A genetically modified organism, or GMO, is an organism that has had its genetic code altered. The jury is out, scientifically speaking, about whether GMOs are safe in our food supply, and this is why GMO foods are banned in some parts of the world. Until they are proven to be safe, this eater is avoiding GMO “Frankenfoods.”
