GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering techniques. This allows for the introduction of new traits or characteristics that may not have naturally occurred in the organism.
GMOs are often used in agriculture to create crops that are more resistant to pests, disease, and herbicides, or to increase their nutritional content. They can also be used in the production of medicines and other products.
While some people believe that GMOs are safe and beneficial, others have concerns about their potential environmental and health impacts. As a result, there is ongoing debate and controversy surrounding the use of GMOs in various fields.
