Botox Apples

You may have heard about the latest GM apples?
They don't brown. They get old, but don't show it.
Which is why this article, very cleverly, calls them botox apples.

Okanagan Specialty Fruits, a Canadian biotechnology company, has petitioned the USDA for approval of its genetically modified "non-browning apple." The company is marketing the fruit as the "Arctic" while critics have taken to referring to them as "Botox apples" because they give a false impression of being young and healthy.

Then there is the Botox factor.

"We here at the Center for Food Safety are actually concerned that by not turning brown it may not alert cooks and consumers to the fact that these apples are spoiled"

Even there bruises won't show.

Yum...

  1. Yuck.

    Combine this with food irradiation and nothing will ever 'look' spoiled. We bought some nectarines the other day, product of Chile I think. They looked beautiful from the outside. The rot was all on the inside around the pit. I guess the fungus and bacterias, fruit flies and such know better than we do.

    None of these GM abominations should be approved for any reason.

    Buffy - no Botox for me thanks, I like my laugh lines! ;)

    Nothing will ever look spoiled even though it will completely rotten and lacking in any nutritional value whatsoever.

    The future of food, to make you sicker and sicker, which will make the pharmaceutical industry even wealthier
