Biotech food - Thought of the day

Thought of the day.

I picked this article up at The New York Times this morning and wanted to share it with you. I was disturbed...would I be eating a big Atlantic salmon in the future, knowing that it has been genetically engineered to grow at twice the rate of normal salmon ? If you are interested in the "serious" side of food, go have a read. I know genetically modified food is here to stay - rice, corns, and soy bean are very common genetically modified food. But do we need more of them ?

"Enviropigs" with cleaner manure and healthier meat, do we really need them?
