The GMOs Americans already eat

This article provides a snapshot of what GMO products Americans already consume, as well as the total number of varieties of each that have been created and by whom. I quote:

Since GMOs were approved for commercial use, and then first planted into U.S. soil in 1996, their production has increased dramatically. More than 90% of all soybean cotton and corn acreage in the U.S. is used to grow genetically engineered crops. Other popular and approved food crops include sugar beets, alfalfa, canola, papaya and summer squash. More recently, apples that don’t brown and bruise-free potatoes were also approved by the FDA.

End of quote.
