How much do you know about genetically-modified foods? A cheeky music video by David Holmes, the New York University-educated force behind the popular "Fracking Song," aims to educate the public with "OMG GMO's!," which addresses the issues surrounding the use of genetically-modified organisms.

The New York Times' Dot Earth blog has some more background on how the song came to be -- it has a lot to do with Holmes attending NYU professor Jay Rosen‘s Studio 20 digital journalism program and was produced by web site PandoDaily -- and some of the more choice lyrics:

Is it bad for us? It depends on the crop
Sometimes it’s more nutritious, sometimes it’s not
And while the pesticides don’t sound very sweet
The EPA assures us that they’re safe to eat

But people should know how their food is grown

Yet Americans don’t label GMOs
There are many different kinds of GM foods
Just saying “Made with GMOs” might not do

Now it might be too simple to say “Just ban it”
When there’s potential to help feed the planet
Weigh each crop’s impact on earth and health
And don’t use patents to screw the ones you’re out to help

Watch Holmes's rap, "OMG GMO's," below.

  • Olive Oil

    It's a bit disturbing to think about that a lot of the extra virgin olive oil you consume is contaminated with deodorants and other, non-olive oils. Tom Mueller's book, "<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tom-mueller/fake-olive-oil_b_1174428.html" target="_hplink">Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil</a>," tackles this issue. The Food Fraud Database lists adulterants such as corn oil, hazelnut oil and palm oil. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/celticsu/3102164381/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user:Suzi Rosenberg</a></em>

  • Milk

    After all the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/26/china-tainted-milk_n_1169896.html" target="_hplink">tainted milk scares in China</a>, it's no surprise that milk is at the top of the food fraud list. Adulterants include whey, bovine milk protein, melamine and cane sugar. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/markhillary/829573216/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: markhillary</a></em>

  • Honey

    One third of honey in the U.S. is <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/17/honey-tainted_n_929517.html" target="_hplink">potentially tainted</a>. That means high-fructose corn syrup, glucose, fructose and more. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/sionakaren/3870732249/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: Siona Karen</a></em>

  • Saffron

    Perhaps it's no surprise that saffron is often adulterated, given that it is the most expensive spice in the world. The Food Fraud Database lists sandlewood dust, starch, yellow dye and gelatin threads as some of the contaminants. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/jackson3/3770492248/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: Steven Jackson Photography</a></em>

  • Orange Juice

    Orange juice has been in the news a lot lately after the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/11/orange-juice-imports-fda-fungicide-_n_1200305.html" target="_hplink">fungicide scare</a>. Fungicide might be the tip of the iceberg though -- apparently it can also contain grapefruit juice, marigold flower extract, corn sugar and paprika extract. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/sfllaw/335982719/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: sfllaw</a></em>

  • Coffee

    How do you take your coffee? We're guessing probably without chicory, roasted corn, caramel, malt, glucose, leguminous plants and maltodextrins. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dyobmit/18588671/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: dyobmit</a></em>

  • Apple Juice

    Once we learned that there might be <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/01/arsenic-apple-juice_n_1122979.html" target="_hplink">arsenic in apple juice</a>, we realized that no food ingredient is safe. Although the arsenic might have been blown out of proportion, there are several other common contaminants in everyone's favorite juice box. These include: high-fructose corn syrup, raisin sweetener and synthetic malic acid. <em>Photo by <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/garryknight/5761086703/sizes/z/in/photostream/" target="_hplink">Flickr user: garryknight</a></em>
