GM food is food geneticlly modified to do something. For example, a land plant could be modified to live underwater, a tomato modified to be bigger. This is done by inserting or extracting genes from the organism. Animals can be modified too. Cows can be changed into creating healthier milk for example. Lots of people are worried that GM food is not safe to eat. To find out more about this go to this website.
