Genetically modified food. What does humanity eat

After the release of material about the use of hormones and other chemical elements that can affect the human body in animal husbandry, a lot of questions have come up about how things are going in crop production. The questions are really relevant. Just because a person’s diet is much more dependent on plant foods.


Choosing chicken or pork chop for dinner, we are well aware that meat produced under industrial conditions is crammed with “chemistry” during the growth of the animal and during transportation and storage. We consciously consume this explosive mixture of hormones, pesticides and other chemicals.

We even came up with dubious scientific research and conclusions that some poisons in small quantities not only do no harm to humans, but are also useful. I myself once came up with an excuse for my own smoking. I read somewhere in the book that 10 cigarettes per day are harmless to the body and for a long time I justified my own weakness with this argument.

Today, plant phytohormones are used quite intensively. With their help, they accelerate the ripening of vegetables and fruits, change the sex of plants and carry out many other works that provide store shelves with year-round supplies of plant foods.

We are no longer surprised by the presence, for example, of new potatoes on store shelves in March. We are used to the fact that for some reason tomatoes began to grow year-round. We are not surprised that the beets in the market with my grandmother are several times more than the store ones, but they also smell completely different.

No, once I was still surprised. When, during a conversation with an employee of our airport, he suddenly found out an incredible thing. It turns out that when inspecting passengers' baggage, employees no longer pay attention to bread in bags. Two or three loaves of simple "Harvest", flying to Moscow or St. Petersburg. If you ask about the purpose of such transportation, the answer is also staggering. “You have bread from bread here. Tasty. I always treat them to friends! ”

It is difficult to unequivocally answer the question about the effect of phytoestrogens and other hormones on a person. It is difficult simply because this influence depends on many factors. In my opinion, phytohormones are a hormonal medicine. And like any medicine, phytohormones can benefit or cause serious harm to health. Therefore, they must be treated with caution.

We are not surprised by a tractor that moves across the field and sprayes some kind of “chemistry” over the plants. This has become the norm. But what is used and why, few people know. I’ll try to fill this gap.

Gibberellins growth hormones are used to increase the growth of sugarcane and hemp stems. Accordingly, the productivity of these crops increases. In addition, these hormones are used to increase the green mass of fodder legumes. Some townspeople are still surprised to see a field of peas, on which there are many stems, but very few pods ...

Auxins and their synthetic substitutes are used to enhance the root formation of cuttings, accelerate the germination of seeds of some plants, increase the yield of tomatoes (!), Protect the fruits from pre-harvest decay, and restore the root system after transplanting.

But, probably, the most widespread ethylene producers. After reading this term, some readers who knew “personally” with cotton, or, more precisely, with cotton picking, immediately recognized the muck that “corncrackers” had sprayed on the cotton fields and after which there were no leaves left on the bushes.

It is this group of substances that is used to reduce the ripening time of fruits, to induce flowering of certain plants (mango, avocado, pineapple), to strengthen the stems of crops, for example, rye and wheat, to accelerate the ripening and facilitate the harvesting of tomatoes, apples, sea buckthorn, citrus fruits, grapes.

The abundance that a modern city dweller sees on store shelves has also appeared thanks to hormones. However, the disappearance of the normal taste of fruits and vegetables in city stores - also from hormones. Tomato or any other vegetable will not withstand prolonged transportation and storage.

Fruits just rip green. In this form, they begin the path to our stores. But they are brought to a ripe appearance by special treatment. And here is a fruit or vegetable, “just taken from a melon or grape bush this morning” somewhere in Georgia or Moldova. Merchants openly lie to us, and we, knowing this, pretend that we believe them. Yes, and we ask, from which side of the mountain this same grape ...

There are many ways to relate to the use of hormones and other substances in agricultural production. I have already been reproached for not understanding the obvious things like increasing the world's population that needs to be fed. I understand everything. Everyone wants to eat. This is normal. Just what to eat? And will there be any man left after such feeding? Poison can also be eaten. But most often once ...

          Black death, it is the strongest plague in history, as the most likely place for the start of the epidemic, many historians point to Theodosius that in the Crimea .. not a single plague came to Europe from China, it’s simply not possible for the carrier to live so long (travel for months then from China)

            from the article "What world epidemics came from China" from the site Russian Seven
            All experts agree that the disease came to Europeans from the east. And although in those years no one conducted clinical trials, many scientists believe that the focus of infection arose in China around 1320. The plague moved west along with trade caravans, and by 1345 it reached the lower Volga, and from there the infection was brought to the Crimea. It is believed that it was there that the Genoese merchants caught the disease, which soon spread throughout Western Europe.
            in addition to the "black plague", such pandemics as the "Spanish flu", the Hong Kong flu, the Asian flu, and the plague of the 19th century came from China.

