GMOS Introduction: I believe that GMOS are good for this world and for the people because the gmos can save us from starving when all the food is gone. GMOS are a genetically modified organism is an organism whose genetic materials that have been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMO foods are okay to eat because some food that have gmos could have some genetic characteristics in them to make the food survive the hot when that food has to be frozen. GMOS are different from foods that don 't have GMOS Body 1: GMOS can save the world because if we had no food because if there was a drought and the plants died. Then we could just plant GMO foods, The drought won’t really do anything to the plant. If it was really cold out and the plants died because of how cold the weather. The GMO plant won’t die because there are stuff in the plants to make it survive the cold and the hot weathers unlike the regular plants they can’t do that. “Where heat will burn the crops, soil has been ruined by over farming and drought, and bugs ride across oceans to feast on defenseless plants” (Parrett). This is important because if a drought really happens and we have no food then we can count on the GMO foods. Body 2: GMOS are safe to eat and are healthy for you to eat because the …show more content…
They also are way way better than non gmo foods because non gmo foods you can get diseases from them like heart disease and cancer and the chance of having a stroke when you eat though’s foods, But when you eat foods that have gmos in the foods then the risk of having them diseases. If you buy gmo foods you won’t have to spend a lot of money on the food that you would need but if you buy non gmo foods then you would spend a lot of money just on the food that you would need to

To conclude everything, Gmos are extremely harmful for you. They can mess up a lot of your life. They are bad for your health. Even though it can be beneficial to some people, i have my own opinion. Everyone will always disagree with something no matter what the thing is.
GMO's are genetically altered organisms made by scientists. By altering the organisms' genetics it could change its size, color, taste, and physical appearance. A GMO is meant to be stronger, better and simply more effective than past generations that haven't been altered. They are more capable of adapting and surviving new environments they wouldn't naturally be able to. For example crops can be made pest resistant, sweeter, bigger, be able to grow faster, be able to grow under any type of conditions rather than having to wait for certain season to get that certain type of crop and even be the new 'edible vaccines'(Scientific American Inc).
The Non-GMO talk passionately about the effects GMOs have on human bodies and the environment. They do have valid statements such as, “In the absence of credible independent long-term feeding studies, the safety of GMOs is unknown” (Non-GMO Project). This is completely true. There have been no long-term studies on what GMOs can do to humans which can be a caution people can take when deciding of they want to consume products that have been genetically modified. However, the other of this argument, the people against GMOs, have created such a panic within the rest of the country that many decide to get GMO free products just in case there are negative effects.
Genetically modified organisms help in improving crops, increase nutritious value in plants, increases its life, it has better resistance to diseases, drought or insect pests. I also agree to the fact that sometimes research and development are not done properly on Genetically modified organisms. We are not aware about the facts or figures of how much it is impacting humans. Consumption of GMO food is good or bad for human health. It needs some more time to reach humans for consumption.
gon Why Gmo is a good thing Gmo is a acronym for genetically modified organism. Now what that means is that a organism that has been genetically modified or changed. There are a lot of things that are Gmo. For example there are about 97% of soybean and 88% of corn with 94% of cotton are Gmo .Other things that are gmo are rise,cotton ,alfalfa,canola,sugar beets, papaya and even salmon with many more.
GMOs are considered to be the next agricultural “innovation” as some would say, but this is incorrect. They think that GMOs are a way to feed everyone on earth. Giving them the nutrients that they need to grow in conditions that most plants can’t live in, while not causing harm to physical and environmental health. They are wrong. GMOs do more harm than good.
It’s a popular topic on the media that GMOs are bad for the human body. Well, little did the they know that ninety percent of corn grown in the US is genetically modified (Margie Kelly), and the body can 't even distinguish between GMOs and non-GMOs! There are people debating that GMOs are unhealthy, bad for the economy and even the environment. These people must be uneducated on this topic. Genetically modified crops improve our society because they allow farmers to yield a larger crop, improve the quality their crop, and lessen the negative environmental impacts of their crops.
The proposed goal of GMOs is to increase food production. This will supposedly in turn lower food costs, and make it easier to distribute food to feed poor populations around the world. However research shows that global food production has increased enough to, “feed 10 billion people”, one and a half times more than what we need to feed every single person on Earth (The Huffington Post). And yet with this charming initiative having been accomplished, there are still groups of people going hungry everyday. This is not to say that companies like Monsanto are to blame for leaving people hungry or in poverty, but it questions if their goals are based on true concern.
GMO or Genetically Modified Organism is applied to any food or meat which has been genetically modified through its growth or cultivation. In other words, vast industries are merging DNA from various species in order to increase production and decrease costs. Sure, it turned out just fine for the moneymakers, however this is on the cost of ordinary people who tremble upon the fact to go in the markets and examine and study every label which enters their shopping card. Every fruit, veggie
For years, the health and safety of genetically modified foods have been debated and researched by scientists, but the question still stands: should genetically modified foods be allowed for consumption? The process of genetic modification involves inserting a gene from bacteria or a virus into an organism where it would normally not be found. The purpose is to alter the genetic code in plants and animals to make them more productive or resistant to pests or farming techniques. Genetically modified organisms, more commonly known as GMOs, have been a controversial topic of debate for a number of reasons. The ethics behind genetically modified foods come into question due to an abundance of short and long-term effects from the process, many of which are still unknown today.
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Genetically Modified Foods? Genetically modified (GM) foods are organisms that have had new genes added to themselves from other organisms. Being around since 1994, they are produced in a way that is very similar to genetic engineering. The technique used in this type of crop management has been introduced to ensure farmers and merchants are able to improve crop or food quality in a more efficient way.
Nevertheless, I hold a opposite view, I think GM food is worsening our world rather than improving it. GM food has negative effects on both nature and human while producing and using. Negative Effects on Nature Reduce biodiversity Although through genetic modification, food can contain various kinds of nutrition we need, but in long-term, GM food can threaten the biodiversity of our planet. GM food is
ADVANTAGES OF GM FOODS World population is increasing day by day which implies scarcity of food will be the major challenge that the world will be facing in the future. Genetically modified foods can meet this rising need. 1)STRONG GROWTH: GMO is typically designed to have a faster growth. It can be grown in any harsh environment; each seed is improved to be stronger and can withstand herbicides and pesticides.
