My mom sent me a great video this afternoon. Short, sweet, and to the point about what, exactly, GMOs are, and how they are created.
The take-home points are:
- Genetically-modified foods make up about 72% of all foods sold in supermarkets and restaurants today.
- Genetically-modified organisms are created by processes involving viruses, bacteria (like E.Coli) and tumors that allow otherwise impenetrable cells to be invaded by the modified genes.
- Exposure to genetically modified organisms has contributed to various health problems.
