Genetically Engineered Food
Many of the papayas that make their way to the US are genetically modified to be ringspot virus-resistant. While we don’t fully know the effect of genetically engineered foods on humans, many European countries are against it because of the effect on animals.
Found in: Papayas, corn, and many other crops.
Health Hazards: Animals fed GE foods have suffered intestinal and organ damage, tumors, birth defects, premature death and sterility by the third generation.
