A major debate about what you actually are eating is brewing.
No, this discussion isn't centered on the extremely popular topic of health and fitness, struggles with being overweight or the obesity crisis but rather the existence of Genetically Modified Organisms (or GMOs) in your foods, and whether you as the consumer have a right to know that they're in there.
For the record, GMOs are exactly what the name suggests: organisms found in food that have been genetically altered through engineering techniques. Some have suggested that GMOs aren't safe and that ingesting foods with these characteristics could lead to disease, toxicity within your body or a bevy of undisclosed nutritional shortcomings and issues in the future.
Truthfully, you're probably eating foods right now that contain GMOs. They can be found in cereals, canned soup or even baby formula. More recently, GMOs made headlines when debates raged as to whether GMOs should be disclosed in the form of labels on the food we're eating.
The general public, for all intent and purposes, has voiced opinions that favor labeling GMOs in food, but you have to wonder where this concern was previously and whether or not this uprising isn't just the flavor of the month when it comes to food.
