Genetically engineered lettuce?
A friend came home from school today and asked if I knew anything about genetically engineered lettuce in which peanut genes are used to benefit lettuce production. His teacher had said persons allergic to peanuts might be affected by such plants. I Googled with no particular joy. Does anyone know of anyone whose had an allergic reaction to a genetically changed previously benign food? Or if not why not?
