There is an article in the news from the Institute of Food Research (UK)
about a new “super broccoli” that has been developed to contain more of the nutrients that are supposed to fight cancer. The new product contains 3.4 times as much sulforaphane as broccoli normally does. Is this a triumph for genetic engineering? No. According to the article the broccoli was developed using traditional plant breeding methods. Hooray for Nature, and for the scientists who honored her.
