A RACE TO SAVE THE APPLE AND ORANGE BY ALTERING ITS DNA

Growers turned to genetics in hopes of building a tougher orange tree. But what intervention would the public accept?

The idea of eating plants and animals whose DNA has been manipulated in a laboratory — called genetically modified organisms, or G.M.O.’s — still spooks many people. Critics worry that such crops carry risks not yet detected, and distrust the big agrochemical companies that have produced the few in wide use. And hostility toward the technology, long ingrained in Europe, has deepened recently among Americans as organic food advocates, environmentalists and others have made opposition to it a pillar of a growing movement for healthier and ethical food choices.... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/28/science/a-race-to-save-the-orange-by-altering-its-dna.html?ref=science&_r=0

 -▶ GMO APPLES -- TELL THE FDA and USDA NO TO GMO APPLES - NO LABELS, NO REGULATIONS

http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/

The actual genetic engineering process includes insertion of nptII, neomycin phosphotransferase type II gene from E. coli Tn5.  This gene allows the transformed apple tissue to grow on a medium containing the antibiotic kanamycin but confers no benefit to the apple plant.
Every cell of every GE apple tree, including the fruit and the tree roots, will show resistance to kanamycin.  Kanamycin is a commonly used antibiotic in human medicine, used to treat a wide variety of infections.
    Eating an Arctic Apple could transfer the gene for kanamycin resistance into your digestive system.  A similar transfer has been demonstrated with GE soy.   There is a real possibility that bacteria in the human digestive systems could develop kanamycin resistance.  Antibiotic resistance is a major concern among medical professionals.
    Furthermore, the GE apple’s DNA can also spread to bacteria on the plant and in the soil.  Orchardists might very well find that controlling diseases of special concern like fireblight in orchards may become much more difficult.  And in the soil environment, the GE DNA can persist for at least a year, where it can be taken up by natural soil bacteria and then incorporated into their genetic structure.
There is no proof that Arctic Apples are harmless, but there is certainly reason to suspect that they may be harmful to humans, wildlife, and the soil environment.  Urge the USDA to reject approval of the Arctic Apple.  The unknown risks far outweigh the cosmetic value of an apple that doesn’t brown when sliced... http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/12/crushed-nutsrotten-apples-pasteurized-nuts-gmo-apples-tell-fda-usda/

MOST U.S. CONVENTIONAL APPLES COATED WITH CARCINOGENIC CHEMICAL BANNED IN EUROPE. USDA pesticide residue tests of apples find DPA more often and at greater concentrations than most other pesticide residues. DPA is also detected in apple juice and applesauce and, less often, on pears and in pear baby food. It is regulated as a pesticide, but its primary function is a “growth regulator” or antioxidant that slows fruit skin discoloration during storage.  http://www.ewg.org/release/most-us-apples-coated-chemical-banned-europe-0

The Tragic Mistake That Now Threatens 1 Out of Every 3 Bites You Eat | YOUR FOOD, YOUR ENVIRONMENT, YOUR HEALTH: #Biotech #GMOs #Pesticides #Chemicals #FactoryFarms #CAFOs #BigFood | Scoop.it

The documentary film "Vanishing of the Bees" unveils the phenomenon called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and the real causes of bee death all over the U.S."

The danger of accumulated pesticides in the environment and the lack of USA federal agency oversight in favor of manufacturers's studies without independent review is a major cause for concern.  90% of food we eat is treated with pesticides, over a billion pounds of these toxic chemicals are used annually on the huge agricultural western monocrop farms.

Before releasing these highly toxic chemicals into our environment, a responsible nation would ensure that independent interdisciplinary studies are carried out to determine affects on both our ecosystems AND human health.
