We’re talking about genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, this week. We discuss what they are, the labeling requirements, their prevalence in crops, public perception, potential risks and benefits, and the regulations surrounding GMO development.

Topics include:
• What GMOs are and the science behind them
• The prevalence of GMOs in our food supply
• How public perception of GMOs has been shaped
• The potential risks and benefits of GMO technology
• How GMOs are regulated, and what “bio-engineered” labeling means
