Italian Scientists are Developing Genetically Modified Hypoallergenic Apples

A team of allergists, molecular biologists and plant physiologists in Italy are collaborating to develop a hypo-allergenic apple that could represent the next frontier in genetically-modified foods. Apples aren’t typically known as a potent allergen — at worst, they may cause your tongue and lips to become itchy and blister. But the team of scientists is using the apple as a test case, and they’re trying to decode the genetic markers that cause some people to experience an allergic reaction to apples. The technique is likely to be controversial because it involves genetic modification , and there’s concern that modifying the genetic makeup of an apple could produce other unexpected allergens.
