Moscow: Russian scientists demand a 10-year ban on Genetically modified foods (GMOs)  to thoroughly study their influence on human health, reports RT television.

Genetically modified foods are foods produced from organisms that have had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These techniques have allowed for the introduction of new crop traits as well as a far greater control over a food’s genetic structure than previously afforded by methods such as selective breeding and mutation breeding
