Genetic engineering

Toxic proteins engineered to perforate the cell walls of insects are in your food. That doesn’t sound so great to me. It doesn’t make me feel very safe eating generically modified food. Could these foods cause unexplained problems in our bodies? One of the theories behind the increase in prevalence of food allergies is that increasing use of genetically modified food could be causing it.

Hopefully these wonderful fresh figs, purchased at my local food co-op, weren’t genetically modified.
