Should the UN ban companies from GMO'ing their livestock to make a larger profit?

No, I don't believe so. Sure GMOs are certainly worse for you health-wise yet, There are still so many benefits that come from producing and or consuming GMO animals. I believe that with GMOs, The planet in its entirety will slowly start to move towards ending world hunger or nutritional deficiencies, No matter if its a plant or animal. If you really think about it having certain animal which a) can withstand certain condition or B) produce more food, Will increase food supply in almost an area of the globe.

Alright but since GMO's are relatively new, Won't the cost of that food be higher in price than organic food?

Really, GMO product meat or not can actually benefit the economy. GMOs typically cost significantly less than organic products hence making food cost go down. Aside from that, If certain product posses qualities that can increase their shelf life. It also could reduce of the amount of food that needs to be produce.

Ok, But won't the animals you are modifying suffer in any way? You are changing their genetic makeup so shouldn't that harm them physically at all?

Alright you got me there but, The original question stated if it should be illegal to ban companies from genetically modifying their livestock. GMO does not necessarily have to have to be for producing food. In which there is and yes animals do suffer. But GMO could also consist of gene edits that prevents said organism from obtaining an deadly diseases or prevent them from getting any genetic defects as well could remove the risk of the animal inheriting an problems that may affect their life

We've been editing the genes in both animals and plants for thousands of years just not to the great speed we can change them now.
