The Question for the week !

I know that I'm only allowed one question a week on here --- lol --- But here goes

Really - Creesrb gave me this idea the other day - question - But it pertains to GMO versus Non GMO


Why do you feed either or ????


The reason I ask - as many of you know - we farm here in East Central Indiana and just curious on your thoughts ---


Thanks


Doc

I would prefer to have the choice to consume GMO's and given the choice i would shy away from their consumption. The data is still not clear to how the long term consumption will begin to manifest to our overall health.

I'm with Fitzmar. I do worry about crops which are genetic clones. It would be too easy for a disease to get loose which would kill them all. Like the Irish potato famine, only with worldwide consequences.

Genetic clones are different from genetically modified. Many times in the extreme cases of a particular crop failure the aberration that survives would be the prime candidate for cloning.

Ah Kenny,

So impatient--must be the snow. I saw the question yesterday but was about to get booted from the library computer so I didn't reply.

Bottom line for me is that my reply would have been and still identical Mary Jo's--exempt for reading about what they are trying these days in genetic modification (because I find it interesting) I don't pay any attention to it.

And here's bonus answer to the earlier question you posed about what we were all doing about the various lettuce crops causing illness from (samonela? e-coli?--can't remember which it was now.

When the first announcement came out I was about half way through a head of Romaine and the general area it came from was one of the areas which was indighted and named and you were supposed throw all of any lettuce from the area away. I was making dinner (and I have been on this grinding diet designed to actually make me loss weight and get my blood pressure down)--so a lot of dinners were in the category of grass clippings and dandelion greens (with no salt). At least Romaine tastes like something--I though about it briefly and then reaiized if I was going to get sick from this stuff I should have already been sick--I'd been eating it for four days.

I ignored the bulletin for the second outbreak and kept eating that lettuce too--I figure I grew up before everyone got so determined to make kids diets dirt and bacterial content free. So I grew up making mud pies (and yes--we ate a few of them too) and my family (who never resisted the temptation to tell embarrassing stories about family members) had been telling the story about the Sunday they were out catching grasshoppers (the big kind from the Midwest farm states) to fishing. I was not quite walking so I must have been about 8 months and was sitting on a blanket in the field and someone noticed that I was eating something--turned out to be grasshoppers--and evidently I had been pretty successful at catching them. All I can say is ICK!

Anyway I seem to be pretty impervious to food bourn stuff--even when I was in Mexico a lot I ate off street carts and never got sick--I didn't drink the water--stuck to coffee, beer and Doctor Pepper.

DocK-that's your quota of answers from me for this week.

My mom caught my brother chowing down in the dog's dish (canned food) at about that age, Bug. Nowadays they SAY dog food is made with people grade food (some of them anyway), but back then.......

Thanks for your replies - Was just wondering peoples thoughts on the food we raise - Years ago - there was a discussion on this matter . Personally - I have raised both GMO and Non GMO - With the Non - it does take lots more crop management and does cost more money ( Sometimes ) than the GMO , as far as bug control -

Everybody have a great day !

Doc

I personally try to stay away from GMO’s as much as possible. Many country’s have banned them, but here in the US we have lobbyists with deep pockets I.e. Monsanto lining the pockets of our politicians to get them to vote in their favor. Gluten into,stance high risen sharply since the increase in GMO’s and there are some studies showing that these people can handle gluten products made from organic non GMO grains, suggesting that it’s actually the glyphosate causing the sensitivity. There are also some links to GMOs and the decline of the bee population.
