What are GMO's ?
GMO's stands for Genetically Modified Organisms
GMO's are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering.
Benefits of GMO's
It allows increase in food production and more nutritious crops.
Increase in economic gains.
Dicamba- A developmental toxin used as a weed killer that disrupts the plants hormonal system.
In 2009 farmers dumped more than 57 million pounds of Glyphosate on food crops.
Chemicals such as Dicamba are likely to lead to 60-100 percent increase in the amount of herbicides used.
Glyphosate acts as a endocrine(hormone producer) disruptor
"85% of corn and soy grown in the United States comes from seeds whose DNA has been rejiggered (to increase yields) and those two crops play starring roles in countless processed foods, from soda to salad dressing to bread."
Helps reduce cost of the crop market.

GMO's can be found in as many as 60-70% of the foods in the U.S.
The microbiome is the microorganism population which lives on and in the human body.
