HOW GMOs COULD BE HARMING HUMANS

The negative factors of genetically modified organisms

WHY SHOULD YOU AVOID GROWING GMOs?

  • could foster severe long-term health affects that may be currently dormant or immeasurable (unknown consequences)
  • bacteria of the body could pick up the genes from the plants
  • may introduce new allergens
  • production is too expensive for developing countries; GMOs widen the already huge gap between the rich and the poor
  • humans have no right to alter the world in such a way; the process is unnatural and immoral
  • companies that grow GMOs care only for the money acquired and have no worries for the potential risks of their actions
  • there is little oversight on the production and care for GMOs
  • GMO foods do not have to be labeled in the US; people don't even know what they're eating
