Unless it's shown to be unhealthy I fully support tinkering and playing god


However for the life of me I cannot understand why they picked a strawberry over the raspberry!

For years I have struggled with my favorite flavor coming from the fictional fruit known as the blue raspberry


*edited: well looks like there is a blue raspberry. Rubus leucodermis. Learn something new everyday.

Personally, I would not eat that strawberry after the oil spills with the fish.

I really don't think that should be a concern.

It's not like they took a strawberry and rubbed it on the fish until it turned blue.

I wish it were that easy though. I would give myself all sorts of super powers. Grab said spider and rub it on me until I can shoot webs.

I thought the biggest problem with strawberries is that they are prone to fungal rot, why not make a fungaus tolerant strawberry instead? Anyway I bet they will still pick the strawberries way too early so they can send them half way across the continent to be bought by a consumer who doesnt realize that strawberries should not be crunchy and taste like cucumber.

They are artic fish from around the Alaska area. They are highly resistant to cold temps. Thus why they used their "anti-freeze" DNA to the strawberry.

Still may have been affected in some way by the oil spill. I don't eat ocean fish for that reason either.

looking cool is probably the superficial selling point they will use, slowly but surely the entire world, Nature, People, animals are being controlled, In the new world order we will only have GMO foods this will stop us growing and evolving, keeping the human being in a prefered state ( as defined by the UN) buddy if you want to know what is really going on in this world visit this site

So if a strawberry was altered with a blueberry to make it blue and not the fish, would you eat it then?

Mmmmm, tasty fish berries (actually, strawberries aren't really berries )
Anti freeze doesn't exactly sound good either....even if it is a "natural" kind

Yep, they are putting anti-freeze and formaldehyde in our vaccines so why not food I suppose. Gross.

I thought I read somewhere that they have created a cat that glows in the dark. What next, cows and poultry that glow. Oh well, that will make our poop glow...maybe they can use sewage plants for our lighting at nite and we can save on our electric bills. I don't like the various, weird directions that all this "tinkering" is going. Too weird.

I do like blue tho., but miced-o-chritty, why not leave the strawberries red, the blueberries blue and cauliflower white. Nice and patriotic an all and still colors as nature intended.

The blue is cool though. Gotta tell ya, I once bought/ate watermelon flavored sherbert. It was red but said artificial colors added. No shiite.
It was gross and chemically and caused brite chatreuse green bm's...scared the you know what outta me.

I want to know how much that would alter the tatse of it

Looks cool, trouble is that generally once upon a time anything blue was associated with poison. People wouldn't even go near blue smarties until the naughties.

Not particularly into anything being fishy other than actual fish at the moment though. Even most supermarket eggs are tasting fishy all of a sudden.

What's next? Pink bananas? Couldn't we just use food coloring to get this effect? It does look cool though, but you wouldn't ever catch me eating one.
