Who determines if GMO foods are safe to eat?
What is the difference between heirloom, hybrid and GMO foods and which is the best for us to eat?
HEIRLOOM – the same seed has been passed down generationally. This requires open pollination, which enables the seed to produce seedlings just like the parent plants.
EXAMPLE: HEIRLOOM TOMATOES
HYBRID – cross-pollination enables hybrid foods to form, but the hybrids don’t produce plants with identical qualities. Seeds from hybridized plants tend to revert to the Qualities of the parent seeds.
EXAMPLE: SEEDLESS WATERMELON
GMO – unlike hybrids, these GMO foods are altered using molecular genetics like gene cloning. This was initiated, we were told, to feed poor countries and to grow disease resistant plants. Pesticides can be infused into the food when they are genetically modified.
Examples of how GMO’s have saturated our food supply:
- 88% OF ALL CORN
- 93% OF ALL SOYBEANS
- 90% OF ALL CANOLA
- 75% OF ALL PAPAYAS
The Final Say
Genesis 1:11 – Then God said, “let the land produce vegetation: seed bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.”
According to their various kinds? GMO is the antithesis of Biblical doctrine.
