Why do we discuss the need of genetically altered food?
Is there anybody who thinks that we realy need it?
I'm not talkin' to those people who transport tomatoes - who produce corn in
high quantities - a.s.o. they will answer - YES!
But the others who want tasty food - well on a simple hamburger it does not
matter where MR BURGER got his tomatoes from - but in italian kitchen it is more
difficult to get the wright thing - ever tried ?
In thousands of years of co-evolution wo+man and food developed
to the very best co-existing system!
For those who didn't know :
WE DO HAVE PLANT AND ANIMALS ON EARTH - YOU CAN EAT IT! WHOW!
But millions of people suffer from hunger - millions of children die of hunger.
They are NOT working on GEN-TECHNOLOGY and they do not die because they didn't
get their genetically manipulated WONDER-meal!
There is NO HOPE for these people in genetically altered food.
Genetically altered food has been DESIGNED to use existing herbicids and
insecticids (and other killing additives) in industrial agriculture more freely!
So we have nice plants resistant against herbicids so that the farmer can spray
much more poisson on his corn field than he did before (Don't worry your
genetically wonder corn will resist all the poisson - those eatin' the crob
The harvest will be enormous and the meat production will be much cheaper
because corn will be cheaper too.
What is all this stuff for? Why does nobody want to enable the underdeveloped
countries to produce food for men and beast on their own?
It is only the mighty 'white' man (wearing white clothes in the lab) being so
clever - having all this technology to produce the GOOD things.
IMHO there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to produce genetically altered food!
The problems of humanity in this fading century will not be solved by this
method but many unknown dangers MAY (I said MAY!) occur and billards of $$ will
be wasted on sophisticated techniques nobody realy needs.
Even if genetics tell us the opposite why are they so sure?
- They are all looking for grants and they believe in technology - just like
those people who build the atomic bombs (but they even believed in god - crazy).
So here I wait for the one telling me how wrong I am!
