The strangest genetically modified foods hitting the shelves
From the frivolous to the fantastic
Genetically modified foods are grown from living organisms that have been artificially engineered in a lab, resulting in a variety that doesn't occur in nature. Some of the new traits created in these products reflect the basic needs of the food supply chain, such as vegetables that produce their own insect-repellent or fruits that take much longer to spoil. These modifications are already incredible, but there are scientists out there with much grander plans! Delivering a life-saving vaccine with a bite of a banana or treating cancer with tomatoes, for example.
