Although many people are opposed to the idea of GMO's, I think it is a great way to sustain the growing population that has an increased need for more food. GMO's are able to help grow food faster and the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine have said themselves in their conclusion that "It is critical that investment in solutions involving genetic engineering".

GMO's have also been proven to be completely safe by science too. Although pesticides do kill other insects, it does not affect us due to a difference in our bodily systems. We can simply excrete the pesticide, while the insect cannot. Pesticides are currently being designed to be as non-harmful to the human as much as possible, which means that they can be of great use in preventing diseases and infections to be spread through food.

Again, pesticides do not harm or kill anyone other than the insects. An Agricultural Health Study also proves this by saying that there is no direct link between pesticides and cancer.
