Genetic Engineering Watch
good point, but if we could make crops that are resisant to draught, disease, frostect, many countries that have to import food or that starve after a bad season can grow food no matter wha
It is a solution waiting for a problem.
True but unfortunately GM plants are designed to be infertile - making self sufficiency impossible and forcing farmers to restock their seeds from the company every season. .
Correct. However, this problem has been solved by producing GM plants which contain two inserted genes on the same chromosome- gene 1 blocks germination and is linked to the disease resistance gene, whilst gene 2 stops gene one from working. Therefore, only seeds from the same species are genetically viable, as both gene 1 and 2 are required.
I wanna just say its not like there isnt enough food in the world, its just that its not distributed fairly enough. Damm yankees got it all
