Although the biotechnology is a little more than a quarter century old, it has promoted significant advances in the food production process. First looking for resistances in plants for specifics herbicides, after mitigating the uses of insecticides in crops, maybe in future a tool to produce pharmaceuticals (Chassy, 2007). Researches show that some genetically modified organisms (GMOs) don't have impact on the human and animal health directly - toxicology, and allergies, and anti-nutrition assay -, as well as they show the GMOs haven't changed the bacteria gut in swine and chicken (Deng, Zhou, X.,, Zhou, P., Du, Hou, Yang, Y., Tan, ..., Fang & Yang, X., 2007). But (de Vendômois, Roullier, Cellier & Séralini, 2009) show the possible occurrences of toxicology in rats that was feed with three GMOs corn variety. He infer the necessity of studies by long duration to expatiate about cancer, fertility and mental problems in mammals. Technology implanted in U.S and Canada in the first moment, GMOs, arrive to fields in continents like Africa, America, Asia, and Europe (Chassy, 2007). Because of these, countries began to make laws to control and ensure a production conform their economic view. Today more than 22 countries cultivate and commercialize these kind of productions. More than 80 species of plants can be manipulated (Fraley, 1994). Plants that the commercial valor and patents are inherent in these, and where are selling together a mix of products like fertilizers,
