(NaturalNews) The term hybrid, which you'll often see in seed catalogs, refers to a plant variety developed through specific, controlled cross-breeding between two parent plants. Usually, these are naturally compatible within the same species. This is the kind of hybridization that takes place naturally in the wild. All plant breeders who respect Mother Nature simply "steer the process" to control the outcome. This not a GMO; in other words, this normal hybrid would not be the result of genetic "engineering," or modification, of organisms for agricultural profits at the risk of human health.

Open-pollination varieties use classic breeding methods, and this has been done since the beginning of agriculture. It takes about half a dozen generations to cultivate these new plant varieties, and most heirloom varieties are open-pollinated. Now, modern science is finding ways to create hybrids under controlled conditions in just one generation. But what happens when they "cull" the bad traits (separate them from the parents) and stack the good traits? Are we talking about weed resistance here? -- Because that may result in plants producing pesticides or nutritional "deficiencies." It could open up a Pandora's box and confuse consumers even more than they're already confused.

The scariest part of hybrid GM (genetically modified) seeds is that they don't produce uniform offspring, so gardeners must buy new seeds each year. That's kind of freaky and chancy. Who will be around after a drought or flood to help you? Monsanto? Bayer? Dow Chemical? DuPont? Will Home Depot or Lowe's be sold out of your favorite "hybrids"? (http://www.naturalnews.com)

As reported by Wired magazine recently:

[T]he company is introducing novel strains of familiar food crops, invented at Monsanto and endowed by their creators with powers and abilities far beyond what you usually see in the produce section. The lettuce is sweeter and crunchier than romaine and has the stay-fresh quality of iceberg. The peppers come in miniature, single-serving sizes to reduce leftovers. (http://www.wired.com)

Also, according to the Wired coverage of this atrocity, Monsanto executive Kenny Avery said, "Grocery stores are looking in the produce aisle for something that pops, that feels different."

"[E]ndowed by their creators with powers and abilities..." -- Really? Give me a break! Mixing several species from around the globe can be dangerous. Genetically modified (GM) varieties mix seed traits from several species, which rarely occurs in nature and can mean the combining of genetic material from say, bacteria to plants. The goal of GMO is to kill bugs and weeds, so "killer" bacteria are inserted into your food, essentially. Think about this long and hard. Why do you think people are fighting SO HARD to have GMO labeled on everything? Nobody knows how these "toxic" seedlings play out in nature. Will those bacteria that keep bugs from reproducing keep the humans from reproducing? Monsanto has patents and won't even allow scientists to study this phenomena - talk about scary!

Are you seeing "Burpee" labels and signs everywhere for hybrid seeds? Have you seen the humongous "steakhouse" tomato? (http://www.burpee.com)

What about heirloom plants?
Can you trust all "heirloom" seeds as being organic and not GMO? It's time to start "digging" for information:

Is it hybrid or is it GMO? - Take the seeds test

Is it hybrid or GMO, or both? Most people who have NO IDEA what they're talking about will argue that seeds have been "genetically modified" for thousands of years. This is not true. Other people use that argument to trick you into thinking that hybrid means GMO, or vice versa. Seeds are open-pollinated, hybridized through cross-breeding or genetically modified. Open pollination does include natural transferring from wind, birds and insects. Saving seeds from the best batches is how you isolate the best "genes" and hybrids. Some farmers are skilled at keeping the sweetest or juiciest fruits and vegetables this way. (http://www.smallfootprintfamily.com)

Franken-crops, Franken-bugs and Franken-weeds:

On the other end, Big Agriculture and Biotech are going insane, slowly. They are breeding livestock clones and creating horrific hybrids with deformities, reproduction problems and immune system disorders. A whole new world of Franken-crops consume America, like GMO corn, soy and canola. There are Franken-bugs which are the superbugs in fields and also the ones becoming immune to antibiotics and infesting animal blood. Top it all off with Franken-weeds that are glyphosate (Roundup herbicide) resistant, and they are multiplying and even invading organic farms.

There is good news. You can protect your seeds, your farm and your body -- the temple of your soul. Stay informed. Never eat GMOs or "one generation" hybrids. Stick to certified organic seeds, organic fertilizer, organic soil and organic spring water.
