What Are GMOs & How Many US Foods Contain Them?

This is reposted from the real food cause 

Written by Matthew McDermott, Treehugger

In light of it being GMO Awareness Month this October, and that we’ve had written extensively on the subject but never done a really succinct piece on what a genetically modified organism is, I’m passing on this infographic that does a good job of explaining what a GMO is, and the current situation in regards to requiring labeling on them in food in various places around the world.

Hint: The US and Canada don’t require labeling, while many other major countries do.
