The Facts on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Just what is a genetically modified organism (GMO)? GMOs are organisms that have had their DNA altered or modified through genetic engineering.

There are approximately 1.2 billion acres of genetically modified crops grown around the world, with more than 80 types of GMO crops. At least 90% of soy, cotton, canola, corn and sugar beets sold in the United States have been genetically engineered.

Due to health concerns, more than 60 countries have significant restrictions or bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
