These Foods Aren’t Genetically Modified but They Are ‘Edited’
A new generation of crops known as gene-edited rather than genetically modified is coming to the market. Created through new tools that snip and tweak DNA at precise locations, they, at least for now, largely fall outside of current regulations.
Unlike older methods of engineering genes, these techniques, like #Crispr, so far have generally not been used to add genes from other organisms into the plants.
[...] Hundreds of acres of gene-edited crops have already been grown in several states, unencumbered by oversight or regulations. And a few people have eaten them already.
