Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes from one species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, or  humans, into the DNA of a food crop or animal in order to introduce a new trait. Foods may be genetically modified in order to be made larger, seedless, or other trait to encourage buyers. But several animal studies indicate serious risks associated with genetically modified food such as infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs. How do you know which foods are GMOs? Joan Levin with Illinois Right to Know GMO explains how to find out if you're eating genetically modified foods and how to avoid them. To learn more about genetically engineered foods, contact Institute For Responsible Technology, www.ResponsibleTechnology.org; Non-GMO Project, www.NonGMOProject.org, Organic Consumers Association, www.OrganicConsumers.org; and Just Lable It, www.justlabelit.org.
