Many people have started to avoid GMOs due to lack of scientific evidence regarding their safety. In wake of the rising trend, Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets to ask people a simple question: What does GMO stand for?
GMOs are genetically modified organisms and they are found in the food we eat the products we use. Evidence
suggests that genetically modified foods may be bad for our health and the health of the planet. There are 64 countries that currently require the labeling of genetically modified foods. Most developed countries, including the European Union, Australia, Russia, Brazil, and China, but the United States is not one of them.
