GMOs: Genetically Modified Organisms.  See also: Genetically Engineered (GE) organisms.  A GMO is created by inserting a piece of foreign DNA (genetic information, e.g. a gene) into another organism.

There is an enormous amount of information, misinformation and passionate propaganda covering this topic.  Perhaps, you’ve seen it popping up on your social media feeds.  If you’re just getting started – wading into this deep sea of GMO news – I highly suggest watching this piece from CBS Sunday Morning.  It will be 10 minutes well spent.

More commentary on this topic coming soon.
