    Exclamation Am I eating Frankenfoods - Help!

    Shop Now
    Dear Mark:

    I sometimes eat grapes, but most of the time they are seedless.
    I cannot imagine seedless grapes as natural (no survival value)
    Is it ok to eat them, or will I get a leg growing out of my eye, like in the flies experiments of mutations?
    Thanks in advance - WildGrok

    Mark told me to tell you that Vibram is coming out with a new line of Five Fingers shoes for eye-legs. So you're covered.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    It is a little scary what plant breeders can do even without using genetic engineering (artificially adding genes to the plant's DNA). I thought this article Design Decoded very interesting. Where do you draw the line of what is a Frankenfood?

    Selective breeding isn't the same as GMO. The grapes are fine.
