When it comes to people growing their own food, the Absolute Rights newsletter reports, learning how to collect and how to store seeds is the most basic skill that is required. Understanding the basics for [saving seeds, the newsletter adds, allows people to have a never ending food supply. In the past this was much easier, the newsletter says than it is today, because the fact that the seeds have been manipulated by man. The Absolute Rights newsletter explains that in the past people could save the seeds from a plant, to replant them again for the next season, however that is not the case with most seeds today, because most seeds are hybrids or genetically modified.
Seeds have been scientifically manipulated, the Absolute Rights newsletter explains, so people could not save the seeds, and would become dependent upon the seed companies. The newsletter states that now people have to buy seeds over and over again to plant gardens, because most seeds are hybrids. This is where different varieties of plants are cross pollinated, explains today’s newsletter article, supposedly to bring out the best qualities, and produce superior produce. These advantages help the food industry, Absolute Rights reports in the newsletter, because they can grow produce that will truck farther, and store longer on the shelves.
For these superior trucking and storing qualities, Absolute Rights explains today in the newsletter, the food industry has sacrificed taste, because produce does not taste as it did decades ago. The Absolute Rights newsletter states that this is partially due to the fact, that non organic growing methods are used, and the soils in America are depleted of mineral content. The Absolute Rights newsletter today explains that organic produce is far superior in taste, and health benefits, even though it will not truck as far and sit on the shelf as long.
