DNA-Free Food

Finally. Finally.

Some brave scientist made DNA-Free Food.

Fifty percent of the food grown in the United States is contaminated with disease causing and environmentally damaging genetically modified organisms. DNA Free Food technology can put an end to this threat to human health and our pristine environment. The DFF society sees problems with consumer acceptance of genetically modified foods entering the market place. Consumers would be shocked to know that even organic foods contain DNA.

You mean there was DNA in that enchilada I had for lunch?!

Here's how it works:

Creating DNA fee food is very difficult. Normally all cells of a plant contain DNA. For example, in a normal tomato, every cell that goes to make up the fruit contains DNA which provides the instructions to the cells of the fruit to make seeds, tomato flesh and the flavorings we know as tomato. We have produced tomato plants that have the floral meristem modified such that the meiotic divisions that normally give rise to the fruit do not transmit any chromosomes.
Once we have done this, the real problem is to get the DNA free fruit to develop in the absence of any instructions from the DNA. This is still in the experimental phase and we have yet to fully test it but what we are trying to do is to set up a phylotaxic phase transition of the subquarkic atom field surrounding the young tomato plants. This causes the Sheldrakian morphogenic fields of the tomatoes to expand from the tips of the plants into the area surrounding the fruit and thus supply the genetic information to the fruit in the absence of DNA.

Yeah, getting cell division to occur without DNA is tricky business, but these guys did it, with the help of Sheldrakian morphogenic fields. Cool, huh?
