On average an American ways approximately 179 pounds. On average, Americans will eat about 193 pounds of genetically modified food over a 12-month period. There have not been any long term studies on the effects of GM food on human health. In my opinion, that seems kind of sketchy. It seems as if they may be trying to hide something from the public. Commoners will underestimate how much of this type of food they eat because they forget that almost all types of processed foods have ingredients that are genetically modified. However one of the main problems for the upcoming generation, is that the children are eating a much larger proportion of genetically modified food to their weight. In general they will be eating this type of food for their entire life.
