Since 1994 Americans have been eating genetically altered foods, in a large part produced by Monsanto.

Large food chains like Mc Donald’s and Frito-lay Co. have recently refused to continue using modified potatoes and corn produced by Monsanto due to public pressures.

Another big concern are Prosilac injections in cows. This hormone increases milk production by 10 to 15 percent, but scientific studies have shown that this drug is harmful and contains high levels of cancer-causing agents.

But how can eating or drinking something genetically modified not eventually alter our own genetic make-up ? When we discover the long-term effects, will it be too late ?
