The article includes a brief history of the development of genetic engineering, its positive aspects in modern science, medicine and human life. We are also talking about the negative sides of this methodology, which affects the genetic diversity of the living world. Also, the article presents the potential risks of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to the health of humans and other living organisms. It is because of this problem that attention is focused on the issue of whether or not there should be a need to label products containing GMOs in grocery stores.

Keywords: Genetic engineering, genetically modified organisms.
