Genetically modified food, sometimes called Round-Up Ready, has been genetically modified to accept certain pesticides better (Monsanto's Round Up, for example). It is not of greater nutritional value, it does not grow better, it does not grow faster, and it does not resist bugs better. It merely accepts pesticides better meaning you can use less. If your neighbor grows GMF and it spreads to your fields (by wind or bug or whatever), you will be charged a fee for having it in your field. Also whether or not the food is safe in humans has not been determined by any long-term studies. Who does it effect? Potentially everyone because once that genie is out of the bottle, there is no telling what long-term effects it will have on us or the environment.

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.
