A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Organisms that have been genetically modified include micro-organisms such as bacteria and yeast, insects, plants, fish, and mammals. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods, and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food.
It's created a movement to label GMO food products.
The claims are that no one knows what these modifications can do when you eat products containing them. And cross contamination of other non-GMO crops.
