unfortunately,the fda has approved a seed that will grow apples that don't brown when cut...
the brown is just oxygen on the apple,nothing bad about it.
but the genetical engineering is not warranted,needed or healthier
sorry ,don't kill the messenger,lol

An apple a day
will no longer
keep the doctor away.
Such will bring the hospital,
with a long, unhappy stay.

So many solutions to the problem of over population1

Sounds very good. I've been eating one, or two, apples a day for years on end.

Thanks for this good news. They should do the right thing in all instances but hard to do with the corporations promoting these evil pesticides and their lobbyists.
