The Question For January:
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
More and more of our food contains genetically engineered components and is synthesized. Some worry this tinkering is harmful, that it could not only kill, but create health problems such as allergies, migraines, and digestive disturbances. Others like the idea. It could enable strawberries to be available year round; tomatoes to have four times the amount of beta-carotene, wheat to have more fiber, and crops would thrive in extreme environments. Plant biologists hope to even eventually boost nutrition levels in poor nations.
