Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are engineered from DNA of different species of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes. Although many of us opt to buy organic foods, the fact is that 70% of items in American food stores contains GMOs, which to be honest, is quite scary. Think about it this way – Before 1996, items in American food stores contained 0% GMOs. In less than 20 years, over half of all items in the food stores are genetically modified. GMOs are banned in 50 nations including all EU countries but somehow it’s a major player in the US. Why? Here’s a bit more information for all of you who are interested in what we eat and how GMOs are affecting us.
