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. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism' defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").
Yeah, what help says. Poison. So when we eat corn that has toxins in it to kill insects, guess what happens to us? And remember corn as in; corn flour, corn chips, tortillas, corn syrup, corn starch, my beloved grits, etc,....Bob's Red Mill sells non GMO products, but they can't guarantee it because the earth has wind. I remember on a vakay trip to South Carolina dad and mom exclaiming in anger that a local farmer they knew was planting Hybrid corn. They were furious. "Once he starts others will do it too. His pollen will blow into neighboring fields. It isn't real food anyway!" My dad only had a 9th grade education because he had to stop school to help his dad with farming. But he could see our ruined future in that one little yellow sign.
