Infographic: Should Genetically Modified (GM) Foods be Banned?

This infographic entitled "Should Genetically Modified Foods (GM Foods) Be Banned" takes a neutral stand in relating various information, statistics and data concerning GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

It includes a timeline showing the history of GM Foods and describes some  potential benefits, crop varieties, rates of production in various countries (including the U.S.), the governmental agencies responsible for regulating these crops and the global response.  It also briefly points out a few health, safety and environmental concerns.

According to the infographic, the United States currently produces the largest percentage (68%) of the world's supply of GM Foods, yet has much less stricter regulations concerning GMOs than does the European Union.
