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.

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.

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.

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).

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

Genetically modified crops are crops with plants that have been genetically altered in order to increase the yield of the crop. For example, the plant may have been genetically altered to become bigger or more resistant to bugs.

genetically modified tomatoes are exactly what the name implies i.e tomatoes which have been genetically modified. if you want to know what genetic modification is you should not have said your question is different then "what is a genetically modified organism" to my knowledge there are no commercial varieties of genetically modified tomatoes available right now but i know they are working on: roundup ready tomatoes, brackish water tomatoes and varies disease immunities.

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.

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.

To our knowledge, cos or romaine lettuce has not been transgenically modified as of August 2014.

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.

i believe that there have been at least 200 modified foods

That remains to be seen. There have been none to date.

Crops that are known to have been genetically modified are corn, soybeans, canola, cotton, papayas, yellow squash. Potatoes and tomatoes have also been genetically modified, but they are not openly being produced commercially for sale to consumers. Golden Rice is a genetically modified crop, and recently a GMO apple has been modified to reduce browning after being cut. Also, a GMO broccoli is being/has been released in the UK.

It all depends on what you mean by genetically modified. We have modified corn and other grain crops for tens of thousands of years. So all of US corn is genetically modified. If you mean GMOs in which pesticide resistant genes of been added to the DNA of the corn, up to 80% are GMO's.

Yes, there is a type of salmon that has been 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.

Herbicide Tolerant (HT) soybeans are a variety of genetically modified soybean that have been modified to be herbicide resistant.

It was not discovered it was an invention. Crops have been genetically modified by selective cross breeding since before the start of recorded history. It is impossible to know who first attempted it.

It depends on how it has been modified and what traits were selected for modification. Generally they grow at a similar rate to non-modified crops.
