This article presents the results of an investigation, which has examined the impact produced by transgenics crops and has determined the knowledge and consumption of transgenic foods of habitants in Guayaquil. Reliable information sources were used to perform an exhaustive documentary research and surveys are used for quantitative research. The data collection was done in Guayaquil-Ecuador; the total population is 2,291,158, delimiting a sample of 384 persons. The SPSS software package was used to data analysis and test hypotheses tested. It was found that the global level of transgenic crops is disproportionate, so the social and economic impact varies and is more evident in countries with a higher volume of transgenic crops. In Guayaquil-Ecuador, it was discovered that habitants show a total unknowledge about transgenic products and uncertainty in their consumption.
