Problem, reaction, solution?
GM bananas are likely to be approved in Australia by April, after being submitted to regulators.
If passed, it would not only make them the world’s first GM bananas, but also the first genetically-modified fruit available for cultivation and consumption at home.
The banana, known as QCAV-4, has been “engineered” by scientists to ‘become resistant to the fungus known as Panama disease’, which has reportedly caused havoc on the Cavendish industry.
As a ‘solution’ to this fungus, GM bananas are now set to replace them.
Professor James Dale from Queensland University of Technology (QUT), who led QCAV-4’s development, said the GM variety “…offered a safety net for growers in the event that the Australian industry was wiped out by TR4”.
A very ‘conveniently’ timed outbreak to occur in recent years throughout this industry, on the road to Agenda 2030 and the total transformation of our food systems.
And an even more ‘convenient’ ‘solution‘ to emerge in response to the decline of this fruit.
Leon Collins, chair of the Australian Banana Growers’ Council, had this to say:
Food Standards Australia (FSANZ) recently called for public comment on the banana, and have assured that “…the future sale of any genetically-modified fruits would be clearly labelled for consumers”.
The research team says they are not planning on immediately releasing the banana for commercial production or consumption if approved, but it is certainly waiting in the wings. Perhaps to see who the highest bidder will be first, like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The last decade has witnessed ‘the gates become unlocked’ in regards to genetically-modified crops here in Australia, following a string of de-regulations and lifting of long-standing bans.
GM FOODS IN AUSTRALIA
TOTT News has covered the rise of genetically-modified organisms and evolving techniques since the very beginning of our website, and now we are witnessing the full-scale arrival.
In 2012, a younger and naïve Ethan (who thought politics was real) sent a letter to then-Prime Minister Julia Gillard about my concerns over calls for the introduction of genetically-modified wheat.
For years, three genetically modified crops have grown in Australia: cotton, canola and safflower.
This has begun to snowball since that last map was developed, with multiple states lifting longstanding bans on GM crops to allow for greater circulation (no longer needed at special testing sites).
Over time, it’s not just the ‘modification’ of existing crops that have become the concern. It is the ‘Frankenstein’ food that has been given the green light as well.
New advancements in technology have allowed for the rise of fake food, lab-grown food, and more.
In 2019, Australia moved to deregulate many controversial gene-editing techniques:
The recent discovery of a ‘supercharged’ CRISPR technique will allow scientists the opportunity to transform seeds, crops and foods in a way that ‘connects them to the environment’.
And now, we are witnessing next-generation CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing techniques coming to Europe to completely upheaval the system, with Italy banning lab-grown food to fight back.
Indeed, it is not just bananas that are set to go to the wayside. The goal is to replace everything we consume with more ‘sustainable’ freak foods engineered by scientists.
There has never been a better time to regain control of our food sovereignty.
