Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms that are artificially produced in a laboratory through genetic engineering. It forms combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and virus genes. The main reason for GMO food production is to ensure that the plants are resistant to drugs and pests.
These are studies conducted to artificially improve properties such as providing resistance against tarnishing in apples. Despite the promises of the biotech industry, there is no evidence that any of the GMOs currently on the market offer greater yield, drought tolerance, improved nutrition, or any other consumer benefits.
The most important issue of GMO is its reliability. GMOs are mostly used in corn, soybean, cotton and canola in the world. GMO products of these products; Many foods such as tomatoes, potatoes, rice, pumpkin, wheat, sunflower, peanuts are also produced.
GMOs are considered harmful by many scientists today. GMOs in foods have various harms to human health.
