“More than once I’ve thrown [“the Amish use GMOs, you know?”] into a conversation–in real life or on twitter–and I’m usually met with stunned responses or disbelief,” writes genomics scientist MaryM in her blog post for Biofortified, Inc. “And if it’s on twitter it usually gets some retweets, which reminds me that some people are hearing that the Amish use GMOs for the first time. I have known for a while. I remember reading about the very curious situation of low-nicotine tobacco that was a controversial anti-smoking strategy developed at the turn of the century.”
