Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a manner that does not occur naturally. The technology allows individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another, also between non-related species.
1. Describe two specific examples of a commercially used GMO.
2. What are the benefits of GM foods, in general?
3. What are the main issues of concern for human health?
