Take a look at the difference between “normal” tomatoes and organic tomatoes. Tomatoes, the first genetically modified food to reach super markets, have obvious differences when compared to the organic selection. The color differences are frightening. The previous generations did not have to face this extreme health and food problem.
This revolution changed the lives and health of teenagers today. Starting in the 1940′s through 1970′s, crops for consumption could now be mass-produced through the use of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) as well as bountiful amounts of pesticides.
Because of GMOs, several risks arise when one devours their long-awaited meal. New allergens, increased toxicity, decreased nutrition, and antibiotic resistance now come into consideration when consuming foods purchased from supermarkets (Bernstein et al., 2003). Previous generations of teenagers did not need to worry about such problems. They simply ate food.
