Rice is the raw material supply for more than 80% of the world population, although production is declining in Bangladesh, India and parts of East and South Asia, due to toxic levels of arsenic in soil.
A team of researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, produced through genetic engineering rice plants that block the absorption of arsenic.
"The growth activity of certain genes, we can create rice plants that are highly resistant to arsenic and other heavy metals," said Professor Parkash.

University of Michigan shows that a super-fruit consumption reduces adipose tissue
One of these super fruits are cherries, which reduces risk factors for heart disease. In addition to lower cholesterol and reduce inflammation, a diet rich in cherries reduced body weight and fat.
Tomato consumption prolongs life
Researchers at the John Innes Center in Norwich, United Kingdom, in collaboration with other European centers participating to the FLORA project, have obtained genetically modified tomatoes rich in anthocyanins, a category of antioxidants belonging to the class of flavonoids. These tomatoes showed a significant protective effect by extending the life of mice.