      1) eat well, regularly and tasty.

      2) return mandatory state standard specifications for food products, and not false specifications.

      3) to enable people in our country to make good money so that they have enough, even if not for organic products, but for high-quality products.

      4) to develop the Russian agricultural sector. Maximum import substitution and maximum subsidies. We must feed ourselves well.

    Not "modeled" in one way or another, crop and livestock products do not give stable and abundant harvests. Edo has long been known !!!
    The question is, what are they feeding us ???

    However, the disappearance of the normal taste of fruits and vegetables in city stores - also from hormones.
    I will not comment on everything. Fighting "Big Food" propaganda is deadly and useless. I will only comment on this. Dear expert. The smell and taste of vegetables disappeared because in this way it was possible to radically increase their shelf life. ALL, wholly and completely all food products are completely genetically modified. There are no exceptions. Moreover, the bulk of materials against genetic modification are generously paid by the same people who pay for genetic modification. Why? Try to think. Themselves.

      In general, all plant varieties can be called mutants, for example, carrots were not orange at all, they were purple, traditional breeding has long ceased, mutations are caused by chemistry and radiation, no one wants to spend 50 years of life for a new tomato variety

        In nature, new subspecies appear by natural selection, and during selection, new varieties are obtained by crossing two organisms of the same species. Selection itself is based on the laws of nature, and unlike genetic engineering, it does not interfere with the genotype of organisms and does not pollute the ecology of the planet. And as scientists say, the selection has not yet exhausted itself, and even very much.

          Is selection not interfering with the genotype? With the same genotype, approximately the same organisms are obtained. Therefore, there should not be a difference between the wild game apple and the apple of the Semirenko variety. However, the fruits are different. Selection is the change in the genotype in favor of those traits that a person needs. But unlike genetic engineering, the process of obtaining a new variety lasts much longer

      Often, GMOs may be hidden behind the E indices. However, this does not mean that all E supplements contain GMOs or are transgenic. It is simply necessary to know in which exactly E can, in principle, contain GMOs or their derivatives.
      First of all, it is soya lecithin or lecithin E 322: binds water and fats together and is used as a fat element in milk mixes, cookies, chocolate, riboflavin (B2) otherwise known as E 101 and E 101A, can be produced from GM- microorganisms. It is added to cereals, soft drinks, baby food and weight loss products. Caramel (E 150) and xanthan (E 415) can also be produced from GM grain.
      Other additives that may contain GM components: E 153, E 160d, E 161c, E 308-9, E-471, E 472a, E 473, E 475, E 476b, E 477, E479a, E 570, E 572, E 573, E 620, E 621, E 622, E 633, E 624, E 625, E951.

              What are your years. Well, without laughter, it’s the purest chemistry, like acetic acid. All this came from our poverty. I think now you do not drink tea with acid, but with lemon or lime, and you make tomatoes pickled cucumbers with at least apple cider vinegar but not acid. And before that it was a deficit.

    Alas. We, in Russia, have planting material all from Western monopolists. angry
    Monsanto Corporation, the world's largest producer of transgenic seeds and the holder of most patents for agricultural GM crops, announced a "long-term agreement" with the German company Bayer Cropscience, also the largest player in the GMO market.

        About nitrates and other "fertilizers" are where, in different ways.
        It happened that they rained, it happened differently.
        But, the variety of any chemistry, such as it is now, WAS NOT!
        And our people could always take care of themselves. We didn’t go to buy any preserves in the store before. Much less, because everyone was preparing to "winter" for years to come.
        There was a shortage of lids for home preservation, I remember it well, and the canned goods of their store, this was completely past our people, in general.

          This is also not an option - to do homework. And not everyone likes to poke around the earth after a working day, it was more from poverty and from empty counters. Everyone should do his own thing: heal a doctor, teach a teacher, sharpen a turner, and a peasant grow and feed a doctor, engineer and turner.

