GMO Foods Effects What does the destruction of organic foods, crops and humans have in common? That is right, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Everyone knows that Genetically Modified Food is the “next best thing”, and is a cure for hunger, but just how safe are the foods to consume? Genetically Modified foods are taking a toll on planet earth for many reasons, and could end up being the demise of the planet. Crops are what physically keep us going as a planet, so when science and farming became one, we knew that the outcome was probably going to be a bad outcome, one that would have us all.
Introduction The debate over whether to keep the production genetically modified organisms, or to cease it all together. They help many countries around the world with low food sources, due to climate and other hindrances. With GMO’s aiding countries in need, it will have a helping hand for the availability of more food. These crops and livestock promote ideal solutions to nutrition, world hunger and the environment. With all that being said, GMO foods are one of the most frowned upon food sources in the world.
Growing GM crops can also result in fruits and vegetables that stay fresh for a prolonged period of time and taste better. GM crops also benefit the economy and assist in feeding more people. While we struggle with feeding our population, “The population will continue to grow” (Calandrelli 1) For instance, genetic engineering in agriculture can minimize the cost of producing food. Thus, GMO’s in crops can result ... ... middle of paper ... ... Cons of Genetically Modified Food.” newportnaturalhealth.org. Newport Natural Health, 9 July 2013.
In conclusion, the application of genetically modified food has a lot of pros and cons. There is so much disagreement about the benefits and risks of GM because there are so many different views surrounding it. This issue is very important today because it will change our future. How would the world be when every single living creature will be in some aspect genetically modified? Would we be more resistant to illness?
In a time before genetically modified crops were as common as they are today, the use of the crop was to feed a person or use in a way to gain money. It was the responsibility of other aspects of crop growing to deter pests and keep the plant healthy. Genetically modified crops and foods are now coupled with the “proper” use of the crop and responsible for the other phase of growing crops. Many ecologists b... ... middle of paper ... ... growing of genetically modified foods may be damaging the environment and the ecosystem but when it comes to the labeling debate my opinion is a solid no despite the fears and unknown that are associated with the food. The debate over labeling genetically modified foods in Colorado revolves around the economic, health and consumer choice aspects of GM foods.
Today, there are big companies that promote the research and produce GMOs. One of the biggest companies is called Monsanto. Monsanto, and the other companies, produce GMOs today because they believe that they can benefit the world. GMOs are used today primarily by farmers, who can have their crops modified to help them grow. This was one of the reasons GMOs were invented.
But opponents for GMO continue to fight and protest the safety of any GMO’s and are we truly ready for them, currently agricultural plants are one of the most frequently used examples of genetically modified organisms, some benefits of genetic engineering in agriculture are increased crop yields, which advocates believe will reduced the costs of food and reduce the need for pesticides. They also believe that they enhance the nutrient composition of food quality and is resistance to pests and disease, many feel that using GMO’s can benefit the world 's growing
The rapid growth of the Genetically Modified Food that available in the market has been a huge concern for consumers and many people debate between that should we go for or against the Genetically Modified Foods. It has been a huge phenomenon around the globe which people often ask what is Genetically Modified Food and why should we have that in our daily life? Genetically Modified Food, GMF, refers to the crop plants that have been modified by using molecular biology technique to improve the genetic material, DNA, of the foods. In fact, minority activists who insist the entire world to be more “organic” are claiming that the genetics and biotechnology modified foods that are introduced by scientist and humanitarians are superfluous and unreasonable. However, the GMF are beneficial to human because there are reducing the pesticide use, amount of land devoted to agriculture and at the same time enhancing on the qualities and nutrients of the foods.
This devastating trend, due to irresponsible farming practices as a result of the industrialization of the food industry, has become all too common. Returning to organic farming, which our grandparents referred to as farming, and reclaiming our food is not only our choice, it is our right. Conventional farming practices are responsible for many negative health and environmental issues. One of the main issues is the creation of monocultures in the farming environment. Specifically growing the same species of plants or animals in mass quantities without variation every season is not natural.
But There are Also a lot of concerns for genetically modified organisms because we are making the food in a lab and not naturally growing it and also that it can cause cancer or that it can produce super weeds and many more. But I Believe that GMO (genetically modified organisms) are good and that some of them might be
