Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be talking about genetically modified food and how it's good for you.
Hold up!! Genetically modified food is horrible! I don't understand why YOU think it's good!
Well, genetically modified foods are more nutritious than normal food. A gene can be modified in the food to increase or decrease a vitamin, or alter the mineral and fatty acid content found in GMO foods.
This "nutritious" food you talk about is hurting the environment. Bees are extremely endangered because they aren't pollinating properly on these plants!
Genetically modified crops also are cheaper to grow. Modified crops are sturdier and require less herbicides and pesticides which brings down the price of growing crops.
Well, these GMO foods can be allergic for some people or give them deadly diseases. According to studies, illnesses from GMO foods have doubled over the past 7 years.
GM crops can stand up to extreme weather conditions. GM crops can grow in water-limited environment and these crops can be used for no-till farming. With no-till farming we can use less fuels and less greenhouse gasses are emitted.
