    • for those of you that don't know...the image she showed of a 'wild banana' is what a cavendish banana looked like before GMOs were added to it. We weren't initially meant to eat bananas, but due to shortages in food sources, food supplies, etc, they modified the banana to be what it is now. So if someone ever says 'I love an organic banana. I don't believe in GMOs', you can mess with them if you like, and break the news that their non-gmo dream just got shattered. Just a bit of a fun fact for you.

  • The banana with chocolate is actually called a Banana Boat. We made them in Girl Scouts/Girl Guides. When you cut the wedge, leave the peel attached. Add in chocolate, marshmallows, or whatever you like. Put the peel back in place, wrap it in aluminum foil, and put it at the edge of a campfire (or in a microwave) for a few minutes to let it all get melty and gooey.

  • I have no issue with GMOs. I think a lot of the fear and apprehension around them comes from misinformation. If someone you trusted told you that GMO meant someone was taking frog DNA and implanting it into human embryos, you'd probably be upset, too. The best way to combat misinformation is with research, trust and patience. Once someone has been indoctrinated to believe that vaccines cause autism and hormonal birth control is turning the frogs gay, it takes a lot to undue that damage.

  • 14:10-ish: We used to make baked bananas a little like that at guide camp on the campfire (and we were told if you want to do it at home, bake them in the oven (about 10 mins). Only difference, we peeled the banana, did just one slit down it and pressed in chocolate buttons (and occasionally sprinkles), then wrapped it tight in tinfoil to bake. In all honesty, when I've been short on money, or feeling very nostalgic, I've made it since, but it's not the world's greatest dessert (a baked apple is way better).

  • In principle I have no problem with GMO food. Earlier methods to increase rate of mutation (used since the 1950s) use radiation to induce random mutations and then kept mutated varieties that had benefits. This is not labeled as GMO I think (citation needed). So, I personally prefer this more specific introduction of the specific gene into the plant. My only problem with GMO is when they introduce a gene to make it resistant to a specific pesticide so farmers can heavily spray them, or modify a plant such that it can't grow without fertilizers from a company. It is the pesticide and the ability of farmers to afford seeds/fertilizers I worry about, not the modified plant.

I dont like gmos. I prefer all natural. But idk if I could be without bananas. If this was really a natural issue they would evolve. But humans really do cause most of the issues.

  • We have been genetically modifying food for over 10000 years or more. Pretty much everything humans eat that doesn't just grow naturally in a forest (and even then it might have been genetically modified by humans long ago and re-entered wild ecosystems) is a GMO. Orange carrots are a GMO, Corn is a GMO, Wheat is a GMO, the Cavendish Banana is a GMO, pigs are GMO, sheep are GMO even dogs are GMO. Just because we've become more efficient and can now do it over the course of 2-3 years with high-tech laboratories doesn't make it any different than selectively breeding over multiple decades.

  • Anti-GMO sentiment is idiotic fear mongering, if there were any issues we would have seen them years ago. The amount of safety testing it need for approval to market is so great that any GMO with a chance of having an issue would have been screened out anyways. GMO, unlike radiated or mutation bred crops need to be tested and labelled despite being safer as less DNA is changed and we know what the changes are, anyone who is against GMO need to pick up a secondary school (middle school) biology textbook

  • I honestly believe that if Selective Breeding is considered okay to do, then Genetic Modification is okay to do. The idea that 'messing with nature is wrong' is no longer valid reasoning. Humans have been messing with genetics since they learned agriculture. The only difference is one doesn't take as long. I mean, I know the horror story ideas of creating something ultimately dangerous to humans, but Genetic Modification is a critical step for Human development. Having food that grows faster and better could significantly help places in the world that struggle. Genetic Modifications could get rid of several genetic problems like cancer and heart disease. I could extend that average life span of not only humans, but other animals we hold dear as well.

  • I'm noticing lot's of people not understanding the difference between selective breeding and GMO's. Selective breeding is taking traits that are already present in the population and making it so that the group you want to use all has that specific trait. GMO's on the other hand is taking that trait and inserting it into the genome of the individual. It should also be noted that they use traits that are only found in different species and insert this foreign trait into the organism.

  • Id like to point out a few things regarding the banana peels: 1- "meat alternatives" do not necessarily need to be high in protein when its serving as replacement in a dish like a burger there are many ways of getting your protein it doesn't need to serve in the exact position an animal product was. there are many ways of getting your protein needs met 2- banana peels are actually healthy. Banana peels are packed with polyphenols, carotenoids, and other antioxidants that fight cancer-causing free radicals in your body which is very different from labeling them as "non toxic" or something you'd eat if there isn't enough food. 3- banana peels are clearly texturally and structurally different from animal flesh so they should be cooked differently. you should know that and the way they were cooked in this video was horrible and that was made clear by just looking at the end product. obviously I wasn't expecting a culinary masterpiece from a 5 minutes crafts video but its should be pointed out that the issue here is the the recipe and cooking method rather than the use of banana peels in itself. I get that non vegans can be unfamiliar with meat alternatives and their cooking methods but if you're going to talk about it, the least you can do is not be so condescending.

  • I think most people who are very passionately against all GMOs are maybe a bit ignorant about what GMOs are. I mean, if your whole idea about what GMOs are is Monsanto, then it's quite understandable you'd be against it. But it seems some people are afraid GMOs will cause some hormonal problems and whatnot, and surely that's more likely to happen because of certain fertilizers and pesticides, no? GMOs save lives sometimes, let's not be so against them
