I know, you probably have become tired of hearing about Non-GMO foods and products.
It seems that everyone is saying how bad they are for you and that you should only use these and organic forms of just about everything. There is a lot to be said, however, when it comes to GMO research and the benefits that it has in the medical industry. Without the ability to modify the genetic makeup of plants many medications would not be available to help with disease and illnesses. Did you know that many of the medications on the market are derived from plants that have been altered to provide relief. One of the most commonly used plants today is the cannabis plant. It is used for everything from pain relief to appetite enhancement. In cancer patients this can be very beneficial. Many of these strains have been modified to match the specific use and without that scientific procedure it would not be possible. There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to the process used to genetically modify a plant. I think that many people feel that some scientist is in a lab injecting their food with chemicals and pesticides. In reality, GMO fruits and vegetables have been on the market for decades. By grafting, cross pollination, and selective reproduction. Even the apple that you eat today is no longer like the original fibrous ones of years ago. When it comes to marijuana farming the Grow Master is put in charge of the development of new strains and relies heavily on people with degrees in genetics to make sure that the process is done properly.
