DNA-Free Food?

There is this guy in Australia who has started to a company to
develop 'DNA-Free Food!' No, this is not a joke and he is really
serious and offers substantial 'scientific' explanation
Check out the DNA-free tomatoes!

that goes to make up the
fruit contains DNA
which provides the instructions to the cells of the fruit to make
seeds, tomato flesh and
the flavorings we know as tomato. We have produced tomato plants
that have the floral
meristem modified such that the meiotic divisions that normally give
rise to the fruit do
absence of any instructions from the DNA. This is still in the
experimental phase and we
have yet to fully test it but what we are trying to do is to set up a
phylotaxic phase
the Sheldrakian morphogenic fields of the tomatoes to expand from the
tips of the plants
into the area surrounding the fruit and thus supply the genetic
information to the fruit in
the absence of DNA

Information on Sheldrakian morphogenic fields

The following is excerpted from an interview given by a researcher
into DFF technolgoy
to a Newspaper.

Creating DNA free food is very difficult. Normally all cells of a
plant contain DNA. For
example, in a normal tomato, every cell that goes to make up the
fruit contains DNA
which provides the instructions to the cells of the fruit to make
seeds, tomato flesh and
the flavorings we know as tomato. We have produced tomato plants
that have the floral
meristem modified such that the meiotic divisions that normally give
rise to the fruit do
not transmit any chromosomes.

Once we have done this, the real problem is to get the DNA free
fruit to develop in the
absence of any instructions from the DNA. This is still in the
experimental phase and we
transition of the subquarkic atom field surrounding the young
tomato plants. This causes
the Sheldrakian morphogenic fields of the tomatoes to expand from
the tips of the plants
into the area surrounding the fruit and thus supply the genetic
information to the fruit in
the absence of DNA
