Hello, everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is a special Friday because I am posting a NEW ‘Fascinating Friday’ post!! How long has it been? WAY too long. BUT, at least you are finally reading a new one, and I am very excited to share this one with you!

Most people have no idea what their everyday fruits and vegetables originally looked like before they were genetically modified. Perhaps you are wondering, what exactly is genetic modification?

Genetically Modifiedย (of an organism or crop) containing genetic material that has been artificially altered so as to produce a desired characteristic.

Sounds kind of creepy if you ask me. lol Anyway, we’re going to take a look at some before and after pictures of some of the popular foods you enjoy. Let’s do this!

And there are just a few examples of the way our food has been genetically modified! Pretty insane, eh? It’s hard to believe these well-known foods used to look that different!

Well, I really hoped that you enjoyed today’s ‘Fascinating Friday!’ It is quite a bit shorter than my other ones but still thought that you would find it to be interesting. Let me know what you thought of today’s post, and if you have anything fascinating you want to see featured in a future issue! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Whoaaa thatโ€™s crazy! I think itโ€™s wild that food scientists (whatever theyโ€™re actually called ๐Ÿ˜‚) are able to make hybrids and such of fruits and vegetables!
