Genetically Modified Organisms
Unnatural, and ruining our earth one crop at a time!
GM food poses health risks for certain people
Another hazard Gm food's posses is the possibility of the bacteria in out guts could pick up antibiotic resistance genes commonly found in may Gm products. If this transfer is successful it could exasperate the spread of disease causing bacteria.
GM crop technology will hurt small farms!
Also with GM plants there is more chance for economic downfall. Such as the quinoa, America was going to start mass producing this, causing Bolivian farmers who normally supply quinoa to face a severe blow. But, luckily, due to protests this patent was not passed. GM crops will also eliminate the uniqueness of each farm and there location, climate, and environmental conditions. Causing small farms to loose whatever uniqueness and importance they had.
GMO's harm the environment!
GM crops claim to be herbicides, when Canadian researchers admitted that GM crop are weeds themselves. But not only are they a problem themselves, they can create a whole other problem. People are worried that virus's will snatch resistance traits from GM crops. Causing them to evolve into a whole new problem, a serious problem.
GMO's go against nature, and is unnatural!
Inserted unrelated regions, is against many peoples religion and beliefs. It not only insert unwanted genes in food, but also the doubt in peoples mind when they are eating a tomato that it is highly possible it contains a pigs gene. This act is completely unhumanitarian.
Bio-tech companies are profit driven and are oblivious to the risks to nature and people!
GM food suffers from poor oversight and regulation
Another issue is with the GM food's security. All food that is possibly GM is not labeled, therefore the consumer is completely unaware of the hazards they are eating. This is security for bio-tech farms because if someone gets sick due to these fake genes, it cannot be traced back to GMO.
