That's not GM is it, sounds a bit off putting, if you ask me, but at the end of the day, I'm not an expert. Recent results having been too promising, looked like a really great product, but as stated, anything modified isn't really the best. Naturalistic methods is what needs to be explored, however, this could be all of that and then some. I need to do more research into it.
