ( World Health Organization, March 2015)
  • Genetically modified crops also produced resistant “super-weeds” and “super-bugs,” which can only be killed with ever more toxic poisons such as 2,4-D (a major ingredient in Agent Orange). Soil fertility may be affected with less micro-nutrients and bees may be poisoned by toxins on flowers … the seriousness of which cannot be overstated. Once released into the environment, these novel organisms cannot be recalled.
