Tuesday Science Times Rehash

Tuesday is has two redeeming qualities; it’s not Monday, and the NYTimes Science section comes out. A couple heartwarming stories from the last edition. Genetically modified produce is a flop, for both consumers and crop yields. And apparently, all that opposition to GM foods has really taken the mickey out of the biotech scientists. See, we do make a difference. Though now they’re making GM corn to feed to farm animals. Ew.

Thanks to the NYTimes for images. (For stories more than seven weeks old, you will need a NYTimes Select membership to view)
