Although pesticides are meant to kill pest, why would you like to eat something that has the amount of poison to kill many insects? Wouldn’t you feel weird to eat something that contains that chemical that was able to kill millions of insect from infesting the fruit or vegetable? But we could try find other ways to prevent the use of chemical pesticides. We can think that GMOs can help in this situation, since scientists and biotechnicians are now trying create and develop food that are already pest free.
