Genetically Modified Organisms
What are GMOs
GMOs are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Are They Safe?
Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. Although in Canada they are not banned. They have to be approved before going on market.
Why They Use Them
GMOs make food or animals look "bigger".
-Ever get those huge grapes? GMO
-What about huge strawberries? GMO
The Real Question
So the real question is:
GMOs good or bad?
