What Are GMO's?
GMO's are genetically modified organisms. These organism's are typically viral genes, bacteria, plants or animals that are created by splicing genes; which in turn alter the DNA of a species by introducing DNA from other animals, plants, or microbes into the organism.
What Is The Purpose?
It has been stated by top GMO producing companies that the purpose of GMO production is, it is scientifically/theoretically beneficial. Reported to produce higher crop yields, improve nutrient content, improve flavor, and produce bug/pesticide resistant seeds. These companies play both sides of the fence, also creating the companion herbicides and pesticides used to help nurse the crops.
Our First GMO Sighting
In 1982 the FDA (Food & Drug Administration),approves first GMO. Humulin, insulin produced by genetically engineered E.coli bacteria, appears on the market.
In 1994 GMO's Hit Grocery Stores. The FDA approves the Flavr Savr Tomato for sell on grocery store shelves.
It is estimated that around 80% of the food on the market today is genetically enhanced or modified says The California Department Of Food & Agulture.

We Are Our Environment
With a rise is GMO production, of course there would be a rise is pesticide use. This increase has been environmentally recognized in rain water, ground water, and air samples. And as if that wasnt enough, a significant percentage of pregnant women are said to have GMO toxins in them and give them to their baby.
These toxins are present in mother and fetus: Which are used in pesticides for toxic effects.
