It’s The Onion For Goodness Sakes…

I received my weekly AgBioWorld newsletter this week which helps promote the issues of GMO’s and use of biogenetically modified foods throughout the world. Reading to the bottom of the scientifically sound newsletter was a post from an article in The Onion about a tomato genetically modified to be 31% more expensive and will wipe out four species of ladybugs. Somebody is going to believe this as factual. How many thousands of environmental whackso will read this and start a mission to banish this non-existing tomato from the earth?

Before the panic starts, before Sean Penn starts his week long fast, folks it’s The Onion! Back off, people, it’s a satire.
