Cotton May Be Food for the Future
National Geographic News is quoted as saying that Keerti Rathore of Texas A and M University has figured out how to genetically alter cotton so as to eliminate a poisonous chemical called gossypol on the cotton plant's seeds.
According to Mr. Rathore hungry farmers could grow this crop and sell the fiber for clothing and use the seeds to feed their families.
Either roasted or plain or mixed wiht other flours these seeds could feed one-half million people every year he said.
What do you think? Do you think America could look into this technology and possibly export some of these seeds once they ahve been made safe?
Let us know what you think!
