GMO Project

Are they bad?

what are GMO

GMO's stand for genetically modified organisms.Which means the food is altered genetically.Which involves plants or animals that have undergone a process wherein scientists alter their genes with DNA from different species of living organisms, bacteria, or viruses to get desired traits such as resistance to disease or tolerance of pesticides.

my opinion

There is no data to show that GMO's are bad or do anything to our health but genetically altering organisms cant be good for our health especially if the animal it starts off as is given different genes when it is killed it could put toxins in the food and give people illness.

But there are some benefits of them like they could alter a food to give a certain vitamin people need.

Corn

Many producers modify corn so they are resistant to herbicide glyphosate, which is used to kill weeds.

Milk

RGBH, or recombinant bovine growth hormone, is a GE variation on a naturally occurring hormone injected into dairy cows to increase milk production. It is banned for milk destined for human consumption in the European Union, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

squash and zucchini

While the majority of squashes on the market are not GE, approximately 25,000 acres of crookneck, straightneck, and zucchinis have been bioengineered to be virus resistant
