Fifteen years ago, Genetically Modified foods came into plan and since then, there is no relief for a common person. GMO stands for genetically modified organisms, and refers to any plant or animal that has a gene from another organism purposely added to improve or change it. The Genetically modified crops grow bigger and are pest repellants. "If an organism can resist its own pests, you don't have to add pesticides," explained biologist Angelika Antoni. "You don't have to grow these crops with a lot of chemicals." Foods containing GMOs are not labeled and sold under the label of "Organic." "A perfectly healthy organically grown crop anywhere near a GMO crop is going to be genetically influenced by it." There is also some concern about the environment with genetically engineered crops. There have actually been more chemical herbicides used since plants have been modified to be resistant.
