Bunk.  Selecting for larger seed heads in wheat is NOT the same as taking
parts of the genome from a bacteria or a brazil nut and adding it to the
genome of a potato.

Robert is right on the money in his comments.  All the crops we enjoy
today and (for those who indulge) animal products are also highly modified
from their original stocks via genetic engineering.
