Genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs), such as genetically modified crops or genetically modified fish. GM crops are developed by changing a plant's genetic structure in order to help the plant resist against discases caused by insects or viruses or to produce larger crops. Scientists first discovered that DNA can transfer between organisms in 1946. The first genetically modified plant was produced in 1983.
