GMOs in the News!

Published by at 7:55 pm under Uncategorized

Last week, my group presented a project on genetically modified foods… We focused mainly on the current events and history within the United States (for somewhat obvious reasons), but as I was reading the New York Times this afternoon, I noticed this interesting article about genetically modified corn in Europe! I think it’s pretty cool that they might let this new crop through after such a long time … Also, did I mention it’s about corn? Yes, C-O-R-N, the spirit animal of our Biology class 🙂

Take a look-see and tell me what you think!

    This is very interesting. I was unaware that Europe was so reluctant to introduce genetically modified crops. Hopefully corn farmers will be able to produce fuller crops in the Europe when this crop is approved.
