Genetically Modified Organisms
Healthful or harmful, the production of genetically modified organisms will increase as does our population. There are many incredible advantages to GMOs, namely the mass production of food and insecticide and pesticide resistant crops. Both in the lab and in the field, these advantageous qualities of GMOs provide for a hopeful future of sustainable life. Unfortunately, many investigative parties have found that the extent in which GMO producers predict possibilities is an utter hyperbole. The marketed enhanced traits, including drought resistance, health benefits, and increased production, are inaccurate and grossly exaggerated. In addition to misleading marketing tactics, GMO manufacturing companies do not correctly label their products and their contents. Recently, more and more evidence has been found relating the consumption of GMOs and the development of health problems.
