If you posted this on facebook, I'm sure quite a few smug young men would think you to be a health pseudoscience idiot, wrongly or not.

Florida has great potential for permaculture.
I don't know if you have a plot of land yet or not, but the best time to plant a tree is now! If I had land in Florida I'd be planting tropical fruits yesterday! One of the easiest things to get going with very low maintenance!

Genetically modified rape seed, for instance, has contaminated the natural populations of wild mustard.


Now, GMO crops are supposed to be terminated crops, right? ie, not be fertile and have no risk of cross pollination?

But this isn't the case, unfortunately. It's not 100% effective, and the genes are getting out. We're playing with fire here, potentially altering gene pools of entire genera.

I'm not your ignorant alarmist mom by a long shot, but this issue isn't so black and white. I support science and genetic research, and genetic engineering in the scope of research, but we're really not doing a good job with the whole GMO business at the moment.
#14 - twoboobs (01/07/2015) [-]
Granted. But I hope you see the point about GMOs. It's not as simple as it seems. Yes, on paper, genetic engineering can be a boon and perhaps may not have inherent dangers.


But transgenic crops in the way that they are implemented today are dangerous for human health and for our environment for the reasons simply outlined.

Hopefully down the line we'll be using genetic engineering in a more enlightened way.

Good luck with your permaculture endeavors. It can be a real challenge, but it's a well worth it life journey.

Having trees on your property which yield hundreds of pounds of fruit with little maintenance and input is grrrrreat!

I'd challenge the people who smugly defend GMOs to name a half dozen transgenic crops, and what traits they're modified for.

The industry uses double speak. They claim GMOs can make us use less herbicides, which may be true, but they produce crops designed to have more herbicide applied to them, et cetera.

I dislike uneducated loud moms as much as the next person, but this view of "I understand science, GMOs are good" is quite frankly ignorant.

It's just that the ignorance of the momscience and the "educated person" are in different parts of the issue.

I'm an organic farmer in Georgia. I work on one farm and manage another.

Make no mistake, GMO crops are a huge disaster.

Now, genetically altering plants isn't inherently bad. But do you know what the GMOs actually are?

The most produced GMO crops, corn, soy, rape seed, etc,

are either engineered to withstand more Roundup herbicide, or to produce pesticide inside their flesh.

Spraying pesticide on a plant is one thing, but having that pesticide synthesized in every cell of the plant is another.

And there is no legitimate doubt over Roundup's negative effects on the human body, let alone the environment.

I've been on corn fields where you can't walk without a suit and a respirator. Meanwhile, we're growing on 5 acres and producing almost twice as much as a conventional farm would, granted with more labor but less input costs.

GMOs in the way they are now are a huge money maker for a few big corporations but they are not safe as food and they are disastrous for farmers for other reasons.

Producing grains with higher vitamin contents? Perhaps not a dangerous thing, perhaps destabilizing to the natural genetic ecosystem.

But producing crops specifically to withstand greater applications of herbicides or to produce bt toxin in their flesh will lead to more harmful food for we the consumers, and that's very simple to see.

i'm familiar with the arms race between the rapidly evolving superpests, gmos, and pesticides. It's a train wreck and is setting us up for disaster. Personally its one of the main reasons i try to stay far away from soy-based products, that and the fact that soy contains xenoestrogens. I live in north florida near the border with georgia so the only kind of agriculture i usually see is pine trees and cattle. when i think of the benefits of gmo i would think of bigger food, or more nutritious food. or crops that are more resistant to the cold and so can be grown in colder climates than we could before. but i see the potential for environmental havoc if the crops start spreading into the natural ecosystem, it would be like invasive species of the worst kind.

I'm not impressed with your post. You're not an expert in any of these fields.

Granted, loud moms can be annoying to some.

Trying to eat healthier is a good thing no matter how you cut it.

Corporations trying to capitalize on people's ignorance with buzzwords and unsubstantiated claims hurts everyone,

that doesn't mean that, for instance, organic food which isn't sprayed with Roundup isn't a good thing. Roundup is the stuff that's put on your lawn before they put up that "Caution: Do not walk on the lawn" sign up.

D.A.R.P.A is working on a sort of exo-skeleton that would allow people to lift intensely heavy loads with near minimal effort. Japan has also used these sorts of things for factory work, allowing older employees to lift lots of stuff easily. in other words, if we make it right, carrying heavy stuff wont be a problem.
