Etymology: Frankenstein + food
Usage in a sentence: ‘Do the corporations behind frankenfoods have no ethics at all?’
Frankenfoods basically refer to foods which are scary, because they are genetically modified. You may not know it, but some of the healthy foods that you eat are Frankenfoods too! The consumption of these scary foods is probably the cause behind allergies, organ defects, and *gulps* cancer.
It’s more of an American phenomenon. To be specific, USA. And the people out there are pretty aware about the negative effects of consuming these genetically engineered foods. The Non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to clearly labeling and independently verifying foods that don’t contain GMO ingredients. Makes it easier for the consumer to make the right decision while purchasing, doesn’t it?
So, what’s scarier according to you? Frankenstein or Frankenfoods? Comment below 🙂
