Big news for those concerned about what's in our food today.

A large percentage of crops in the U.S. today are genetically modified to make them heartier and more resistant to drought, disease and insects.

The National Academy of Sciences reviewed nearly 900 publications on the effects of genetically engineered features in corn, soybean and cotton to determine the safety.

Those researchers announced today that GMOs are safe for people.

They also says they could find no evidence that GMOs pose any risk to the environment.
