When people refer to Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), they are referring to precision plant breeding using genetic engineering. It allows plant breeders to take a desirable trait (like resistance to drought, insects, weeds, and disease) from one plant or organism and transfer it to the plant they want to improve, as well as make a change to an existing trait in a plant they are developing.

 

As for cooking processes, any food products that may contain GMO ingredients (such as corn syrup that was derived from a GE corn plant) OR a GE whole food like the Hawaiian papaya variety engineered to resist the RingSpot Virus, would be cooked, eaten and enjoyed in the exact same way as it conventional or (if available) conventional or organic counterpart. In other words, these foods are nutritionally equivalent. In a more detailed response on the topic, Angela Culler, Lead of Compositional Biology Center at Monsanto states,

“…before a GM crop is commercialized, extensive scientific analyses are conducted, including a compositional analysis, that contribute to the overall safety assessment of these crops. These are very comprehensive studies that include multiple geographies that span up to 1000 miles to get a variety of environmental and soil conditions, with multiple plots within a location and analysis of up to 80 analytes. The overwhelming conclusion of these studies is that the composition of the GM crops is nutritionally equivalent to the non-modified variant, and that factors such as environment have a much bigger effect on composition.”

There are currently no breeding techniques used to create genetic variations of hair textures. If a person wishes to change their hair texture in any way, they are currently limited to the available hair care products sold for those purposes.   However, new gene editing techniques are continued to be developed for different beneficial purposes and what you are referring to is the possibility of editing genes in humans. Some of the areas to apply gene editing, particularly in humans, are... Read More

One of the great things about farming is our ability to grow many different crops, while at the same time having the choices to raise them in different fashions, with or without biotech in the crops, especially in crops like corn. This can also be challenging as we have to work with our neighbors to make sure what we are growing doesn't cause a negative effect on what they are growing. This can happen in many different instances.    We raise production seed corn,...

While there might be some institutions with the capability to make these transgenic watermelon and coconut plants for you, that does not mean that you would be able to actually plant them out. First, the institution would need to have a Biological Use Authorization to work with recombinant DNA to make the vectors to transfer the genes. Then they would need to be able to do the tissue culture required to transfer the genes and regenerate whole plants again, which can sometimes be difficult.... Read More
