    One of the biggest concerns about GMO usage is the possible “gene pollution” of wild relatives. In other words, if the GMO gene gets into a wild relative of the crop it could create a super weed or other such problems. The best way to avoid this problem would be to NOT grow GMOs in areas were there are wild relatives. For example tomatoes are from South America. Therefore any GM tomatoes in Africa would not be able to give their GM gene to any wild relatives because tomato relatives don’t grow in Africa.
