From Wikipedia: ‘……A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Organisms that have been genetically modified include micro-organisms such as bacteria and yeast, insects, plants, fish, and mammals.

Genetic modification involves the mutation, insertion, or deletion of genes. When genes are inserted, they usually come from a different species, which is a form of horizontal gene transfer. In nature this can occur when exogenous DNA penetrates the cell membrane for any reason. To do this artificially may require attaching the genes to a virus or just physically inserting the extra DNA into the nucleus of the intended host with a very small syringe, with the use of electroporation (that is, introducing DNA from one organism into the cell of another by use of an electric pulse) or with very small particles fired from a gene gun.[1][2][3] However, other methods exploit natural forms of gene transfer, such as the ability of Agrobacterium to transfer genetic material to plants,[4] or the ability of lentiviruses to transfer genes to animal cells.[5]…’

Glyphosate is being found in the breast milk of mothers in America. It is a component of Monsanto’s weed killing product RoundUp.  Additional GMO’s  have been created and categorized as RoundUp Ready – able to withstand the indiscriminate herbicide. This is how RoundUp is making it into our Food Supply.
