Genetically Modified Organisms
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are what we have in some of our foods. It does sound daunting when it's talked about, but it can be very mild modifications like making a tomato ripen faster, or growing more grapes per vine, or something large like soybeans that don't die when a certain pesticide is sprayed on them and it only kills the bugs when they come in contact with the repellent. Most people, when they see something that is labeled to be genetically modified, they tend to shy away from that product and go for another product that isn't labeled genetically modified but still can contain a GMO. GMO's have helped farmers produce more crops when it comes to saving them from bugs and "pests", but the runoff of the pesticides are flowing into the drinking water and water that is used to hydrate the plants and ourselves. It is getting contaminated and can cause animals to die as well as other plants. People don't want to put things in their bodies that they know is going to be bad for them, but only when they have visible evidence (such as a label) to show them.
