What is GMO exactly?

Well, GMO stands for “Genetically Modified Organism.” To create a genetically modified organism, the genes of a plant or animal are literally altered. In a laboratory, the genes of a completely unrelated organism are inserted into the genes of the plant or animal (i.e. like fish genes inserted into tomato genes… and yes this has been done).



Thank you, Danielle Zanzarov for yet another great artice!!

  1. Thanks for sharing Yvonne! I hope people come to learn more about GMOs. Once the word gets out and people start voting with thier wallets… hopefully GMOs fall by the wayside.
