Genetic Engineering

"Genetic engineering refers to a set of technologies that are being used to change the genetic makeup of cells and move genes across species boundaries to produce novel organisms. The techniques involve highly sophisticated manipulations of genetic material and other biologically important chemicals."

Widespread GMO Contamination of Papayas in Hawaii

Genetically Engineered Trees

Hilo, Hawaii -- Independent laboratory testing results released today
reveal widespread contamination from the world's first commercially

non-genetically engineered seeds being sold commercially by the
University of Hawaii.


Farmers, health professionals, concerned citizens, and University of
Hawaii scientists joined GMO-Free Hawaii in announcing the shocking
