 According to the Mayo Clinic:

*Note: GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Also referred to as GE or Genetically Engineered. Toxins (pesticides) are contrived (engineered) into the seed of plants to kill bugs that try to eat them.  Genes from other sources than the plant itself are “sown” into the seed for man-made purposes. The natural gene structure of the seed is altered to become “other than nature intended”. They have never been proven safe and are to be avoided.
