DailyDirt: Life Finds A Way…

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are more common than many people think. Diabetics nowadays who rely on insulin shots aren’t getting their medicine from pigs/cows or other mammals — and haven’t been for decades. Modern sources of insulin come from vats of genetically engineered bacteria. So what about GMOs and GMO-produced products in our food supply? Most Americans have definitely eaten some GMO food, but is there any end to GMO experimentation in the wild now?

After you’ve finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

I read a news item a while back that some government agency had approved the planting of GMO pine trees in the wild without even doing any kind of impact study on what they would do to the environment. If I remember correctly, the trees were designed to have harder wood, which it said would have effects on the animal and insect species who depend on pine trees for their survival.
