True GMO's

Ralph Pelletier

What is a GMO

A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.

Are GMO'S safe

Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMO'S. GMO'S have also been linked to cancer and birth defects due to high levels of Glyphosate.

GMO'S impact on the environment and farmers

Over 80% of all GMOs grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, use of toxic herbicides like Roundup has increased 15 times since GMOs were introduced. Now As a result of more GMO use, the companies that make GMOs now have the power to sue farmers whose fields are contaminated with GMOs, even when it is the result of inevitable drift from neighboring fields. GMOs therefore pose a serious threat to farmer sovereignty and to the national food security of any country where they are grown, including the United States.

My verdict

GMOs are good in some way by increasing crop yield, but GMOs have a very negative effect on our health and on the environment and makes it harder in farmers. So overall GMOs are not good.
