Super Bananas

Typically, it has been standard scientific practice to evaluate the experimental impact of any given product upon some primate cousin of the human species. But with chimps, orangutans and the like increasingly harder to come by, and the scientific community under more pressure from animal rights groups to stop such testing, where is today's mad-scientist-on-the-go to turn? Why, to the black-as-pitch sub-apes of sub-Saharan Africa, of course! Quoting:

[...] the Highland or East African cooking banana was a staple food in East Africa, but had low levels of micro-nutrients, particularly pro-vitamin A and iron.

"The consequences of vitamin A deficiency are dire with 650,000-700,000 children world-wide dying ... each year and at least another 300,000 going blind," he said.

Researchers decided that enriching the staple food was the best way to help ease the problem.

While the modified banana looks the same on the outside, inside the flesh is more orange than a cream colour, but Dale said he did not expect this to be a problem.

He said once the genetically modified bananas were approved for commercial cultivation in Uganda, the same technology could potentially be expanded to crops in other countries -- including Rwanda, parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya and Tanzania.


Fantastic, another 650,000 - 700,000 brown people added to the global population per year simply by eating bio-engineered orange flesh bananas. We could probably add another million sub-apes per year if we start bio-engineering purple watermelons that dispense grape soda when tapped.

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) project, backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, hopes to see conclusive results by year end.

I'm sure the more conspiracy minded will claim this is all part of a global depopulation scheme hatched by the elites, but I have my doubts. All I see are wealthy leftists determined to accelerate the darkening of the planet.

  1. INteresting. In the third world countries, they are making them healthier. Here, the colored people subsist on a diet of high fructose corn syrup and lard, and are obese at a young age. Third world people in a first world country cannot resist the supernormal stimuli of fat/sugar/salt. African refugees quickly become diabetic in the USA.

  2. High fructose corn syrup, lard, and salt - that's what I just had for dinner. Yum!

    No orange flesh bananas for me, thank you very much. We don't want Oompa Loompas hiding in the produce stands with their wee-wees hanging out, hoping for inattentive consumers to stop by and check the bananas for ripeness.
