Nutritional Guest Speech Sample

Decent Essays
Nutritional Guest Speaker In American, currently and a few other countries that have a decent economic system is currently battling an epidemic. This epidemic is spreading like a weed and there is no controlling it. All of it starts with a seed from company who is paying lobbyists and federal candidates off named, Monsanto. This company has a patent on seeds that have been genetically modified with herbicides and pesticides. One of the corn seed this company sells is Roundup ready. Meaning it has been modified with the Roundup weed killer. As the corn grows, it will act as a weed killer and kill the surrounding weeds. No matter what the EPA says, this seed still can’t be health. In Haiti, most of the people don’t even have electricity or running water, but they do know about GMO’s and how horrible Monsanto’s seed is …show more content…
In smaller communities, that don’t have the means to import any of its goods are getting their food directly from their community. In these small communities everyone is pulling their weight together to get the needed necessities for all to survive. Even though, most of these families live in poverty, they have the access to the freshest foods possible. Many third world countries have better and fresher produce than technological advance countries like ours. There are countries like Norway and New Zealand that have completely banned GMO’s while many American’s don’t even know what a GMO is. Vladimir did mention while he lived in New Zealand that the government makes a big deal about preserving the country and they question everything that is being brought into the country. Sadly, the United States won’t ever be that strict about imports or GMO’s. It is all about how the government can make money off the sick. The easiest way to control ones’ health is by controlling what food is

    Bt. will not harm other insects it will only kill the insects that feed directly on that particular plant. For in-stance the potatoes plant has a common enemy the blight, this infection demolishes around 15 percent of the globes farming crop yearly, even though fungicide has been used on these potatoes this infection strike the potatoes right before picking season, destroying around one fifth of the potatoes plants. So GMO supporter are encouraging Blight resistance potatoes they believe that this product could be one of earths initial main food source. Genetically altered to include protec-tion against plant disease, there are some particular plants that are cultivate in china and India that has a disease known as Stem rust, and a fungal disease of wheat, that has proliferated through most of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula that is now threatening parts of central and south Asia, bananas, are a main food supply in Uganda, are mostly ruined by wilt disease.…

    Another point that genetic engineering is disastrous is because mega corporations are in control of them. Biotech companies like Monsanto and Du Pont are not running for helping the general public, but they are there to only mass produce genetically modified crops spray with herbicides and sell them in order to make a profit. In their case, there is no need to think to the lives of people today and in future generations. Although, many people-advocates, the U.S. government, and biotech companies- are saying otherwise and that genetically modified organisms is what the population needs. These individuals and larger groups might say that they have done their…

    Smith backs up his claim by stating that a lot of safety studies have been conducted to check for health risks posed by GMOs are rather dismissed when the results show significant findings. Morever, Smith states that no one monitors the health effects of GM foods and most people have little awareness over the fact that they consume GM foods almost daily. Furthermore, he argues that allergies and toxins have increased since GM foods were firstly introduced into the market. Also, he asserts that some genes are inserted into the crops that are antibiotic resistant or that created a certain protein that is not found in our bodies, thus, imposing more…

    Ric Bessin, Extension Entomologist researched and found that “While the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) regulates genetically modified foods, it considers Bt-corn to be nutritionally equivalent to traditional corn” (Bessin). Most GMO crops are corn and are known as the six major GMO crops which include soy, alfalfa, canola, cotton, sugar, and beets. According to The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) they “[urges] physicians to advise all patients to avoid genetically modified (GM) food” (“Genetically”). Therefore, many people think that the FDA is not protecting the American people. Their own scientists warned people of possible toxins, possible allergies,…

    People that normally would not be allergic to the non GM food could be allergic to the genetically modified version because scientists insert genes from other organisms. The new gene in a crop like soy, produces a new protein that has never existed before. Since the farmers can spay more herbicide on GM crops, the increase in the chemical residues could cause health problems. “The only definitive test for allergies,” according to former FDA microbiologist Louis Pribyl, “is human consumption by affected peoples, which can have ethical considerations.” Do we really want to be the testers of the safety of GM food without knowing if we are even eating it. The UK is one of the few countries that does annual evaluations of food allergies.…

    Once this happens, it can’t be reversed. Genetic pollution can lead to negative effects on the environment, and on the farmers’ lives. In a study done about Starlink, which is a leading corn producer, genetic pollution is a big problem. Released by an Independent Science Panel study in The Case for a GM-Free Sustainable World, “High levels of contamination have since been found in Canada. In a test of 33 certified seed stocks, 32 were found contaminated” (Ching, 5).…

    He published a book called “Undeniable” that contained a chapter about genetically modified organisms. In that chapter he claimed that there is something ¨fundamentally problematic¨ with consumers eating foods containing modified crops. Though he was a non-GMO supporter, that fact does not ring true today. Nye recently visited Monsanto, a leading company that produces GMO seed. After his visit he did a one eighty and is showing support for modified crops.…

    E. Coli has been a trending disease and that is because a lot of manufactures assemble their products with corn. They had found that corn has been positive for E. Coli yet, it is part of the diet that the animals within their factory farms are eating. It is amazing that even if the animals are positive for E. Coli they still use them for food. Due to the negligence of these factories, E. Coli has spread to the consumers and resulting in the death of a young child named Kevin. His…

    Even though monarch caterpillars didn’t eat corn specifically, the pollen from the corn blew onto milkweed plants they do eat (Whitman, 2000). Another potential problem is the reduced effectiveness of pesticides. People are concerned that insects will become resistant to Bt or other GMF’s just as some mosquitoes have developed resistance to DDT (Whitman, 2000). Another environmental concern is that crop plants engineered for herbicide tolerance and weeds might cross-breed and make a “superweed” (20 Questions on genetically modified goods, 2009). These weeds would then be herbicide tolerant and therefore much harder to kill.…

    “Monsanto has created GMO crops that contain something known as BT, which is a toxin incorporated into the crops with the intention of killing off insects. However, has actually led to ‘mutant’ insect populations which are directly resistant to the bio pesticide. Reports state that at least 8 insect populations have developed resistance. As a result, farmers must spray even more pesticides!” Thirdly, the pollen from genetically modified crops will kill butterfly larvae or harm to honeybee, there are two main bad results about that---other crops and plants may lose the tool of pollination, and they will be pollution by the pollen from genetically modified crops and…
