Dear all,

What do you get when you cross a jellyfish with a potato, this should be a prefix to a joke
not something that could be growing in the field across the street next year.  In Michigan's MDA'S rubber stamping of GMO (GENETICALLY Modified Organism) field testing requests in the State of Michigan needs much greater public scrutiny.  It is a disaster waiting to happen as a function of wind or insect transfer of GMO pollen.

Sincerely,

OH THAT WHACKY GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOOD

Anthony Trewavas and his colleagues at Cambridge University  have mixed the
genes of a jellyfish and potato,  creating a new potato that they say can
help conserve water. Apparently a farmer can hold a black light up to the
plant, and if it glows, it means it needs water.
