Most people are unaware of the concept of hybrid foods or the
dangers consuming these foods pose to our bodies. Hybrid foods
are those whose parents belong to different animal or plant
species which have been crossed through human manipulation
for specific genetic characteristics.
In this day and age many of the plants we like to eat are vastly
different from their original genetic makeup. This began with
Charles Darwin’s suggestion that animals and plants could adapt
and change over time to allow them to survive in a changing
world. It was only with Gregor Mendel’s work on genetics that
man truly learned the extent to which we could control the
genetics of species.
Mendel found that he could predict the traits of certain pea plants
depending on what two plants he bred together. He believed there
to be a genetic basis for this and in understanding this basis he
demonstrated he could control them.
The rediscovery of Mendel’s work initiated the genetic
modification of plants and animals. As through Mendel’s work
science was given the means to alter anything with a genetic
The Advantages and Disadvantages of HybridsPlant breeding took off after the rediscovery. The scientist breeding them often noticed the hybrids were stronger and provided higher yields. This can be seen in the first extensively marketed hybrid crop.. corn.
These hybrids had a number of advantages such as them being
more resistant to bugs, providing larger yields and also having a
shorter growing time.
However they are not without their disadvantages. Many of these
hybrid plants are more expensive, must be bought every planting
season and require a larger amount of water and fertilisers to
The real question on everyone's minds with regards to these
hybrids isn’t their potential advantages and disadvantages
however. The real question is are they healthy or are they
hazardous? Are these genetic crosses safer than their original?
The answer to the question of health is generally no. Most hybrid
fruits contain a larger amount of sugar than they originally did
which has added to the stress being put on the liver and
pancreas. The original fruits have been found to be healthier and
have more nutritional value.
The answer to the scarier question of are they safe is a more
ambiguous one. In 1989 a Japanese company caused at least 37
deaths and 1500 injuries as a result of distributing a genetically
modified amino acid L-tryptophan. Hybrids have also been found
to have a larger amount of toxins absorbed from their
It is generally better to stay clear of hybrid foods. While they are
abundant in our everyday world, they have less nutrition and a
higher amount of toxins..Hybrids nowadays are bred solely for
profit and offer more harm than anything else. These hybrids have
destructive effects on your body and these effects are being
hidden by the corporations.
Nature be NatureIn conclusion, hybrids are hazardous to people’s health and in order to live a healthy lifestyle it is certainly best to stay clear of these toxic ridden products of science.
