I did not expect when I first started off writting blogs, that I would be talking about
gene edited vegetables LMAO!
So I’ll let you know what it says & then react to it below 🙂
In the US, the first Crispr-edited mustard greens have hit the shelves.
This type of mustard green has been gene-edited to make it tastier, in hopes that customers will choose it over less nutritious salad options.
Ahahahaha really ?!
The mustard greens aren’t the first genetically edited food to be sold, in 2021, a Crispr-edited version of tomatoes was sold in Japan, which was meant to help relieve stress and lower blood pressure.
Unlike GMOs, which are made by adding genetic material from a completely different species, gene editing involves changing an organism’s own genes.
This means that new plant varieties can be created much quicker than with GMOs.
Pairwise hopes to use this technology to make healthy foods more attractive to the public, for example by changing their flavour, or making them grow without seeds.
It’s lab food, even if they edit what it tastes like, there is always a price with it, some side effect you know, but this is crazy that we are even talking about this wow!
The introduction of gene-edited fruits and vegetables in a world that is currently struggling to eat enough greens brings up the question, are Crispr-edited fruits and vegetables the future of healthy eating, or are they just a market niche which will go unnoticed by most.
Well if they do this, they will have to market it, to claim that is really better, I very much doubt they would be naive just to have it there and not push the claim that it’s better than actual food.
Does gene-editing solve the 5-a-day problem?
In the UK, the most quoted reason for not eating enough vegetables is the cost.
Although raw vegetables, such as carrots, can be bought quite cheaply, a varied amount of fruit and vegetables as well as ready cooked vegetables may be expensive for some.
Gene editing could potentially help this problem, as it can be used to make plants grow bigger or to contain more of the parts that we eat.
However, when used to remove seeds or enhance flavour, it is likely that genetically edited fruits and vegetables would be more expensive, since they would be seen as the more convenient variety.
Well of course it will be more, so in that way it makes it even more reason to push the public to buy it by claiming that it’s much better, get some z list puppets to promote it with a dazzle of D, C & B along with media brainwashing & they will run to the stores for sure and pay, even though they could not afford the fruit and veg now, this will cost more!
Another common reason for why people claim not to eat their 5-a-day, is because fruits and vegetables aren’t convenient.
For many vegetables, you need to set aside time in your day to cook them, and if you are out and about, it may be difficult to find a vegetable filled meal in a fast-food restaurant.
This a very common reasons, and it’s all CAP!
Most vegetables if it really came to it, you can eat raw anyway, and if you cook them, it’s not like it takes long to cook at all, it takes longer to cook meat, and they eat that no ?
It’s down to desire, and they just don’t desire it, if it’s something you want on your plate, you will find the time, stop this CAP.
Oh, there is just not the time it’s B.S, as for fruit not being convenient too please, there are fruits with skin on them, you can carry it around with no mess, the truth is these that they this would rather go around with chocolate buttons in their pocket instead, excuses, excuses…
Be honest, those that come out with this B.S.
Gene editing may help with some convenience issues, for example pit-less cherries might be more convenient to eat or some vegetables can be gene-edited to require less cooking time; however,
currently Pairwise seems to be aiming to make the public’s groceries a bit healthier, rather than making fruits and vegetables more convenient to buy and prepare, which is arguably the more
important factor affecting the amount of healthy food we eat.
I mean I’m not a fan of seeds at all! It’s just annoying like in Oranges, some of them have them others not..
However would I pay more just not to have seeds in them, It’s not that big of a deal
plus this is fake food been made in a lab, so there will be side effects, we just don’t know what it is yet, so I’m good with the real real.
As for this cooking time, it’s really nonesense, you can cook veg quicker than meat & fish, so what is all this, oh it takes so long to cook veg, do y’all know how to cook ?
Even if gene-edited food can be created to be tastier or more convenient, there is a possibility that people will be sceptical about gene-edited foods, in the same way that many are afraid of GMOs.
About half of the US adult population believes that GMOs are worse for people’s health than food which isn’t genetically engineered, even though GMOs have been found to be safe for consumption.
This mindset is likely to continue over into gene-edited foods, as people are naturally sceptical of all new food that has been created in a lab.
I’m sorry, what ?!
GMOs are safe to eat, LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
You’ve just lost all credit, you don’t know what you’re talking about, clearly & I don’t know if you know, psst!…
There is a chronic disease called OBESITY!!!!
Where in the hell do you think that comes from ?
As a wise man once said, nobody got fat off eating a salad!
They are too busy filling their own pockets, now everyone should be given a fair chance to prove themselves over time, but history has shown, those that are willing to really work on ending world hunger are the ones that just don’t have money like that, or a plan they took to action..
Then there are the few that are on the fileds as we speak doing the work, but at a much smaller scale, those that are working for a charity and doing their best, and then it’s toss up if they really do give the food to the hungry, the charity not those that working with them, after that aid for like 90 days is over!
Those that care about things like this the most, are ones that have no money, had no money and got money, those that have kept their feet on the ground and move in silence and are just taking action and you don’t even know their names.
So I don’t believe them off the bat they have plans for this, but I will be more than happy if they prove me wrong, nobody should be going hungry, even if the homeless get free food,
but then on one should be homeless either, like some wild animal no ?
These gene-edited foods are yet to be implemented; however, the first genetically edited rice crop is set to be grown in India by 2026, so we may soon see gene-edited vegetables helping the fight against global hunger.
Are gene-edited vegetables a future grocery staple?
Currently, not many varieties of genetically edited plants have been released to the public, and a lot of what we know about potential ideas for genetically engineered fruits and vegetables is just lab-tested ideas,
yet to be confirmed as a viable option.
If gene-edited foods can make healthier choices cheaper and more convenient for consumers, perhaps in a couple of years time they will replace some more inaccessible fruits and vegetables,
but for now the idea seems more likely to become a health-niche than a mainstream way of eating.
I mean I said it, lab food, it’s lab ideas for now LMAO!
You can keep your lab ideas, they go wrong like Dexter’s lab, and mess my body up no thank you, I’m good!
I see it like this, if this thing becomes a thing, and is sold everywhere it will cost more than real food.
If they are testing it, they could just give it to the hungry and use them like lab rats, and see what it does, some will die, others will have issues with their body
and I predict if it goes well they push it to the market place, if it was to go that far, so it’s not really out of the goodness of their heart, it’s used to test the waters.
Let’s see in 2026 and beyond what happpens with this, I’m glad to get the chance to react to this though, this was crazy!
We Look Up 大
