If approved, genetically modified apples – that do not brown when cut or bruised – will be on supermarket shelves in the near future. Okanogan Specialty fruits, (OSF) a small British Columbia company has developed this sickening apple. But, consider this a warning to all health conscious people – do NOT buy these apples.
Naturally speaking, when an apple is cut and the inside is exposed to oxygen – the apple will begin to brown. This process is called “oxidation” and it’s completely normal. But, the new (genetically modified) apple named the “Arctic Apple” will decay without any of the natural warning signs – leaving consumers uncertain about the health of their produce. Does this sound criminal to you?
The apple will not brown for 15 to 18 days so you eyes will say fresh, but your stomach and intestines will say “STOP!”
