Can Parthenocarpic (seedless) fruits and veggies be dangerous?

There are a number of ways to produce seedless fruits and vegetables, ranging from grafting to crossing specific seeded varieties to produce sterile offspring. Technically, the idea of a “seedless fruit” is a bit oxymoronic, as a fruit is, by definition, a fully matured ovary which contains seeds used for propagation. However, given that seedless fruits and vegetables taste and feel like their seeded counterparts, use of the term “seedless” is generally viewed as acceptable for the sake of convenience.

Even the patent for seedless fruits and veggies sounds inhumane (United States Patent 6,114,602: Method for the induction of genetic parthenocarpy in plants). With this patent they can produce under extreme temperatures which lessons your chances of gaining proper nutrients from what you consume.

Some say "Its hybrid not genetic alteration...they are safe. If you notice the "seedless" fruits..they still have seeds but are tiny and not able to germinate. Seedless crops must be planted with seeded crops to be pollinated..so they are safe." Anything genetically altered is weak. Look and hybrid cars or hybrid shoes or hybrid bikes. They seem better initially but they just don't seem the same over time. Especially those hybrid bikes. :)

If you read the bible, Genesis 1:29 advises us to eat only herbs bearing seed and fruits bearing seeds. Did you know bananas are the most hybridized food? Go to Bali, Indonesia and you will see. You can only eat one because they are so filling. Most seeded fruits force you to take your time while eating which is great for PROPER CHEWING TECHNIQUES.

Hybrid fruits and veggies are higher in sugar and low in minerals. You ever notice a weird reaction when you eat small amounts of seedless fruits vs. seeded? You loose out. Imagine your body without ovaries or a uterus. You can't bear fruit. You see how that works and sounds? The truth is right before us. So be wise and use your head when shopping because you're typically paying more for less which is the McDonald's formula. Be well...Stay Upful!
