What Does a GMO Look Like?
We’ve gotten the question several times, “What is a GMO?” While we’ve enlisted plenty of experts who’ve provided insights on what they are, whether they’re dangerous, why they’re not labeled, how they impact the environment, why they’re banned in some countries, and whether they cause allergies, we’ve not actually shown a picture of what they look like. Now, we’ve got pictures!
