RE: Bugs in the news: Corn snot helping end hunger and pollution
I think this is cool and simultaneously worrying - I'm allergic to almost all cereals. My allergy self is concerned soon there will be foods chockablock with corn proteins making me rash and not knowing why. ;) Maybe that's not how corn snot modified into other potential plants will work, but my allergies make me paranoid! XD
Like honestly, that's my biggest GMO question, and I can't find diddly squat about it when I've looked. If they're using, say, a shellfish gene, and I'm allergic to shellfish, will it have the proteins that set me off in the modified food? Is this a possible reason for the spike in food allergies in the world? I don't know. I want more studies!
