GMF

Should be labeled on products

What is GMF??

Genetically Engineered Food. Food that have been modified in the laboratory to enhance desired traits such as increased resistance to herbicides or improved nutritional content.

Benefits of GMF ?

There are benefits like that the process adds more vitamins and minerals into other food, Creating plants that can withstand long periods of drought or high salt content in soil and groundwater will help people to grow crops in formerly inhospitable places, adds antifreeze gene to prevent the coldness to kill the sensitive seedlings and helps kill pesticides on the farms.

Risk of GMF ?

Some risk of GMF is that they are harmful to other species, some people can be allergic to the GMF, and also when the process of the gene transfer non targeted organisms can be affected.

Why should GMF be labeled?

I believe GMF should be labeled because I want to know what my food has been through before I consume. I want to know if the food I'm eating is going to make me have an allergic reaction or not.
