A Conversation for Frankenstein (Genetically Modified) Foods

Genetically Altered Organisms [GAO's]

The word modification implies that something has been improved (despite the fact that modern things are often worse than what went before them, e.g. high rise blocks of flats).

GM has stuck, but organisms should really be labelled GA for 'genetically altered'. As for Frankenstein foods, I think Terminal Man foods foods would be a better description. Terminal Man is a Michael Crichton novel, where a mentally disturbed man is given neural implants to make him sane, but they actually drive him totally round the twist and he consequently goes on a murder and destruction rampage.
