Food supply – go local not global
There has been more food being supplied to Australia from China over the last 5 years, fresh vegetable imports rising from $13 million in 2008 to 18 million in 2010
Unsafe levels of chemical have been found such as whitening agents used on mushrooms which can cause health problems including liver damage and skin allergies. Not to mention the melamine contamination of powdered milk scandal 2 years ago, where this toxic ingredient was used to bolster the protein content of milk commonly used in infant formula and many other foods for human consumption. Food safety incidents are growing and will likely continue to grow consider the lack of food safety standards and corruption in China. There is now evidence that food is being routed through New Zealand and then into Australia to disguise its country of origin.
Genetically Modified food infection
GMO issues are also at the forefront again with a Kojonup farmer loosing his organic certification due to contamination from a local GM crop! This highlights the challenge of keeping GM material out of the environment and besides contaminating other non GMO crops may increase the risk of virus’s sharing DNA with antibiotic and herbicide resistance to other plant or animal species. Evidence of this has been found in the human gut where GMO food DNA can be cut and sliced and shared amongst other bacteria and viruses, with unknown consequences. Considering the process of producing genetically modified DNA requires the use of a mosaic virus to insert the desired gene sequences along with DNA for antibiotic resistance so that they can test the success of the gene spice if the cell survives exposure to an antibiotic, it is highly possible that antibiotic resistance can be shared amongst other bacteria and viruses that generally affect humans.
