What is a GMO?
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. It takes a beneficial
trait that helps a living thing thrive in nature, like an ability to use
water more efficiently, and adapts that trait to a new plant so that it can
better survive in its environment.
What crops are GMO?
The vast majority of fresh food available in your produce
aisle is not derived from GMOs. No GM crops grown by farmers contain animal genes.
Are they safe?
Foods derived from GMOs have a thoroughly tested, proven safety record. A wide range of regulatory bodies, independent scientists and health
associations worldwide agree that food grown from GMOs is as safe to eat
as traditional foods. You can learn more about the safety of GMOs and

What is Monsanto's stance on food labeling?
