4 Natural foods went through many transformations


The supernatural foods like fruits and vegetables which we intake and love today are much diverse from what they were and used to be thousands of years ago.

Human beings have been hereditarily transforming natural products for ages, as a consequence of the modification of exteriors and flavors of a lot of ordinary fruits and vegetables.

Tanya Lewis states that “Genetically modified foods, or GMOs, inspire strong reactions nowadays, but humans have been tweaking the genetics of our favorite produce for millennia,”

Here are some foods that gaze significantly diverse now.

  1. Corn


The corn which is most of us favorite and we are used to watch it on every roadside there wasn’t for all the time similar to it.

The American News Paper states that “Despite its abundance and importance, the biological origin of maize has been a long-running mystery,”

It was connected to a Mexican grass named ‘teosinte’ by a few scientists, but George W Beadle was the one of them who verified that the two had related genetics and that the teosinte kernels exploded also, setting up the close connection amid the two plants.

  1. Watermelon


The favorite summer red, juicy fruit cools everyone in heat. But watermelon for summer months wasn’t always red! It is reported on National Geographic that it has been approximately for millennia, a few watermelon seeds were discovered at a 5000-year-old resolution in Libya.

Egyptian tombs that are old almost 4000 years also exposed paintings of watermelons that appeared pale and much seedy.
