Transcript of GMO's

GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms) are bacteria, viral genes, plants or animals created by gene-splicing technologies that alter the DNA of a species by introducing DNA from other microbes, plants and animals and/or pesticidal genes into the organism, creating unstable cellular structures that do not occur in nature.

Currently commercialized GM crops in the U.S. include:
Soy (94%)
Cotton (90%)
Canola (90%)
Sugar beets (95%)
Hawaiian Papaya (more than 50%)

 In the U.S., the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale.
Three corporations—Monsanto, Dupont, and Syngenta—control 53% of the proprietary seed market. They also create the chemicals used on the seeds, a huge moneymaker.
