Everything You Need To Know About GMO Foods

Genetically Modified Organisms, also known as GMOs, represent one of the most pervasive topics in modern nutrition discourse.

Formally described by the WHO –  Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from organisms whose genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally, e.g. through the introduction of a gene from a different organism.

While it may sound like something out of a sci-fi film, the genetic modification of crops is a massive part of current agricultural practice.

And I know it’s a topic that has you equal parts intrigued and confused.

Fortunately, my wonderful intern Lara wrote a masterful 3-part series on the GMOs that will teach you everything you need to know, and probably a bit more.
