What types of plants are being modified?

    Corn plants are commonly genetically-modified to contain their own pesticides. Rice is another popular candidate, and is modified to contain extra vitamins to nourish people in third-world countries. Tomatoes are also often modified to stave off rot for longer.

    While these all sound good, there is still the problem of genetic diversity loss that comes with the use of GMOs (genetically-modified organisms), which makes populations more vulnerable to sudden total crop loss from changing environmental conditions or plant diseases.
