of most important GEGE is short for Genetically Engineered, remember
crops is soybeans. "I don't eat those. Yuk!"
you probably think. But you'd be surprised because
you find them - or stuff made from them - in
most foods from bread to hamburgers. Maize
or corn is the other most important crop. And there are many
more, mostly not important yet. But what's different about these GE
crops if they don't taste different or look different? For the moment, there
are two main differences: many of these GMOsGMOa GMO is a Genetically Modified Organism
are made to be resistant to the weedkilling chemicals. That means farmers
can spray their GE crops with weedkillers (herbicides) which will kill every
single plant except the crop. The other GMO crops have been engineered to
make a poison which kills insect pests. These sound like a good idea --
but are they?
