A number of countries grow and use genetically modified crops, including the U.S. In fact, the U.S. is one of the leading producers. Other large producers of GM crops include Argentina, Brazil, India, Canada, and China. Popularity is growing in some South American and African countries as well as Australia. In European Union nations, however, they remain unpopular.
There a many countries that do use GM crops, but it’s important to understand why some countries are concerned. Although humans have been genetically modifying plants and animals for quite a long time, there is a difference in how it’s done in the laboratory and in the field or home. Additionally some of the modifications have long term and possibly unknown affects. One example of this, is the antibiotic resistance issue. Antibiotic resistant genes have been found in many GM plants and they have caused great concern whenever the discussion of GM crops comes up.
