The Alarming Truths about Genetically Modified Foods - video

 



What is a GMO?

A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic, hence they are also known as transgenic organisms.  This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.





Avoiding GMOs can be easy.   Learning the 8 commercially available genetically modified foods is the first step!
