Genetically Modified Organisms
The road to revolution and development
GMO's promise many health benefits!
GMO will have health benefits all over the world, including starving malnutritioned third world countries. For this scientists have added vitamins and nutrients to the food most commonly eaten, such as rice. Scientists are working on "golden rice" which has added vitamin A, an essential vitamin commonly deprived in kids.
GMO's also help in the medical field. Scientists are working towards inserting vaccines into the crop, saving time energy and money. Otherwise the shipment and distribution of vaccines is to much, but with the new development vaccines will be easier to ship, store, and administer.
GMO's will help struggling farmers!
Not only will it reduce the amount of pests and weed killers, it will also reduce losses from frost. Scientists have been experimenting by placing anti-freeze genes into tomatoes. But most importantly, GM crops will increase the amount of yield per farm without having to increase farm land size.
GMO's will also help the environment!
As for the threat of insects adapting to the innovation scientists have created a buffer zone. This gives the pests something to feed on, which reduces the pressure for them to adapt. This buffer zone also deters cross-pollination and gives a place for the harmless, beneficial insects.
GMO's are completely natural!
Farmers that have adapted GMO's have the most promising future to help feed and expand the world population
GM companies only maintain crop that has been highly tested and regulated!
Before releasing their crops biotech firms get there crops checked by 3 government agencies. The Department of Agriculture decides if it is safe to grow. The EPA decides if it is safe for the environment and the FDA decides if it is safe to eat.
