Genetically modified foods: Do GM crops help the poor and third-world?

  • GM crops does help the poor and third-world.

    GM crops does help the poor and third-world. We are able to produce more of the same crop through genetically modified crops without the use of as many pesticides. When it is cheaper on the farmer to be able to grow then it is cheaper on the public to buy these items.

  • Yes, GMOs could eventually help the poor and Third World countries.

    We aren't sure yet what will happen with GMOs. However, right now it seems a lot of the time crops are modified to be resistant to pests, so that they will grow without needing to use pesticides. If this happens and happens successfully, then it would make growing crops easier and less expensive. However, there are downsides to GMOs, too, since it's difficult to know, since they aren't naturally occurring, if they're healthy or will negatively impact the environment.

  • Yes, they do

    The technology that GMOs can provide enables certain strands of vegetables to grow in areas that they previously cannot, they can combat poverty literally just by existing. Some would like you to believe they're the scariest thing scientists have ever come up with, but in reality they are not without merit.

  • GM crops help the poor and third-world.

    It is clear that the Green Revolution was beneficial for poor counties that could not produce enough food. Because Genetically Modified crops are more resistant to drought and disease, they can grow in poorer conditions. GM crops have saved over a billion lives, and their creator won the Nobel Peace Prize.

  • Genetically Modified Crops Good for Third-World Countries

    Without a doubt, genetically modified crops are good for third-world countries. They're resistant to environmental threats and yield larger produce than normal crops. Their safety has been debated in recent years, but they would undoubtedly help developing countries. Therefore, they have a great use for the third-world countries at this point.

  • Growing GM crops is the best way to attack world hunger

    Traditionally grown crops (which, despite being genetically engineered through years of human-guided agriculture, are not considered GM) are unable to support the world's population in the long term. Due to a variety of factors, such as inability to grow in certain climates (especially in the third-world), susceptibility to pests, perish times, and crop yield, not to mention expanding population, traditional crops cannot meet the requirements of those in need. Genetically engineering crops that can reliably grow in harsher weather conditions, repel pests, resist spoilage for longer, and even have greater nutritional value, will be a great aid to the developing world.

  • Genetically modified food helps feed the masses

    Genetically modified food is not necessarily a bad thing. It is probably bad in that companies like Monsanto should not be aloud to patent a gene and then sue a farmer for GMO seeds pollinating in their field. The food itself though has not shown to be bad for humans. Humans have been cross breeding plants for thousands of years for the purpose of higher yield and disease resistance. If we were to say switch to all organic foods, organic farming could only feed 3/4 of the worlds population, and it would take all the available farming land in the world to achieve. There should be more testing on these GMO products, but I don't think they are necessarily bad. They benefit the poor and third-world by bringing down the prices of food by producing more per acre.

  • Na it doesn'y

    Coz i said so and i do not fink that it dus bcoz its just weird and they inject mad plants with steroids to make them hink er hard like what are they hinking. Tbh i hink theyre doing it to kill us, stop it the noo while ye can mate!!
