GMO food scientist continue to find creative ways to insert genes for exact traits into plants and animal DNA. People are debating if genetic engineering is changing the food we eat and the world we live in. Most people don’t know that they’ve been eating genetically engineered foods since the mid 1990s. More than 60 percent of all processed foods on U.S supermarket shelves including pizza, chips, cookies, salad dressing, ice cream, corn syrup, and baking powder contain ingredients from engineered soybeans, corn, or canola. In the past decade, the biotech plants that go into these processed foods have leaped from hothouse oddities to crops planted on a massive scale on 130 million acres.
