NEWS ~ Genetically-Modified-Organisms (GMO’s) + Monsanto

Editor's Note: This is an area where Wikipedia falls short and gives little attention to the health or environmental affects of the industry practices.

genetically modified organism (GMO), also known as a transgenic organism, is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are the source of genetically modified foods and are also widely used in scientific research and to produce goods other than food. The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism', defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").

The Organic Consumers Association, and the Union of Concerned Scientists and Greenpeace stated that risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. Some health groups say there are unanswered questions regarding the potential long-term impact on human health from food derived from GMOs, and propose mandatory labeling or a moratorium on such products. Concerns include contamination of the non-genetically modified food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment and nature the rigor of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs.
