What are GMO's?
GMO is the acronym for Genetically Modified Organism. The official definition given on Wikipedia is: An organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes.
Currently about 80% of all packaged foods in the U.S. contain GMO's. Although many other countries have significant restrictions or complete bans on the production of GMO's, the U.S. continues to allow these frankenfoods to overtake our food supply.
