While it may seem strange, bars will sometimes use liquid nitrogen to spruce up the presentation of their drinks. Although the substance causes severe burns when touched directly, in its room-temperature gaseous form it creates a fog-like effect and should be harmless.
Although there has never been any data definitively linking genetically modified food to health problems, many scientists and nutritionists worry that messing with the genetic makeup of food could have adverse effects on the environment and the people who eat it.
