The effects of these mutations are causing serious health concerns throughout the world. Genetically modified organisms are damaging human health and are continuously introduced into the daily diet without permission. Consuming these genetically altered foods can lead to many health issues. The health risks of genetically modified organisms are too great to allow them to be accessible to people. Immune reactions are a part of the side effects triggered by GMOs.
Genetically modifying foods is an imprecise experiment with widespread repercussions that is harmful to practically everyone involved and should be stopped. This relatively modern technology gives scientists the ability to change and swap the DNA make-up of any species. While this may seem like a breakthrough, it causes many problems for people who eat the modified food, for the plants that are changed, for the farmers who typically grow the original plants, and also for the environment. Another reason we should stop altering food is that no long-term tests have been done to see what side affects could occur, and in tests that have shown negative results these results are disregarded by the U.S. government. Big corporations are too busy making money to care if this will change our world as we know it forever.
There are proof that Genetic engineering food has been given people and animals genetic problem throughout generation like creating tumors and mental problems. “Dr Michael Antoniou, a molecular biologist at King’s College, London, and an expert on GM foods, said: ‘It shows an extraordinary number of tumors developing earlier and more aggressively – particularly in female animals.” If animals can get tumors from eating Monsanto’s food, what would happen if people continued to eat the way they do? It is said that over 80% food in the U.S. is genetically modified. Consumers eat without knowing what’s on the label. Without Monsanto labeling their food, consumers are unaware of exactly what products are in their food.
Cosmetic and drug companies should stop animal testing. By animal testing, the companies not only violate the animals' rights (which is breaking the law), but their testing methods are hazardous which endanger the animal's life. Finally, the companies should stop animal testing because each year we lose hundreds of thousands of animals and could make a difference by stopping this cruelty. Stop the animal testing, and save a life. To start with, cosmetic and drug companies should stop animal testing their products.
Moreover, genetic modification affect the environment negatively, ”Genetically modified corn and soybeans appear in everything from high fructose corn syrup to soy milk, there is no way to get it out of the food chain now.” (Hatch, R.H, 2010) . All of these impacts must be taken into consideration to avoid disasters. Genetic modification process may end up harming animals, plants and any other living organism. After all of these researches found about how much genetic modification is dangerous for all human beings and how does it affect their health , a serious step should be taken. As defined by David (2014) ”researches show toxicity in animals that predict serious medical consequences in humans for long term exposure .” A serious governmental step should be taken to avoid human’s health problems and to avoid negative environmental impacts.
... This difference should be and is not addressed.” (GE Food) Moreover, irrespective of the type of genes that are inserted, the very process of creating a GM plant can result in massive collateral damage that produces new toxins, allergens, and carcinogens. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) urges doctors to prescribe non-GMO diets for all patients. They cite animal studies showing organ damage, gastrointestinal and immune system disorders, accelerated aging, and infertility. Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996.
Allergies that people have never had can spring up from the genetically produced allergens in the GMOs. I think that if we do not start to bring light and change to this situation then it will completely take over our power to keep our bodies healthy. Maybe people will start to realize what is happening and become proactive in a food revolution. I’ve always thought I had the power to keep myself healthy, but after research on the foods I eat I’ve realized that is not the truth. What is the truth is that the GMOs in our foods are very toxic, and something has to be done about their production.
Farmers should be banned from mixing their livestock’s food with antibiotics because antibiotics are bad to the humans, antibiotics are unnecessarily or used right, and antibiotics are dangerous. If farmers were banned from mixing their livestock food with antibiotics, would the consumers really be losing. There would be a lot less deaths, if farmers were banned from using
It is up to the government and food corporations to make that possible. Without proper labeling of the contents in their food, companies are fooling America. The government should allow there to be research conducted on the long term effects of these chemicals so that there is healthier product being distributed. If companies agree to label the harmful chemicals and hormones found in the food we consume, then there will be a greater mindfulness in society.
Injecting and feeding hormones and antibiotics to animals is a huge con... ... middle of paper ... ... can lead to negative feedback, which can be dangerous because it signals the glands to stop the production of the hormone. The body will become dependent on the synthetic hormone that is being consumed by food, and it can cause severe health threats to humans. Although, the Food and Drug Administration states that hormones and antibiotics are not problematic to humans, researchers state the contrary. Europe banned U.S. imported meat from their country, this is perfect example of the danger that these toxic foods can do to humans. This issue is mainly in the United States, but people all over the world are also being affected.
