Are The Pros And Cons Of Genetically Modified Organisms In Our Society?

GMO’s, or genetically modified organisms, are animals that have their genes manipulated in a laboratory. These genes are changed by chemicals to bring some good effects on the people but may also bring some bad ones. There are lots of controversies and debates in society about how dangerous GMOs are even after some research was conducted and it showed that there use was safe. This paper is intended to help give information about the good and bad effects of GMO’s in society and help us make a better decision on whether this should stay in society or be eliminated. GMO’s are modified to enhance food to get better quality as well as quantity from them. Some of these types of modifications are adding antibacterial genes to plants, introducing …show more content…
One of the main concerns of GMO’s is the environmental risk that it could cause in the modern society. For example, plants that resist herbicide could spread their qualities to weeds which in long term will make them harder to kill. In this in mind this will also cause collateral damage. If you make plants that are resistant to bacteria, this will make bacteria stronger and also much harder to kill. Well another misunderstood benefit of GMO’s is actually a con. GMO’s are actually failing to yield crops. Which means it takes the same amount of time for the plants to grow and this is wasting a lot of money for no reason at all. There is also no long term testing of GMO’s and this makes a lot of people unsure that could these be trusted to the human health. So the study that shows GMOs are safe was no accurately conducted or there wasn’t enough time given on that research. One of the other major problems of GMO’s is the sickness and death of animals. Although there have been fewer diseases in animals, GMOs are causing lots of death among them. They are being fed some modified products that are killing them, and these products are also being supplied to people in local grocery stores. Another major risk of genetically modified organisms is the higher allergy risk. GMO’s are increasing the chances of allergies in people and there are causing more deaths. GMOs are causing more …show more content…
Nobody really knows much about the resources or the organizations that are releasing those information in society. However, there are lots of good causes of GMOs ha are being contradicted by bad ones. This shows that there is not enough of evidence of GMOs to be in society. Scientists should first make it fully secure and should only use it for good purposes only. One of the good purposes could be that scientists could use GMOs to find cures for diseases in the world and r to get rid of them. Besides this I personally cannot think of another reason why GMOs should be even talked about in society. they are not doing what they are “labeled” to do, causing even more deaths, are leading to more diseases, and are the people behind it are wasting a lot of money that could be used to or other good
