Learning to Love G.M.O.s 🍎


Fears have turned people against genetically modified food. But benefits are great, Kahn wrote, for the NY Times.

The difficulty is to predict the results of each genetical modification. Many years have to pass to be able to measure their consequences. Developing tests take time, depending on the kind of food. And of course, there have to be enough monetary outcome since the required investment is much.

Once grown, what if the GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) behave different than expected? 💡 This is similar as the creation: God made us and gave us freedom. We can take our own choices, whether good or bad, only God can tell. What if we make mistakes, maybe unfixable mistakes??? What if, being confused, we take decisions that later wish to change? Because of God’s love, he sent us his Son, actually Himself in Trinity’s Second Person. He is the one able to fix unrepairable mistakes. There is no impossible for Him, even when it seems the contrary, so keep the faith. I can talk and talk about this and my experiences in hospitals and surgeries, but let us return to GMOs.

There is an opposition, which is completely natural, to this movement. Also it is natural to have fears, because they prevent us from dangers. An intricate knot will result if we keep hiding and hiding fears under the armor, pretending they are not there, with the temporal benefit of not seeing them for a while.

There should be a level of maturity when dealing with this issue and its consequences. Each alteration being done should have a multilateral reason. For instance someone could produce an overwhelming colored fruit, one that sells better. But what if now requires a different weather, or if it is devoured by insects attracted to the new look. As I said above, consequences can be unpredictable. Like when they forced salt to be perfectly white, which seemed pure at that time; and now salt is listed under the 7 white food demons. White is an utopic color, did you know it is the mandatory color to play tennis at Wimbledon?

I cry on Tuesdays and Fridays 😭

Michelle Pasos, 46, describes herself as someone who has “always been extremely healthy.” That is until the pandemic (😷😷 this sounds familiar). She ended up in the emergency room because she had a bad reaction to a drug prescribed to bring down her elevated blood pressure. And being there decided she was better than doing housekeeping. So when the hospital gave her the option of going home and monitoring herself, or staying an extra night, she chose to stay. It was the first time she had felt calm in a year.

Raising kids can be exhausting. They run from one place to the other, when toddlers, followed by an adult, for safeness. Later on, when kids, they have to be kept entertained with fun activities to do, or at least an educational TV show to watch. BTW, I made this apparel for children, out of my painting “3 moons”, acrylic on canvas:


Kids bring great joy to families. They contribute with new things and happy moments. Husbands feel grateful to be part of a lucky group, the family. Actually this is the center of the church’s pastoral. Pastoral is built on them starting with the sacred family, the simplest group of 3 members (Jesus, Mary and Joseph). Not only in the Church, families are important in many cultures too, like in Latino’s. The role of the grand parent, for example, is important for most children in these cultures.

Families had resisted these times’ shakes. The pandemic may be tough, but good moments can still be found. It is actually a bless that Michelle used to cry on Tuesdays and Fridays (as explained) and not everyday like in Yemen. I wish Covid vaccines were also provided to kids in all countries, (they are not jet legal in my place). We will eventually find a cure, or solve it somehow 😙
