Opening Explanation:

Genetically modified organisms have had genes added to them from other organisms. This is usually done to increase the yield (how much grows), make them tastier or healthier, and/or make them resistant to insects.

Unless you actively avoid GM products, they are likely to be a large percentage of what you eat.
