Scientists develop PURPLE tomatoes to create 2,000 litres of modified fruit juice set to reap multiple health benefits

  • The tomatoes, which are genetically modified, developed by UK scientists
  • Have anti-inflammatory effects and shown to slow down cancer in mice
  • The colour of the tomatoes is derived from high levels of anthocyanins
  • There are normally found in blueberries, blackberries and other berries

So if we genetically modify our tomatoes will they became purple ones? F.ck we need this in the next patch.

genetic modification? no thanks every gmo food is basically a health killer hence the reason why they are banned in most countries.

 

if someone gave me them i would dunk them straight into the bin.

 

but yeah anyway nothing special.

That's bs.

 

Plant/animal breeding is a thousands year old thing and basically everything you eat is genetically modified. The wheat your bread is made of(and there are hundreds of different species) is not the same as it was 5000 years ago. It grows faster, more resistant, yields more, etc. Same goes for the animals.

thats natural selection not Genetic modification two very different things the first one is basically natural breeding and natural selection where farmers select the best cows that produce milk to mate with the best cows that produce alot of meat so that way you are not changing the charatistics of the cows. and also you talked about evolution so both have nothing to do with Genetic modification

 

genetic modification is where you physically change the propoties of and animal or plant in a lab to suite your needs for example some gmo plants can produce pesticides which would be impossible for natural plants to do. then we pick those plants the pesticides get put onto our food if they aren't washed properly (also they taste slightly worse than the original/natural plant it'self).

 

two very different things.

It has nothing to do with natural selection. Selective breeding is artificial not natural. That's how we domesticated animals/plants found in the wild and made them "better".

Crap..now I hate my engelse is not good inough ( grammar),to give a proper answer to that,but in short,a lot of food is made (better?) by genetic mods. A Whole lot of " healthy" stuff also.

yes but genetic engineering is done in a LAB not out on the field. Selective breeding in a sense isn't really artifical since animals do it anyway regardless if there are humans controlling it or not. domesticated animals has nothing to do with genetic engineering either. in the wild you will find animals are killed by their own because they are not desirable not every animal does this but some do. so natural selection/selective breeding really isn't that artifical at all.

 

considering the fact that Genetic modification is actually changing or adding bits of DNA to a cell directly through needles and such. the tomatoes where modified in a lab not grow out in a field (at some point they will be but their creation is not from nature) also what kind of tomato is anti-flammable? none because nature doesn't but chemicals on/in it's food or wildlife.

yeah of course most of the food we eat is made by monsanto or some other giant food company or at least supplied. the thing is with gmos now is that companies could careless (like they have always) whether the product harms the human body or not. so they ust put it onto the shelf and wait for the money to appear because thats all they care about.

The result is the same, whether you achieve it by genetic engineering or breeding it doesn't really matter. You change the properties of an animal/plant. The two thing is the same.

 

The "i'm not eating that GMO crap because it's unhealthy" part is still bs. They were never proven to be unhealthy.

They are not banned at all, but labelled(at elast in the eu i think). You can choose if you want to buy it or not, but most likely you already ate lots of GMO stuff.

i think you need to search on the internet more and dig deeper. the result isn't the same because if you want to put chemicals directly into cell you must use genetic modification. if you want certain properties from and animal or plant you will use selective breeding.

 

the im not eating GMO crap because it's unhealthy is far from bs im guessing you go on bbc news? or some other government funded news channel? i suggest looking at the evidence that is out there on the internet there is loads of it. why not take some time and see for your self and i would suggest looking at multiple websites 'offical' and non-offical and see for your self.

 

it is banned mostly in the EU but only spain and one other country gets to grow and use gmo's.

 

yeah i can choose whether to buy it or not but people like you need to know that one humans can not simply play god and two that companies like monsanto who developed AGENT ORANGE is now producing our FOOD. so it's quite serious why do you think aspartame is banned in the uk? because of the things it did to children and adults. also aspartame was developed (by accident) by monsanto and were considering using it as a weapon but changed their minds.

 

it's hard to find natural food anyway since most of what we eat is crap anyway. but it doesn't help that people do such things.

 

why are we argueing about this?

anyway it's too bloody early to argue about GMO's let alone anything so lets just give it a rest and call it day i understand we both have conflicting view points so i don't see any point in continuing.

 

have a nice day.

Barney is correct.

Genetically engineering food crops is a ticking bomb.

We know next to nothing about this science and yet we gamble with the food chain.
