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, including Uncle Matt’s (an organic brand) and at stores such as Rollin’ Oats and Whole Foods Market. Some farmer’s markets in the area may carry organic oranges, also. Certified organic produce is not permitted to be genetically modified.
