GMOs, or Genetically Modified Organisms, are used in about 80% of all processed foods and are probably in the many of the things you love to eat.

Dr. Michael Hansen of Consumer Reports says this claim is absolutely false because he says there has actually been explosion in the use of pesticides since the introduction of GMOs into our food crops. Dr. Hansen says the main reason for this is that weeds built up a resistance to the original pesticides, which led to heavier spraying of chemicals on engineered crops.
