Carrots

Researchers at Texas A&M and Baylor College of Medicine have genetically engineered a carrot that could deliver up to 40% more calcium. These scientists hope to start genetically modifying foods to increase their nutritional value. The genetic engineering of food so far has focused mostly on keeping crops healthy, making them resistant to pests and disease, and increasing their size and productivity. This is all great for farmers but doesn't specifically help you when you eat the food.

Would you be more likely to eat genetically modified foods if they were actually healthier for you? Take the poll.
