Wiki

Genetically Modified (GM) Foods are made from organisms that have been given specific traits through genetic engineering, unlike similar food organisms developed through the conventional genetic modification of selective breeding or mutation breeding. GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil, but animal product s have been proposed. Foods can be modified in such a way that pesticides become part of the genetic makeup of the product so less pesticides need to be used externally. Insects no longer consume the crops and the result yields pleasant looking produce that is only consumed by humans. There are no short or long-term studies on the effect of GM foods on the human body or the environment.
