Globalization, while offering the advantages of increasing trade, prosperity, and choice, has created problems and new uncertainties. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture have been available for about ten years. Their commercial use has been expanding rapidly in the United States, creeping quietly and stealthily into the consumer’s food. According to recent figures, 75% of food on the shelves contains at least one genetically engineered ingredient. Since 1998, difficulties in placing GM products on the market in the European Union (EU) have given rise to trade tensions with the United States.
