Many vegetables today lack nutrition from over-hybridization. Recent tests are showing that many of the vegetables, grains and other produce you buy, INCLUDING ORGANIC PRODUCE, are nutrient-deficient. If you want to truly be in charge of your nutritional intake, you must home garden. If you want the higher nutrition of original varieties you must use non-hybrids.
Economic security and independence
Growing your own food, now, is becoming an economic necessity for many. Even those in cities are growing food on their balconies and rooftops and in suburban backyards. 2011 will likely become known as the year America returns to home gardening (see Victory Gardens of WWII) as a way of defending against the hostile adversary of an economic downturn!
Security of Food Supply
Securing the nation’s food supply against the “invasion” of GM (genetically modified) and over-hybridization of foods is coming down to the backyard garden. Yours and ours. It is our patriotic duty to defend the genetic integrity of our food supply by growing, saving seeds and sharing original varieties.
World Food Supply
Put simply, the future of the world's food supply rests in non-hybrid seeds. The push toward hybridization and GM foods is becoming irreversible. Hybrid food sources are patented and "owned" by the patent-holders. It is, in fact, a form of patent-infringement to attempt to collect and plant seeds from many hybrid varieties.
With the advancement of genetically modified plant varieties, the danger of cross-pollination with organic and non-hybrid varieties is not only possible, it is happening as you read this. If it is possible for GM vegetables, grains and legumes to cross-pollinate with organic and non-hybrid varieties, then it’s possible for the food system to be altered uncontrollably and irreversibly.
