Why?

GMOs are believed to harm people when in reality they can actually be beneficial. In some countries, they are used to add anthocyanins to tomatoes to aid cancer recovery.

Why is my topic important?

Most believe that the GM food is unsafe because it hasn't been tested. GM Foods are some of the most tested foods in history. In a study of 1,700 reviews it was found that GMOs are every bit of safe and even more nutritious.

Who?

Most people that are against GMOs haven't done the research for these products. They believe that GM Foods use more pesticides and insecticides.

In a German PLos one study they concluded that on average, GM Biotechnology has reduced pesticide use by 37% and increased yields by 22%.

Farmers love the concept because it is saving money.
