Genetically Modified Organisms can be difficult to understand. These laboratory-modified plants and animals are a controversial part of the agricultural industry, and a person's diet. This book explores the pros and cons of these modified crops, such as corn, rice, and soybeans. While exploring what changes scientists make to these plants and how these changes impact their consumption, it also studies the potential risks of altering natural genetic material and how consuming GMOs impacts humans. As future development of GMOs such as corn and salmon progresses, governments and their citizens face difficult decisions about whether GMOs should enter the food supply, and about the safety of these incredible technological developments.
