Genetically Modified Oranges With A Side Of Frog Genes
In this PDF presentation obtained by Food Nation Radio Network, read about genetically modified oranges. The information speaks for itself. These GM oranges are currently in field trials in the State of Florida to combat a citrus blight called Greening, instead of testing two varieties of citrus that are already resistant to the blight.
There are local resources for organically grown oranges. Some farmer’s markets in the area may carry organic oranges, also. Certified organic produce is not permitted to be genetically modified.
About the show: Food And Travel Nation with Elizabeth Dougherty is the fusion of food and travel. This fresh, compelling nationally-syndicated weekend program includes information for homesteading, traveling, gardening, taste tests, and in a twist, listeners hear what restaurant servers say about customers.
I taught cooking classes, and served as a personal chef for individuals and small parties. I consulted for restaurants and other food service organizations in menu development as well as cost saving measures. As a freelance writer, I have written hundreds of articles for many different publications. I created and developed the popular “Food and Travel Nation” page on Facebook.
In 2010, I created a light-hearted, entertaining, informative radio program, “Food Nation Radio”. It’s a mix of everything FOOD, including guest interviews, recipes and food/restaurant related features.
With previous memberships in the International Association of Culinary Professionals, the James Beard Foundation and National Restaurant Association, I have tried to keep abreast of the current and ever-changing trends in the culinary world.
