Dr. Oz Show Presentation:
Dr. Oz presentation: “Let me show you in more detail how genetically modified food is made. The basic idea is to take a feature from one organism and you put it into another organism. You might take bacteria genes and mix them into a plant like in corn. In plain English that means right now we can take corn with built in pesticide that kills off any bugs and makes it resistant to all those toxic chemical sprays we put on to kill weeds and other things. Now in the future, scientist might be able to move genes from a fish that lives in cold water and put it into a tomato so maybe that tomato can easily survive in the weather, especially if that weather is cold. That’s the aspiration, the hope.”
