GMO is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. They change farming because it gave new crop varieties and reduced the use of pesticides. GMOs are good because they give variety and can kill insects and pests that would usually wreck the crops, however GMOs also have negative effects because they are bad for your body, bad for the community, and bad for the environment. This is why the health consequences of eating genetically modified organisms are largely unknown.
