Should Genetically Modified Foods Be Sold in Groceries?

Good (—) to one and all present here. My name is (—) and I am here today to address whether or not genetically modified foods should be sold in groceries. According to the World Health Organisation, “Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as organisms (such as plants, animals or microorganisms) in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination.

Presently, a company named Monsanto holds the patent to all genetically modified organisms. They have major corporate control over who they sell the GMO to, where they use it and how it is produced. The Institute for Responsible Technology reports that “Genetically modified foods have been linked to toxic and allergic reactions, sick, sterile and dead livestock, and damage to virtually every organ studied in lab animals.”

Genetically modified foods became an outsized part of the food industry because they are engineered to own a much better period, resistant to climate and pests, and produce the biggest, tastiest products. They’re advantageous to both the farmers and the consumers thanks to their cost efficiency and skill to grow easily and often with less environmental damage. Gene-splicing has been in use for about 20 years now.

Genetically modified foods pose danger to the health of people and should be avoided. The first step towards solving the issue of GMO foods is by raising awareness among people. This solution would offer people the data that the FDA is hiding. Potential toxins, including allergens, are things that the consumers have a right to know about, so making them aware is the very first thing that has to happen. As in any industry that sells a product, the consumers control what the manufacturers implement for maximum sales. 

Advertising is affordable, accessible, and sustainable, especially with the availability of social media platforms and folks who are passionate and advocate for the cause. Advertising could be a very low-cost solution for any problem today due to the many media outlets that may be reached. Hashtags, built-in ads, and old-fashioned posters are simple, facile, cheap, and efficacious. Advertising is an accessible solution because it’s visual and might be viewed by anyone.

Placing promotions publicly places or on public media, especially grocery stores, can have an immediate effect on people’s awareness and choices after they see it. Raised awareness will reduce the quantity of toxic residue within the environment they are grown in. Due to the alterations in their DNA, genetically engineered plants release toxins rather than necessary nutrients into the soil which kills the soil bacteria and affects the health of all the opposite organisms that depend on the soil and environment, like other plants, insects, and fungus.

Reduce risks for potential health-related problems in people and animals who eat GMO foods thanks to lower demand and use of GMOs in food products. Possible health issues that might result from long-term consumption of GMO foods include allergies, sterility, and organ damage. Thank you and have a good day.
