People have been manipulating genes in plants for centuries, but arguing that this means GMOs are safe "misses the point that GM crops are now the agricultural products most heavily treated with herbicides, and that two of these herbicides may pose risks of cancer," Dr. Philip Landrigan, a professor of preventive medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, and Charles Benbrook, a crop and soil scientist at Washington State University, wrote in an opinion article published in the Aug. 20 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

Genetically modified foods, also known as biotech foods, are ones that are grown from genetically modified organisms, or crops. Specific changes have been made to the DNA of these crops by genetic engineering techniques that encourage extra nutrients to be produced, faster growth, an ability to resist diseases and other purposes. Plant products are often the main group of modified foods, such as cotton seed oil, canola, corn and soybeans. Typical Genetically Modified Foods Almost every area in the food production market is using genetic modification to produce foods that taste better, grow faster, resist disease and improve the amount of nutrients found in the food.

At times, the genetic modification helps to save natural resources because the “new” food does not need as much water or energy to be processed.
