- GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms
- GMO's alter the fruits and vegetables we eat
- They were created to feed more people
- Some GM plants are also pesticide resistant and don't
spoil as fast
The Affects of Bt-Toxins...
- Something in GMO's
- cause cancerous tumors, liver damage, and digestion problems.
-In a study rats were given a 33% GM corn diet. At the end of the trial, all the rats had tumors the size of ping pong balls, digestion problems, and liver damage.
- Bt-toxins can damage red blood cells
- Cause insects to die
- Can cause autism
So what are Bt - toxins?

Bt - Toxins
- Part of a bacteria family that causes
food poisoning in humans
- Injected into corn and other organisms
we eat to help their growth
- Commonly used as a pesticide alternative
- Usually injected into corn and cotton
- Usually found in soil

Effect GMO's have on the Environment
- Increased herbicide and pesticide use
- Super weeds and Bugs
- Kill insects such as bees and butterflies
- Cross pollination which could result in changing the DNA of a native plant
- Can harm the soil because the Bt-toxins in the root of the plant can get into the soil
