It's irrelevant whether you like turkey or not, because someone is going to be handing you a plate of it very soon. And after the meal there's a good chance that you'll get sleepy. But will the cause of your drowsiness be the turkey, the booze or your brother-in-law's tedious commentary about his golf game? We explain.
Sorry grocery shoppers, but all of today's domestic turkeys -- even the ones labeled "organic" -- are actually GMOs. Years of artificial selection, by optimizing genetic traits, have made the genome of the turkey we eat significantly different than the genome of wild ones. So unless you shot yours in the woods, the turkey heading to your table isn't natural.
