“Why does Greenpeace like the grapefruit?” is an important question and one that we should all be asking. This is because it exposes the dogmatic hypocrisy of their anit-GMO stance that lies at the core of the organisation.
A GMO by definition is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. However, it might surprise you to hear that there are techniques that can alter the DNA of an organism which do not come under the umbrella term of a “genetic engineering technique”. Meaning you can use them to alter the DNA of an organism but it won’t technically be a GMO. So you would think Greenpeace would be against this technology and its products…..but they are not!
