The prospect of genetically modified purple tomatoes reaching the shelves has come a step closer.

From BBC

This was developed in Britain through Genetic Modification. The funny color is the result of a pigment known as anthocyanin.

The purple pigment is the result of the transfer of a gene from a snapdragon plant.

Canada’s New Energy Farms is the leading producer of these crops.

My view

While it is quite obvious to spot, the long term effect of these hybrids on humans has not been studied.

Think twice before you put something in your mouth.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
