By early next year, the first foods from plants or animals that had their DNA "edited" are expected to begin selling. It's a different technology than today's controversial "genetically modified" foods, more like faster breeding that promises to boost nutrition, spur crop growth, and make farm animals hardier and fruits and vegetables last longer.

ON A SUNSHINY AFTERNOON last spring, folks line up 30 deep outside The Red Barn, an iconic restaurant in Augusta, Maine, along US Route 201, which connects the state capital to the countryside. Inside the kitchen, a burger, hot dog, or haddock fillet hits the grill every six seconds.
