To summarize it:

They use gibberellic acid on a strawberry plant. (GA is a plant hormone that incres growth by crazy insane rates. Think 10 foot tall cabbage...) The nutritional value went up in antioxidants, and had higher yield.

Question: How many of you think it's worth it to use a "healthy/natural" growth hormone on your strawberries if they are more nutritious and you get more of them?

Considering the concentration is less tha .1-.01 ug per mL or something like that... and it doesn't do anything in humans (from what I am aware of) there should be no problem with eating plants that it's been used on.

If you've eaten grapes you've probably eaten something it's been used on.