              This is a hobby. I myself am a fisherman and hunter, but not a vegetable grower. The wife at the country house also plants flowers, but will not plant potatoes - it is easier to buy from a local farmer. The phenomenon of summer residents was in the 80s, the beginning of the nineties, when the shops had a ball of Katya, and now many villagers are not very busy with the garden plot - you can buy everything. I don’t argue: it’s interesting for someone to grow tomatoes, and for someone to sit with fishing rods in a boat.

      The logic is iron. But people simply did not die before because they ate meat and organic products, but simply that there was nothing to eat and nothing to eat. For me, this is not a simple sound; I still found a child as a time when beggars roamed the villages and asked for a piece of bread or potatoes.

    In botany is not strong, however, having a personal plot something has to be mastered. Now it’s not possible to grow potatoes without treating with Colorado potato beetle pesticides. The poison, which is wrapped in a leaf of a potato bush for 3-4 weeks, clearly does not contribute to the environmental friendliness of the vegetable. There are also new items. Coat the seed potatoes with some kind of pink liquid or aerosol and do not need to process the crop for the entire growing season. It is so not tasty for the bug that it does not even fly into the area. And then how do you eat this potato? But you will not process it, there will be no potatoes, it will eat a bug, back in June.

      Take the leaves of hazel (hazel), drive it through a meat grinder, pour the gruel with water (a bucket of 2 liters of hazel, 6-7 liters of water) water 2-3 times a day. Choreally but working. If you pay attention, there are never any pests on the hazel.

    This article is partly just a useless statement of fact, and partly a fearless horror story. That is, the article is about nothing.

    Moreover, the title of the article does not correspond to its content. Namely, it is titled "Genetically modified food. What mankind eats", and the content of the article is about hormones and other substances used in plant growing. Genetic engineering, on the one hand, and agrochemicals, on the other, are completely different phenomena. But the author of the article does not understand this at all, although for understanding it is enough to finish the last grades of a comprehensive school.

    But in essence the topic of the article - well, we eat genetically modified food. Well, some suspect that this is harmful, although without convincing evidence. Well, so what? However, we live longer and longer .... And what is the contribution of such food to this - also a question for study.

      A special pride of our experts is the potato, from which the Colorado potato beetles die. For environmentalists, he is the main irritant. Experts say that when eating transgenic potatoes in rats, a change in blood composition occurs, a change in the size of internal organs, and pathologies appear in much larger quantities than when eating ordinary potatoes.

          One friend of mine (thank God, his dacha is a kilometer away) brought out the Colorado potato beetle very simply. I watered the whole garden with "Roundup" from Mansanta. The potato has not grown for two years, the Colorada also does not, in general, either the Sahara or Vietnam. I came to visit him, I look everything is empty, but the green onion is already more than half a meter, and he puts it on the table, and the glass fell out of my hands.

      The longer? Mortality was 7 people per 1000 in Soviet times, and now 13. Oncology is growing due to GMOs. Our blood and our cells lack natural trace elements. But if you eat any one food and bite all the other trace elements and vitamins at the expense of tablet vitamins, then do not stretch it for a long time. Now, such additives have come up with the idea that the protein structure has even changed and this will not lead to good. Even if you pour bad gasoline into a car, how long will it last without breakage? So is man, we are still a living creature and we need a natural that grows without interference. You look at the fact that weeds are growing, know what benefits they can bring? Ooromnoy if properly used, and the farmers are trying to corrode them all and there would be no unemployed to collect and let them pull out as far back as Soviet times went out in villages. And the same gophers, the same jerboas and other animals would be alive, otherwise our grandchildren will get everything in the pictures. We kill ourselves. More precisely, manufacturers of GMOs want to kill us and fill their wallets for their profit

    The thing that drives and sprays it for the most part from weeds, mainly the drug "Tornado". Any plant or animal breed is GMO. Previously, gene changes were achieved for decades, now in 5-10 years. With new breeds, varieties, you need to be careful, I remember they wanted to cross African bees, they give a lot to honey, but the evil ones, with the European ones, give less honey, but good ones. The resulting hybrid turned out to be angry like a dog, and did not give honey at all. The bees somehow escaped to freedom, now in the USA 200-300 people die every year from these bees. I remember we dreamed of getting cows with sable genes, milk, meat, plus beautiful fur.

