- Label GMO's
by Down to Earth
October is Non-GMO Month. So, you might ask, what are GMOs?
Genetically Modified Organisms, called GMOs, are plants or animals with cells that scientists have altered genetically. They do this by inserting a gene from one organism into another similar organism—or between non-related species. The idea is to develop new plants or animals with specific desired traits and then grow them as food.
