Genetically Modified Organisms: Foods that are first produced in a laboratory by inserting specific genes into a plant or animal. The Genetetically Modified Organism gene is added because of a quality, such as resistance to disease or better nutritional value that should make the food easier to grow or "healthier," for the people who consume it.
