Banana - before and after Carrot-before and after Watermelon- before and after sprachtraeume angryfishtrap wordnerdworld march27thoughts cubern thespectacularspider-girl jiggly-jello-squid art-angelsz nunyabizni trashcanbees asapscience Fruits and vegetables before and after human intervention Source We did a pretty good fucking job Jesus Christ Remember this the next time you want to complain about GMO’s we may not have done it in a lab but they still are that Bananas looked like lemons wtf Isn’t this more of a combination of selective breeding and GMOs? Not just GMOs? Yes But people talk about how GMO’s are “unnatural” yet for centuries humanity has been exploiting mutations in animals and plants to produce food for themselves GMO’s are simply the process of inducing these mutations reliably People hear “Lettuce being modified with scorpion DNA” and think that we’re now eating scorpions But in reality they’re taking a tiny bit of scorpion DNA and splicing it into the plant Why? So the plant will produce poison that is not harmful to humans but will deter insects reducing the use of pesticide which CAN be harmful to humans and the environment GMOs are producing rice that can survive flooding which makes rice more reliable yields and will prevent food shortages in poor nations that rely on said crops for staple food GMOs are also creating spider-goat hybrids Why? So we can splice web production into the goat’s udders We’ll be able to spin huge quantities of spider silk enough to reliably create spider silk cables and ropes which have more tensile strength than steel I for one am glad I live in a time where watermelons aren’t giant tomato abominations The issue with GMOs is that corporations like Monsanto are patenting GMOs and arresting indigenous farmers for cross pollinating with they seeds But there is nothing dangerous about the science ^This The problem isn’t the science it’s what capitalism does with that science this should be in the largest letters we’ve got plastered everywhere until it gets through people’s heads The problem isn’t the science it’s what capitalism does with that science Did you just say spider goats? He said spider goats Did you all read him talking about spider goats or am I hallucinating Meme
