What are GMOs? (Infographic)

GMOs are everywhere — they are found in 80 percent of packaged foods in America and in over 90 percent of our soy and cotton. But what are they? This handy infographic delivers a nice overview of what is means to be “genetically modified” and which countries require labeling and which do not.

This seriously makes me want to go home to Australia. Why would the US and Canada want to be the only places in the world that are so lenient with GMO's? It terrifies me to think of what the people here are putting in their bodies.

I can't beleive labeling is not mandatory in Canada and the US. This needs to change!
