Discover Monsanto: What is a GMO?

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 organizations that have reviewed them at www.gmoanswers.com

What is Monsanto's stance on food labeling?
We support the voluntary labeling of products by food manufacturers to meet and address customers' demands in order to provide people the information they need to make informed decisions.
