Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are plants and other living organisms derived from modern molecular biotechnology techniques that alter the genetics of the organism. A large portion of the food supply in America is now produced with this technology.

But there are known health risks associated with GMOs in our food supply based on independent research.
