As consumers, we have the right to know what we’re eating and feeding our families. According to the World Health Organization, genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) are organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. The United States is the world leader in genetically engineered crop production, with 165 million acres, or nearly half of global production. Currently in the United States, approximately 85% of all processed foods contain GMOs (www.gmofilm.com). Labeling is about empowering people towards informed decision making, so what 's bad about it?
The cause of this pickiness is the strain 's ability to produce and respond to extracellular signals. For example alpha cells excrete a oligopeptide pheromone “alpha factor” which causes cells to stop in the cell cycle just before the start of DNA replication (Hicks 1973). Yeast cells can also switch between mating types during the growth of a clone of homothallic cells, This process follows several rules, firstly being that when the cell splits, it produces two cells of either the same type as the mother cell, or two cells of the opposite type. Second, the ability to make cells of different mating types is restricted to “experienced cells” or cells that have split before. This means that spores or buds rarely if ever produce cells of a different mating type.

Genes found In GM soy can be transferred into the DNA of bacteria that lives inside us. Insecticide produced by GM corn was found in the blood of pregnant woman and their unborn fetuses. Numerous health problems increases when GMO’s were introduced in 1996. Food allergies exploded, and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders, and digestive problems. If GMO seed companies want everyone to believe that GMO’s are safe then why don 't they put a GMO label on all products that contain genetically modified organisms to let consumers know exactly what they are putting in their own and their family 's bodies.
In 1935 a Russian scientist named Andrei Nikolaevitch Belozersky discovered a way to isolate pure DNA. As more and more scientists were developing ways to use DNA to make certain foods stronger and more of it the term GMO stood out. GMO or Genetically Modified Organisms is a food that has been modified to fix a certain problem. Some people like the idea of GMOS but something else wise. I personally think that we have the right to know where our foods are coming from and think that labeling of GMOS should mandatory.
I. GMO, or genetically modified organisms is when a gene of an organism is biologically transferred to another organism changing its characterization. (Diaz) A. According to BIONET, the process of engineering a crop goes as such: (BIONET) 1. First, the gene that is modified is isolated or mapped. (BIONET) 2.
