Genetically Modified

In the article “A Lonely Quest for Facts on Genetically Modified Crops” by Amy Harmon about GMOs, Greggor Ilagan is just one Hawaiian councilman fighting a ban on genetically modified crops.

The stigma behind GMOs is reflective of the stigma attached Gmo交易比特币 to many scientific advancements we’ve seen over the last century, things like stem-cell research and investigation of life beyond Earth. The people involved and informed on this research are not the majority–and our country attempts to reject what it does not understand.

Here’s the lowdown on GMOs. They’re basically like any other food, just with a little something extra to help them grow faster, become immune to diseases they would normally be Gmo交易比特币 susceptible to, etc. This is the case for the two foods already being modified in this Hawaii community–corn and papaya.

But the community, led by the ban’s sponsor Margaret Wille, thinks enough is enough. Her bill proposes to “ban the cultivation of any genetically engineered crop on the island, with the exception of the two already grown there,” in addition to a $1000 penalty to anyone conducting field tests for new GMO Gmo交易比特币 crops on the island.

What seems to be Wille’s biggest worry is the companies that conduct this research, more than the food itself. While the other Hawaiian islands have large corporate presence, there is next to none on the Big Island. Her bill is a preventative measure to keep these companies from gaining a foothold on the Gmo交易比特币 Gmo交易比特币 local land.

But that’s not the only area affected by this bill. By passing this ban, it prevents the island of Hawaii from numerous benefits of genetic engineering of crops. What if another crop is devastated by disease like the papaya was? What if one crop is affected by the changing climate and weather and can no longer be grown under local conditions alone?

The study of genetically modified food has been repeatedly Gmo交易比特币 proven to be safe and effective, yet the stigma is still here. Why? Why do countless Americans insist on ignoring definitive scientific evidence?

GMOs are not evil. The science behind them is not dangerous. The only harm that can come from the research and growth of GMOs would be directly caused by ethical lapses, for which we have numerous checks and balances in place. Just because a corporation may be funding the science does not mean they have some illicit agenda–it simply means they wish to help further the science and benefits of more efficient growth of the food we eat everyday.

In addition, multiple companies and other sources of GM foods have started the wonderful trend called ‘Labeling’! So, if you’re against GMOs for whatever reason, just don’t eat them!

It’s high time we start spreading the truth about scientific research in America, and stop listening to the people who don’t know what they’re talking about.

Research Library

timeline of GMO research over the last 20 years

Over the Gmo交易比特币 years, we have assembled an anthology of GMO’s most notable published research, a collection we’ve taken to calling ‘GMO Required Reading’ that we think remains valuable for investors today. Highlights Gmo交易比特币 include viewpoints from around the 2000 internet bubble, the 2008-09 financial crisis, and Gmo交易比特币 other key moments of the last few decades.

What are gmos?

GMO stands for Genetically Gmo交易比特币 Modified Organism. Let’s break it down word by word. Genetically refers to genes. Genes are made up of DNA, which is a set of instructions for how cells Gmo交易比特币 Gmo交易比特币 grow and develop. Second is Modified. This implies that some change or tweak has been Gmo交易比特币 made. Lastly, we have the word Organism. When it comes to GMOs, many people only think of crops. Yet an ‘organism’ isn’t just a plant; it refers to all living things, including bacteria and fungi.

With that in mind, GMOs are living beings that have had their genetic code changed in some way. While conventional breeding, which has been going on for centuries, involves mixing all of the genes from two different Gmo交易比特币 sources, producing a GMO is much more targeted. Rather than crossing two plants out in the field, they insert a gene or two into individual cells in a lab. Yet, as mentioned earlier, GM technology can also be used on microorganisms. For example, Gmo交易比特币 bacteria have been genetically modified to produce medicines that can cure diseases or vaccines that Gmo交易比特币 prevent them. A commonly used medicine that comes from a genetically modified source is Gmo交易比特币 insulin, which is used to treat diabetes, but there are many others.

The process to create a GMO starts very small. A scientist causes a gene to be inserted into the DNA in the nucleus of a single cell. The DNA being used for the modification is so small that it can’t be seen, even under the most powerful microscope. Despite how tiny a cell is, there is a massive amount of DNA all packaged into its one little nucleus. To give some idea of just how much DNA is packed into that small space, if you were to take all the DNA of one single corn cell out of the nucleus and line it up end-to-end, it would be about six feet long! Into this enormous amount of DNA, a very small piece is inserted. A vast majority of the organism’s genetic code Gmo交易比特币 remains completely unchanged by the process.

Once this single cell has been modified, the scientist will treat it with naturally occurring plant hormones to stimulate growth and development. This one cell will start to divide (which is the natural growth process for any organism) and the resulting cells begin to take on specialized functions, until they become a Gmo交易比特币 whole plant. Because this new plant was ultimately derived from a single cell with the inserted gene, all of the cells in the regenerated plant contain that new gene.
