Another good reason to push for GMO labeling: Fake DNA Frankenfood will be next on our plates
by Larry Geller
And what could possibly go wrong with creating glowing trees to replace streetlights?
“Synbio” is supposed to sound better than “Frankenfood,” unless, of course, you know that’s what it means.
Check out the article. It appears that “synbio” vanilla is here, and could be appearing in food soon.
As the article points out, the products targeted are currently grown the old-fashioned way by farmers, mostly in the global South. If factories in the North are churning out the stuff they used to grow, what will they do for a living?
Since consumers in this country haven’t yet won the war to have GMO foods labeled, there likely won’t be labeling required for Frankenfoods, either.
Unless we get our act together real soon.
