    GMO Foods

    I heard that, where I live, tomatoes in shop franchises (such as Woolworth's) mostly get tomatoes in that are artificially ripened. They're picked when green then they ripen them under some light in a building.

    Like are you fooking serious mate? No wonder they don't taste that great. Then there's labels that have "vine ripened tomatoes" and "grass fed beef". So you're telling me anything without those labels are produced a different way?

    What other stuff are they going to do to food next... Well I know there's already lots of poisonous pesticides used and all the rest. But I guess no one has tragically died yet, but there are a lot more allergies because of GM food.

    But really, you can't ripen fruit on their plants? Honestly... what this world does for money...

    Are there any GM food that tastes different for you? Or that you're skeptical of?

    It only gets much worse the more you look into it and this is partly the reason why people develop food allergies as well a multitude of other problems including obesity. The gmo crap also reduces fertility and increases cancer risks, the worst offender is Monsanto's gmo corn.

    And yeah... monsanto.. I don't want to swear but f*** those people.
    GMO reduces fertility in plants also because they have no seeds!

    Just because the tomatoes are ripened in a building doesn't mean that they're GMO. There's a method called hydroponic gardening which is a soil-less method of growing crops, and tomatoes are one of the most common things to grow using that method. The crops still receive the same nutrients, but they're just mixed into the water. All that means is that the crops may not qualify as organic.

    GMO is something completely different, and has its purposes. The main one being producing a crop that can grow in climates that otherwise be non-arable and home to underfed and malnourished populations. Best if avoided if you can, but they're not meant for well-off populations.

    I don't see why all GMOs are suddenly bad...

    They're not. Some people hate them because of fear mongering, and others just choose all organic because they just feel better about it (I'm in that camp).

    To all the people complaining about GMOs, it's not the GMO that is bad; it's the stuff added after production (like extra sugars and salt) which are unhealthy and pesticides (which in the U.S. can legally be used in "organic" food production if the pesticides are "natural"). Rather or not something is organic or not or non-GMO or not will not protect you have the health problems caused by modern food production.

    Yeah, truth is that they aren't really ripened, just the color changes. Showed somebody who hated tomatoes what a real natural tomato tastes like and they loved it.

    All fruits is GMO just not the way you may think.

    We genetically modified fruit and veggies for millenia, much like we 'domesticated' animals; via selective breeding.

    Here is a nice links to how some fruits and vegetables used to look like in the past, or in their 'wild' variety

    Yes, and this type of modification is not what upsets most people. Although, some claim they went too far with the wheat that contributes to the stomach and gluten issues of people.
    But things like the corn that acts as a pesticide and makes the insect's stomach explode, that's going too far in my book.
