HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IF FOOD IS ORGANIC OR GMO?
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:44:07 PM »
Ask ko lang sana .. may way ba para malaman kung yung kinakain natin or yung food product ay galing sa Organic or Genetically-Modified Organism - Made Product by way of looking at it?

yung technique na binigay sa akin ng isa kong friend ang sabi nya pag daw inuuod yung fruit natural daw yun at hindi organic tsaka daw pag nilalanggam. ibig sabihin hindi sya pinalaki sa chemical- organic ibig sabihin nun kaya safe.

unfortunately, you'll have to trust the word of the farmer/supplier when he says that the product is "organic" or non-GMO.

That's the problem with GMO. we are not sure about the products being sold in the market. In the US alone, markets are already full with GMO products from Monsanto. People are not advised about the products. In reality, we don't have a choice cause it's a million dollar investment. I have nothing against GMO. In fact, I'm fascinated about the process of genetic tranplant/recombination/DNA manipulation.
The policy for proper labeling is not strict compare to European countries like UK, Germany, Switserland etc. In the Philippine setting i have heard a lot of stories about GMO. BT Corn. Rice, eggplant. so we might not be aware that the food we are eating is actually GMO. Although the NCBP -National council for biosafety of the philippines adopted laws and policies regarding biosafety but i think it should be properly updated, regulated and implemented.
If we talked about GMO there are lots of issues that we need to address.

Meanwhile organic farming can actually be contaminated with GMO. Plants that farmes are using might be coming from genetic laboratories etc. we can say that a product is organic but we can't say if its GMO. I think when you say organic it is grown without artificial fertilizer, pesticides etc. which is actually hard to do. especially if the plants were not modified.

just some thoughts guys.

So what's the problem with GMO? Are you personally against it?

Nope im not against it. I just want a law to be enacted for biosafety like proper labelling of GMO, organic etc. products so that consumers rights will not be violated and also for proper information dissemination.

problem with GMO's? more of disadvantage:

*Possibility of humans developing new allergic reactions to the foods they eat.
*Strong likelihood of widespread infestation of diseases across species barriers.
*GM foods can disturb the natural flow of our environments.
*Artificial characteristics can be passed on to subsequent generations.
*Unpredictable health effects: we do not yet know the long-term effects of these mutated foods. It could be way worse than what we already recognize.
*Insufficient government regulation.
*Some crops are now possibly being engineered to produce their own pesticides.
*Global threat to humanity’s food supply!

But in my opinion much of the disadvantage can be questioned.  take for example the global threat to humanity's food supply. GMO's are already modified to address food supply because of their superior genetic traits which can stand pests, climate and even shelflife. So bottom line more food available for harvest more foods can be stored. The only thing that is contradicting is the growing population of the world. How many are we? 10 billion? 20 billion the next decade or much more? And of course more mouths to feed more resources that needs to be utilized. GMO’s offer only a substantial capacity for food supply there are lots of factor why it can’t give its full potential. Of course, genetic engineering is a big investment and a big business. companies look for return of investments.

I might need all day to discuss GMO anyway I'm not against it i'm curious of the process of modication especially if human modication is concerned with the human genome project/ gene mapping still on progress it might be just a little time before another issue for human modification might arise. who knows? 10 years from now or maybe 30 years from now. just some thoughts guys!

Why would you think that the rights of consumers are being violated with GMO? And biosafety? Can you please elaborate more on this? And maybe it would be nice if you can provide where you got some of your data for added information to us readers. Thanks.
