SurvivalSeeds4Patriots Critical of Latest GMO Seed Approvals by Agriculture Department

More genetically-modified seeds have been approved by the Agriculture Department. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots sides with critics who want to slow down the production of genetically modified foods, at least until more testing is done.

According to a recent report from ABC News, new genetically modified seeds for corn and soybeans have been approved by the U.S. Agriculture Department.

Critics of this decision said they are concerned that the weed killer (Dow’s Enlist, a new version of its 2,4-D) that can be used without hurting the growth of these plants could endanger public health and that more study is needed on the chemical. The USDA admits that usage of the weed killer could increase by 200 to 600 percent by 2020.

SurvivalSeeds4Patriots officials agree with those lobbying for further testing of GMO seeds and those who argue that labeling of GMO foods should be required. The company highly recommends that people use only non-GMO seeds for planting, growing, harvesting and replanting in their gardens, as well as in storing for the future.

Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 open-pollinated, non-hybrid, heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini. Each order is accompanied by four guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

“After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “This strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.”

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow a garden. But after storms such as Katrina and Sandy, as well as many other extreme weather events, many people have learned the hard way that having a stockpile of emergency food is a must.

Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, offers a product line that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits.
