Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are a hot topic in the United States and around the world. Many nations in Europe refuse GMO products from the United States, and the trend is continuing throughout Africa as well. Many people are against GMOs, and many don’t understand what they are. Basically, a GMO is an organism that’s been modified in the lab to introduce the DNA from another organism. This is usually done to create a pesticide-resistant plant, or one that can fight off a common parasite. While GMO products have been around for a long time, many people aren’t aware of what exactly they might be consuming that has GMOs in them, hence the ongoing efforts to introduce mandatory labeling in the United States.
