    Why is it the article is about conjecture and cites no evidence they really are?

    Don't get me wrong, I believe they are working on this technology & in our current human evolution it is a dangerous road.

    For example, the new Arctic apple, which I will never knowingly eat, was made via RNA technology to tweek the genome.

    On the flipside, the marijuana growers of the world, without the use of technology have increased the THC content in weed, pushed its genetics incredibly to the point of various medicinal uses (& other).

    As an example:

    White Shark vs Purple Kush

    Both strains have different medical uses, and then there is the seed & fiber strains which have nearly no THC. ((You will get a bad headache & quit 1st))... all without technology of RNA & GM exploitation.




    May Hearst rot in his grave.
