One GMO apple will spoil the bunch

Imagine an apple that never browns.. Never seems real. Perhaps never tastes real.. just a vacant, emotionless apple.


Welcome to your new apple, AMERICA..

Despite a big push against it, the first GMO apple in the United States was just given FDA approval. Safe to eat they say!

At this point, I don't have an opinion.. Everything has become so GMO related, it's tough to even care about it.. Fight MONSANTO and their weed killers? You're fighting an uphill battle.. The real battle is just to find your source of good, healthy, and viable organic foods.. The challenge may be difficult, but regardless of FDA approvals and certifications of safety, I still think eating a fresh and healthy bin of apples from organic growth is better than a chemically enhanced specimen that never grows brown.

But that's just me..

Reuters reports:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) approved two genetically engineered apple varieties designed to resist browning that have been developed by the Canadian company Okanagan Specialty Fruits Inc.

Okanagan plans to market the apples as Arctic Granny and Arctic Golden, and says the apples are identical to their conventional counterparts except the flesh of the fruit will retain a fresh appearance even after it is sliced or bruised.
