If it is genetically modified then it is not an organic food. Organic food is naturally grown.

No, growing food organically has no connection to biotechnology. Biotechnology produces food that is genetically modified. Organic foods are not genetically modified.

organic foods are naturally grown and genetically modified are grown using special chemicals and such

They are genetically modified.

hard to say because it is not always stated on the packaging if it has been genetically modified.Answer:60 to 70% of food in grocery stores are genetically modified. You don't know for sure, but most of what you eat has been genetically modified (unless you eat only organic foods, or something).

The difference between organic and genetically modified food is like the difference between night and day. GMO food is of unknown effect when consumed by the body, and it is presumed to be dangerous. Organic food is as natural as food gets, with no pesticides or any genetically modified organisms. Organic food tends to taste a lot better than GM food.

yes. but not true always this again depend upon how is this food modified genetealy

Sadly, almost all the food out there is genetically modified(gm). You can find more natural foods by purchasing organic or all natural products, but they are not guaranteed to be gm free.

There is a lot of talk about how genetically modified food is needed, but no real evidence that it is needed.

Animals have been genetically engineered to produce more food. Food that is genetically modified is referred to as a GMO or Genetically Modified Organism.

No, they are [still] quite Organic.

The harmful effects of the genetically modified food to health is that they contain cancerous cells.

Grape tomatoes are not known to have been genetically modified. Grape tomatoes may or may not be organic, depending on how they are grown. If they are grown using organic methods, they are organic. Natural when referring to food has not been defined. In the sense that grapes are grown in the soil, they are natural, but this does mean that they are organic or actually, anything else. Natural is a term that is used to sell products.

Apples have been genetically modified to prevent growing when they are cut.

organic Cotton is grown without using pesticides from plants which are not genetically modified

death. Nothing, food that hasn't been genetically modified is natural food. The kind of food people have been eating for thousands of years. Something is more likely to happen to you if you eat genetically modified food.

Genetically modified food is created in a lab by removing a gene from one organism and forcing it into an organism of a different species.

The most common genetically modified foods are corn, soybeans, canola, and cotton.

Any food that comes from a plant, animal, or other living thing can be genetically modified.

No movement to try to prevent the development of genetically modified food technology is known. There are; however, people who choose not to eat food that is known to be genetically modified, due to questions about the health and environmental effects of genetically modifying plants used for food.

Organically grown foods are not (trans)genetically modified, meaning they are not what is considered GMOs.

By use of genetic engineering techniques, an organism may be able to be genetically modified. Various organisms ranging from bacteria to food products have been genetically modified in the society.

People are concerned about this because genetically modified food is not natural food. It was genetically modified by a human or a machine. In either case, man made machine, and man isn't perfect. So, because of that, people are so concerned.

By GM, you probably mean genetically modified. That means the chicken's DNA has been modified to make it "better". A typical improvement is faster than average growth rate. The normal chicken has not been genetically modified. Organic chickens are not only not genetically modified themselves, but are fed food that has not been genetically modified either. These are considered the healthiest, but are also the most expensive. The GM has nothing to do with General Motors.

GMF = Genetically Modified Food

Organic food, such as fruits, are grown without pesticides, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, chemical fertilizers, and they cannot be GM(Genetically modified). Organic meat is raised without antibiotics, growth hormones, and must be fed an organic diet.
