Banana - before and after
Fruits and vegetables, before and after human
We did a pretty good fucking job, Jesus Christ
Remember this the next time you want to complain about GMO's, we may not
have done it in a lab but they still are that.
Bananas looked like lemons wif
Isn'tthis more of a combination of selective breeding and GMOs? Not just
Yes. But people talk about how GMO's are ‘unnatural’, yet for centuries
humanity has been exploiting mutations in animals and plants to produce food
GMO's are simply the process of inducing these mutations reliably.
People hear “Lettuce being modified with scorpion DNA’ and think that we're
now eating scorpions. But, in reality, they're taking a tiny bit of scorpion DNA
and splicing it into the plant. Why? So the plant will produce poison that is not
harmful to humans but will deter insects, reducing the use of pesticide, which
CAN be harmful to humans and the environment.
GMOs are producing rice that can survive flooding, which makes rice more
reliable yields and will prevent food shortages in poor nations that rely on said
crops for staple food.
GMOs are also creating spider-goat hybrids. Why? So we can splice web
production into the goat's udders. We'll be able to spin huge quantities of
spider silk, enough to reliably create spider silk cables and ropes, which have
more tensile strength than steel.
for one am glad I live in a time where watermelons aren't giant tomato
The issue with GMOs is that corporations like Monsanto are patenting GMOs
and arresting indigenous farmers for cross pollinating with they seeds. But
there is nothing dangerous about the science
The problem isn't the science, i's what capitalism does with that science
