Omega-3: GM Crop of Omega-3 is Ready for Government Approval

While GM foods are very unpopular in Europe and the UK, British scientists have sought the green signal for a trial from the government. An Omega-3 GM crop is to undergo experimental procedures in an effort to provide healthy fats for a future generation. The project is to begin in the heat of May with the approval of the leadership of course. 

Meanwhile, the crop will consist of Camelina plants which it is hoped will yield the Omega-3 fatty acids. At present, there are no signs of any GM crops in the UK. Even in the EU, there are only two such products, a Frankenstein form of insect-repellant maize and a highly starchy potato

The experiment is sure to stir up a hornets nest in the land of the Anglo Saxons. Omega-3 fats from the Camelina GM crop are normally found in fish. As for the market application of the fake fat, it is best used to make margarine. The fisheries too could be provided with the response is due within a period of three months. 

GM foods have been controversial. Yet there is no evidence of any harmful effects they may have on human health. Nature too contains many harmful things yet it is not made an object of criticism by so-called experts.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
