Do you know the foods genetically modified? Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from organisms whose genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally, e.g. through the introduction of a gene from a different organism (World Health Organization). This is different from breed improvement. The typical GMF are potatoes, corn, rapeseed, soybeans and so on. These foods are accepted by Japanese Ministry of Health and the GMF are being distributed.
