Can you believe it? The corn has become much sweeter, the potatoes are now starchier, and the turkey is considerably bigger than the one on our ancestors table. Would it truly be an authentic Thanksgiving feast without all of these these scientifically altered foods?

Almost everything on our plates this holiday will have undergone genetic alterations of industrial farming.

The Pilgrims and American Indians ate foods called corn and turkey, but the actual organisms they consumed didn’t look or taste much like our modern meals do.
