Bully In A Injustice World
They won't leave me alone
"...Community, Identity, Stability" (Huxley,1)
I’m strongly against anything that is genetically modified. Genetically modifying an organism or person is risky and dangerous. A GMO is basically any organism whose genetics has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMOs are relocating genes in a much more unpredictable way compared to natural breeding. This produces genotypes that could never exist in nature. With transgenic technology, scientists are transferring genes not just across species but even across kingdoms, inserting animal genes into microbes (single-celled organisms) or plants. GMO contamination has also caused economic losses for organic and non-GMO farmers who often struggle to keep their crops pure.This is causing farmers to use even more toxic herbicides every year. Not only does this create environmental harm, GM foods contain higher residues of toxic herbicides. They reduce biodiversity, pollute water resources, and are unsustainable. The herbicides are used to control unwanted plants from growing. This harmful chemical is linked with hormone disruption, birth defects, and cancer. GMOs require an abundant amount of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides; These things are poisons.The health consequences of eating genetically modified organisms are largely unknown. Genetically engineered foods have not been shown to be safe to eat and may have unpredictable consequences. Mixing genetic material from totally unrelated species, genetic engineering releases a lot of unpredictable side effects. Current GMOs have nothing to offer of reducing hunger and poverty, improving health, and rural livelihoods, and environmental sustainability. Even if some GMOs are safe for human consumption, this does not mean that all GMOs are safe. Each new GMO has its own benefits and risk. The European scientists are pushing for these GMOs which could become very bad and harmful for our society and could effect us in ways we wouldn't think possible. GMOs are harming humans and the society because it's as if you are buying a fake product. They are not freshly produced such as organic, people put chemicals in these foods and cause future problems with humans. It's not good to support these GMO products everyone should want them to stop therefore we have to stop buying them so that we can have a better and healthier society. With organic foods people's lives last longer because they are eating much healthier food and none of it is processed food. Chemicals in food can really cause an impact on the human body and not for the good but only for the bad. There is a huge difference between organic foods and GMOs they even have a difference in color because the organic food is brighter than the GMO foods. The reason the color is brighter is because the organic food is all natural meaning its bright and healthy. On the other hand, the GMOs food is darker because it's been processed and many chemicals have been put through it causing it not to be fresh and natural leaving it with a dark dirty color. The only reason why people support the GMOs food is because it's cheaper then organic food. If we could lower prices to organic food there is without a doubt that people would buy more organic food. Also, people support GMO food because of the taste they put chemicals in the food to make it taste better and people like that because it's still cheaper.
