Should the sale of genetically modified food be banned?
Genetically modified food endangers the health of people who consume it.
Genetically modified crops have been linked to weight gain. Because the crops are
bred for higher yields, they contain fewer nutrients
and require higher levels of consumption to produce nutritional benefits.
Globally the use of glyphosate has dramatically increased since the introduction of GM glyphosate-tolerant crops. Glyphosate has been identified as a cause for concern since it can be linked to many health
show that GM foods can be toxic, allergenic, or have unintended nutritional changes.
The increased use of genetically modified food may result in increased
Genetically modified crops can be
therefore making them more beneficial sources of food.
There is nothing inherent to genetic modification that makes food dangerous.
Genetically modified food is subjected to
more rigorous safety checks
than its conventional counterpart.
There is no scientific evidence that all genetically modified animals/crops pose health risks for humans. They should be tested on a case by case basis.
This is simply
. Experts from the American Medical Association, the National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the World Health Organization, and 90% of scientists believe that GMOs are perfectly safe to consume.
