In light of it being GMO Awareness Month this October, and that we’ve has written extensively on the subject but never done a really succinct piece on what a genetically modified organism is, I’m passing on this infographic from Nature’s Path Organic Foods. It does a good job of explaining what a GMO is, and the current situation in regards to requiring labeling on them in food in various places around the world.
Hint: The US and Canada don’t require labeling, while many other major countries do.
