The laws regarding the labelling of genetically modified foods depend on the country. Most foods that have been genetically modified need to have it stated on the label.

Issue one: may damage to ecology. Issue two: controversy over the use

Yesterday, Conneticut became the first US State to legalise the labelling of Genetically Modified foods, and this legislation is accompanied by an unusual requirement that four other states enforce similar legislation.

Corn, soy, canola, cotton, tomatoes, potatoes, wheat, squash, and other foods are genetically modified. More and more foods are being genetically modified yearly, There are non-genetically modified varieties of all of those foods, though some cross pollination of GMO and non-GMO varieties may occur during pollination, Most other foods are not genetically modified.

At least 9 foods are genetically modified. Foods that are known to have been genetically modified are tomatoes, potatoes, field corn, sweet corn, soy, canola, crookneck squash, papayas, and rice. There may be others and more and more foods are being genetically modified as time passes.

Any food can be genetically modified through genetic engineering. Three foods that have been genetically engineered are corn, soy, and canola.

Genetically modified foods will go bad. The only thing that is different is the size and nutritional value of it.

Genetically Modified foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Typically, genetically modified foods are transgenic plant products: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil.

Genetically enhanced. Pretty much the same as genetically modified.

In general, non-genetically modified foods of any type (including whole soybeans) are preferred to the their genetically modified counterparts because the long-term health effects of consuming genetically modified foods have not been properly documented yet. There may be unanticipated health risks with consuming certain genetically modified foods.

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.

This acronym is Genetically Modified Organisms.

One of the disadvantages of the genetically modified foods is that it allows animal products in plants which could raise issues for those with dietary restrictions like the vegans. The advantage of the genetically modified foods is that they can increase the crop yield in a very small acreage.

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

The first genetically modified food began in 1994. Scientist genetically modified a tomato which didn't ripen so quickly after it was picked.

Some say that based on scientific studies genetically modified foods are safe to eat and cause no known harm. Others say that few studies have actually been done on the safety of consuming genetically modified foods and anecdotal evidence points to GMO foods being harmful.

i believe that there have been at least 200 modified foods

Genetically Modified foods, or GM foods, can be genetically modified with many different goals in mind. This can be for a faster maturation time or it could be for insect resistance, drought resistance, higher yeild, etc. Most GMO foods today are genetically manipulated to be resistant to herbicides or to produce an insecticide within the plant itself. Genetic engineering has no affect on their maturation.

Genetically modified foods account for a majority of the world's agricultural output today. To ban them completely would mean that millions would go starving.

Some suspected health problems caused by genetically modified foods are allergies and digestive problems.

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

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

The safety of genetically modified foods is not known. Some say studies show it is safe, but there are also studies that show it may not be safe. There is anecdotal evidence, such as doctors recommending that their patients stop eating foods that are genetically engineered and their health improving.