    Without GMO plants, the world is waiting for hunger. This is elementary mathematics - the number of sown lands does not increase, but decreases, and the population grows. This means that yields must be sharply increased from the existing sown lands, and by all known methods this has already been done and given. The limit is reached. You can’t grow wheat in ploschachki and greenhouses, these are not tomatoes. Now only genetic engineering can make a difference. Now Russia is far behind in this area due to legislative barriers introduced by all sorts of deputies to athletes without a higher education and the like, who do not think about the future of the camp, but live one day. In the future, this will lead to complete dependence on imports of products from abroad. And we will buy GMOs. The circle is closed. I’ll say to uneducated and illiterate people that if a person eats a rabbit, then the rabbit’s genes don’t surrender to him. So why then should the rabbit genes in carrots be transmitted to humans? Think with your head, not telecom with Prokopenko.

      I would not expect hunger if everyone went out to work. There are so many empty lands everywhere - please grow cattle, grow plants. So many abandoned factories after the Soviet Union can still raise production and not small ones. But a third of the population is now lazy. Everyone wants the state to bring them on a tray and not finger to finger. It is only necessary from the state to reduce tax rates and make the law on Tunisism as it was before, and I’m sure you can raise a lot and don’t buy from somewhere it’s not clear what.

    The author did not fully understand the problem, our legislation prohibits the use of GMOs, except for their use for scientific purposes, the normative act is on the network, signed by Putin. A young potato in March is a potato on the Russian markets mainly from Egypt, it ripens earlier, yet it is all in the sand. In general, potatoes should be selected according to the principle - the dirtier the better, all imported potatoes washed, especially Israeli ones, undergo radiation monitoring at the border and should be washed. For other vegetables and fruits, about the content of nitrates and the level of radiation, buy a household dysimeter and nitratomer in one device, it even measures the level of this muck in meat and water

        Where is that? - So it was where there was little land and there were a lot of people and the people preferred to live under the master, and in other countries, too. There were some small towns in Russia (they moved to America for the same reason) Medicine, of course, was not as such, and indeed, it was not possible to have machines with independent energy and personal resources at hand, etc. (due to the development of science, although of course they mined which in a superficial way) The main problem was in the "security" which was actually provided independently or with the help of a feudal lord (consider a bandit roof).

      For example, ancient people often ate bark. Well, just nature did not bother them to make gardens. And so many populations that have lived in very specific conditions for generations have learned to eat one sweet potato, or one fish, and even are highly resistant to cadaveric poison, which allows them to eat certain types of rotten food, from which a person not from their population simply grasses. But bread and bleached in Russian villages before the damned Stalin and collectivization in general is a common thing. And not because the peasants could eat it, but because there was no choice. Acorns still say you can crush flour.

    Since the author did not go to school, I explain. The genetic material in the total mass of food is a fraction of a percent, and since we are not bacteria with horizontal gene transfer, all this gets into the stomach and it simply collapses there. Therefore, GMOs are no more dangerous than artificially bred varieties and breeds.

    I do not like that the bull is fed with steroids so that it grows? Well, go to Africa and run there for the antelope along with the blacks, who are not that about GMOs, about livestock, perhaps they have not heard. Despite this, many live quite well there. In harmony with themselves, because they don’t worry, neither for the lack of an iPhone, nor for the fact that they will die, most likely, before they reach 40.

    The fear of GMOs is treated only with haloperidol injections; no other discussion with witnesses to the sect of opponents of GMOs is possible. Well, or legally deprive those who are against progress, the right to use its fruits. Evict to Siberia and let them plow on horses without equipment, fertilizers and advanced varieties.

    However, the disappearance of the normal taste of fruits and vegetables in city stores - also from hormones.


    Not so long ago, my relatives ran into foolishly in Thailand. From there I brought a whole bunch of exotic fruits that I have not heard of, and they are not sold here. And having tried, I immediately understood why. Because they are all complete rubbish, in contrast to the usual apples and watermelons in Europe (which were not red in the 17th century), which over the centuries of selection have brought to excellent taste. So the natural taste of the fruit is, as a rule, the very taste that, for example, has a small wild forest cherry. Frankly speaking, there are a few exceptions, first of all, it is wild wild strawberry, which is simply unrealistic to grow in prom. scale, it is small, it wrinkles, requires shading, and all cultivars are dry. So a bucket of strawberries is if not a truffle for the price, then close, a delicacy for the sake of which you can raise your ass and go for kilometers to the forest. Well, or tomatoes, which are really too soft, so they grow more delicious varieties in the gardens, but store them only as they eat, throwing out a bunch of rotten ones along the way, and they sell in the shops more suitable for storage but hard and therefore unattractive varieties.
