GMOs, also known as genetically modified organisms, are living organisms that are genetically manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering in order to achieve a desired effect such as increasing crop production. GMOs are a laboratory result of extracting existing DNA from an organism and forcing it into another organism. Genes may come from a wide variety of sources including bacteria, viruses, insects, animals and even humans, depending on what the GMOs are used for. GMOs are used in our everyday lives, from genetically modifying fruits and increasing efficiency of crop production, to creating pesticide defense. Everyday foods such as vegetables and fruits are genetically modified to increase production rates, which show the convenience GMOs bring. Not only crop rate will increase drastically, but in the future, deadly as well as irreversible diseases will be treated as gene editing will allow us to remove deadly and unwanted cells from the body.

We need your help to increase awareness of how GMOs are beneficial to our society. With your response, you are contributing to the development as well as the growth of GMOs within your community. Help us today, and make future a better and safer place!
