Princess Anne: Genetically-modified crops have benefits

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-39329933

Princess Anne has said genetically-modified crops have important benefits for providing food and she would be open to growing them on her own land.

She told BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today “we have to accept” the process could help production and livestock health.

Her brother, the Prince of Wales, has previously warned GM crops could cause an environmental disaster.

But Princess Anne said: “To say we mustn’t go there ‘just in case’ is probably not a practical argument.”

In an interview with the rural affairs programme to be broadcast on Thursday, the 66-year-old Princess Royal said she saw no problem with modifying crops if it improved their ability to grow.

“Gene technology has got real benefits to offer,” said Princess Anne, who is a working farmer and patron of nearly 50 countryside organisations.

She said gene technology would “maybe have an occasional downside but I suspect not very many”.

She added that she would be happy to use GM for crops and livestock on her own farming estate, Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire.

“We grow some very good plants here remarkably easily,” she said. “I don’t see the problem in saying ‘is there something we could do to improve their abilities?'”

Princess Anne talked about the difficulties she has experienced developing rare-breed cattle, adding long-term investment to develop suitable genetic modification to help improve their health would be a “bonus”.

she is correct of course..it benefits monsanto..nothing else..

“But Princess Anne said: “To say we mustn’t go there ‘just in case’ is probably not a practical argument.”

its not “just in case”..its proven dipshit..

“She said gene technology would “maybe have an occasional downside but I suspect not very many”.

  1. Yields fall with GM – disease rises in humans and animals – weed resistance increases – there is no advantage except to monsanto shareholders and mad scientists.

    Talk about disconnected !!

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  3. THAT IS FINE FOR PRINCESS ANNE, SHE IS A REPTILIAN HYBRID SHAPE SHIFTER, AND MODIFIED CROPS WOULD MOST LIKELY BENEFIT HER, BUT NOT FOR US THAT ARE BIOLOGICALLY AND GENETICALLY GENUINE HUMANS, AND DO NOT COME FROM A FALLEN ANGEL BLOODLINE.

      censored ideas/authors:
      graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake = conscioiusness, collective evolution, the science delusion of the materialism

      “Why the idea of consciousness is so dangerous to conventional science
      To really understand the desperation behind TED’s censorship and attempted suppression of ideas from people like Hancock and Sheldrake, you first have to understand why the idea of consciousness is so incredibly dangerous to the mythology of modern-day science.

      According to virtually all modern-day “conventional” scientists, all humans are biological robots who utterly lack consciousness, free will, and anything resembling a non-physical mind. They insist there is no soul, no God and that all spirituality is complete bunk. Meditation and prayer are hoaxes, they insist, and there is no such thing as premonition, intuition or other psychic phenomena of any kind.

      The entire system of corporate-driven science that dominates the world today depends on this “materialistic” delusion of the world. If scientists admit that humans have consciousness, then suddenly companies like Pfizer wouldn’t be able to continue conducting vaccine medical experiments on children. If scientists admit a non-physical soul survives physical death, then suddenly it makes sense that people are held accountable for their actions, and then the “scientific” pollution of the world with chemicals, mercury, GMOs and other toxins sounds downright sinful. Drug companies might even have to stop committing felony crimes to stay in business!

      If doctors admit the existence of the mind, then suddenly they cannot claim 100% power and control over the health outcomes of patients. The very idea that a patient has free will and consciousness threatens the power dominance of all conventional medical doctors. So fighting the idea of consciousness is essential to protecting the medical monopoly that enriches drugs-and-surgery doctors.

      Essentially, if consciousness is embraced, all the science books have to be re-written. Because suddenly there’s another force in the universe that can’t be explained with quarks and muons and the so-called “God particle.” Scientists hate to re-write their books and lectures. And they sure don’t want to be seen as ever being incorrect about anything. So they will defend their outmoded, flat-Earth delusions to their dying day.

      TED, it seems, is all too happy to further those delusions for as long as possible, holding back humanity from any real revolution in consciousness — the very kind of revolution that’s essential for helping humankind achieve lasting progress.”

      • “The entire system of corporate-driven science that dominates the world today depends on this “materialistic” delusion of the world.”

        Bam! That is it. And its dominance started with Kant (eighteenth century). Materialism is empiricism taken to its fuller logical conclusion. Just like Nietzsche, and other existentialists, are Kant taken to his (Kant’s) fuller logical conclusion. The intelligentsia informs culture, e.g. TED talks. Platonism informed culture predominately until Kant (not that going back to Platonism is any good either).

  8. maybe we can help to fertilise the non-organic gardens,,

    Coffins, tombstones, and orthodox funeral proceedings are the norm, but a company called Capsula Mundi is completely changing the way we look at burials.

    When we originally wrote about this project (about a year ago), Capsula Mundi, a unique burial method, was in the early stages of development. Capsula Mundi is essentially a cultural project founded by Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel in Italy, who approach death and design in very different ways.

    The designers wanted to emphasize “Nature’s cycle of transformation” and created an organic, biodegradable pod that actually transforms the body of the deceased into a tree. (Yes, you can now become a tree when you die!)
