  • Because they IMPORTANT!

    Also, even if we cannot use GMOs for a food source, we can still use them for other things: Genetically modified flowers, such as the Blue Rose, will probably become increasingly popular. With GMOs, we can make plants that produce more of certain things, so we have to harvest less plants, to get what we need: Imagine if the cure to cancer was a little plant, but it was hard to grow, and only cured one person with each plant. We could genetically modify it to produce enough chemicals to cure a dozen people.

  • Yes because ...

    GMO crops should be used IF they are safe to the human, no problems should occur when consuming GMO's could help kids in poverty because we would make much more food and the economy would go up. If GMO's are not safe, they should be contaminated immediately and never used.

  • GMO Crops would solve many current issues

    GMO crops have the potential to solve many economic and social problems of today. These include the prevailing issue of food scarcity that will in the future present a big problem in a world with a rapidly rising population.

    In terms of economic value, GMO crops would produce harvests that could last longer than traditionally grown crops, reducing the wastage of out of date food. Moreover, the yields could be multiplied many times over than what is currently being produced, and in a shorter amount of time.

    To countermand the arguments against GMO crops, because the technology has not been around for a long time, it cannot be proved that they cause any negative side effects in terms of health in the long term. Whether or not they cause any long term issues is yet to be discovered, however at the moment they provide an excellent source of solutions for many current issues.

  • I Say YES!

    GMO’s are More Efficient: GMO’s are genetically modified organisms. These seeds can be modified to use water more efficiently or better fight pests including weeds, bugs, and animals. This will require less work to grow and less farmland. This also promotes no till farming. This keeps moisture in the soil and also reduces the carbon used. Less fuel is needed to water the crops and it will keep more carbon in the ground.
    It’s Not Like GMO’s Began Yesterday: Farmers have been modifying seed for about 20 years but even before that, it’s been going on for centuries, it’s just being advanced. Nothing has changed, really. Scientists are even modifying it today, trying to improve it so it can help fight crop diseases!
    GM Food is Among the Most Tested Products: In the U.S., GMO food products are harshly tested before they can be sold. Testing includes things like nutritional analysis, protein analysis, and characterization. A study of more than 1,700 peer reviews found no evidence that GMO’s are the cause of claimed health issues: although some admit it might be possible, it’s not likely.

  • GMOs help us get more harvest every year.

    According to the The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nation, GMOs have let us grow more crops in less area, as well as an earlier output of crops than usual. This can increase the amount of profit farmers gain as well as less people in famine and poverty, and this could make us able to become a more powerful nation. The more food, the better (as long as you don't waste it).

  • Gmo crops make larger amounts of food for less amounts of land

    Gmo can be used to help provide more food for a larger group of people. Despite popular belief, gmo does not keep the usa from starvation. However, it does help to create more food, which is a good thing #morefoodisbetter. Some people, however, can be sensitive to gmo, so not all farmers should use genetically modified crops

  • Yassssssssssssssssssssss of course yasss

    Yes yes because it can makes u healthier its cheaper its ,it has better flavor. More food to end hunger.

  • Do your research !!

    Watch the documentary called "Seeds of Death." GMO's are the main cause of cancer in the United States! There are so many side effects of GMO's that major corporations such as Monsato keeps hidden. GMO's are terrible for the environment and terrible for the cells in your own body ( explained further in the documentary )

  • GMO crops support bad agricultural practices

    The most grievous cost of GMOs is to the ecosystem. GMOs support unsustainable use of land, water and fertilizer resources. They support destruction of ecosystems, replaced by widening stretches of monoculture. They promote the use of pesticides, herbicides and antibiotics, which are harmful to the ecosystem both directly and indirectly. They are not only toxic, but they throw delicate ecological systems out of balance and select for resistant strains of their respective targets.

    GMOs are (in my opinion) not inherently bad, and the power of GM technologies could be used for good applications, but given how little we collectively know about the effects of GMOs and how little our leaders care about long-term environmental effects in the face of short-term financial gain, the time is not yet ripe to use GMOs on a global scale.

  • Genes and job loss

    GMO products are taking jobs away from people such as farmers. They are also not good because they aren't naturally grown. They are sprayed with chemicals to keep bugs and pests away. They are also not even the same food because they have genetics and DNA from other foods and they are a mix between other foods

  • GMO's are not feeding the world and are NOT proven safe by unbiased science.

    GMO's are not feeding the world. Over 97% of GM corn goes into the ethanol division, and even less of the remaining 3% hits the store in cob form, rather, some kind of filler for processed food, which we all know isn't healthy. 3rd world countries don't eat the cotton the produce and, in fact, can't graze their animals in the fields anymore after harvest because they DIE after consuming the BT cotton.

    In addition, the science on which this is based is BIASED science. ALL positive reviews that say Genetically Modified Organisms are safe to consume have a former Biotech and/or Big Ag rep on their board of members. Unbiased studies, most notably the Seralini studies, show incredible damage to the beings that consume these products. Health Canada 'trusts' the studies from Biotech and HAS NOT DONE THEIR OWN. The FDA and USDA never APPROVED these products. They released a letter absolving themselves of any liability should any damage occur and didn't say 'no' -- LOOK IT UP.

    Above and beyond that, the chemicals that are sprayed on these crops are doing incredible, unprecedented and unhindered damage to the environment. People, we only have one planet. They have created super weeds, super bugs, antibiotic resistant strains of ecoli and botulism and have depleted the soil and our food of critical, life sustaining nutrients. The answer to the uncontrolled weeds that are now herbicide resistant? AGENT ORANGE. We can all agree Agent Orange doesn't belong ON people let alone in them, or has enough of the generation that witnessed the damage and high suicide rates of people who were sprayed with agent orange died off?

    STOP blindly trusting the agencies and corporations whos very goal it is to make money. Open your eyes and do your OWN research and then research your research. Know where the studies and findings come from, whos on the board, what their history is and their correlation to the industry that's funding them.

    In some states, forcing corn into fish violates several laws and angers animal rights activists and yet they do it every day for their round up ready corn and their frankenfish.

  • People have lived just fine in the past

    Using GMO food only presents health issues. Mother nature knows whats best, and altering what's been created can only do harm.

    1. Thousands of sheep, buffalo, and goats in India died after grazing on Bt cotton plants.
    2. Mice eating GM corn for the long term had fewer, and smaller, babies.

    Is it worth it?

  • GE Moratorium requested.

    The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that "GM foods pose a serious health risk" and called for a moratorium on GM foods. Citing several animal studies, the AAEM concluded "there is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects" and that "GM foods pose a serious health risk in the areas of toxicology, allergy and immune function, reproductive health, and metabolic, physiologic and genetic health."

  • Are the GMO's worth it?

    The GMO's are filled with chemicals and it just isn't natural to have chemicals entering our body all the time. Also some vegetables like tomatoes have fish DNA in them to keep them from shriveling or freezing. I don't know about you but I don't think it is worth eating fish DNA just to have a perfect tomato.
