Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes could be released in Florida Keys

The only reason this article really caught my eye is because the book I’m reading – Blackout by Mira Grant, the third in the Newsflesh Trilogy – has a plot involving genetically modified mosquitoes in Florida that are a new vector for the book’s zombie-virus. Future zombie apocalypse, right here in the news.

But seriously, people are having concerns the genetically modified DNA could get inside a human somehow. Well sure, it’s possible someone is going to end up swallowing a mosquito. And 80% of Americans support mandatory labeling of food containing DNA so I guess I can see a connection here.
