Storyboard Description

The current way in which this farming industry is using GMOs in damaging to the environment and is creating food that poses health risks to the consumer. However, there are ways in which crops can be modified to have only beneficial impacts. In places where people suffer from hunger because the land is arid and the world's food distribution system has failed them, crops engineered to grow in arid climates or different soil can help fix chronic hunger issues.

  • Over 90% of all crops grown in the United States are genetically modified.
  • The exponential increase in toxic herbicides is destroying the environment.
  • GMOs pose health risks.
  • 80% of these GMOs are engineered to tolerate herbicides such as Roundup.
  • Several studies conducted around America and Spain have revealed high numbers of these toxic herbicides in fresh water sources near farms that grow food genetically engineered to tolerate these herbicides. Furthermore, the farming practices that accompany genetically modified crops significantly harm the biodiversity of the surrounding ecosystems.
  • Thus women is crying because her husband was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He contracted because he ingested too much glyphosate, the main chemical in the herbicides most crops are engineered to be tolerant to.
