Are GMO Foods Better than Organic Foods
When we talk about GMO a lot of people might think that GMO(genetic modified organism) is used in animal or human, but today I will talk about the use of GMO on the plant. A lot of people think that GMO is not safe for eat because you are changing a DNA/gene of the plant and our body might not recognize the food that we had eaten. Another group of people refuses to buy GMO labeled foods. This cost a significant effect on the American economy because most companies in America who export foods are those who grow GMO foods. After, all the people who lived in the country where the goods are sent will refuse to buy it. Still, all these can be avoided by teaching people what GMO is and why GMO is safe to our body.
Not only teaching people what GMO will help people to buy GMO foods, but we also need to tell them why GMO is the same as organic or even better than organic. The study in Italy shows that GMO is helping farmers have better yield, and when they grow all these crops, the will not use as much as pesticides than when they grow organic foods. On the other hand, we know that when we eat something, we are trying to get the nutritional value of the food and any foods will contain it. At this point, a lot of people will argue that most markets have a higher price on organic foods than GMO based on research by the US today. To all this person I want to tell them no study shows GMO is not safe to eat. All the market just using people’s fixed thinking to make more profit. On the other hand, when we buy GMO food, we are pushing US economy and making farmers making more money and having a better life.
Not only helping to save you on money, but GMO foods also have better taste and will help farmers earn more money as well. According to an American expert who works for a biotechnology company claim when we plant GMO foods we are making it better for our body, and it will have a better taste. Another source by America Today.com states that 95% of the nation’s sugar beets, 94% of the soybeans, 90% of the cotton and 88% of the feed corn are GMO in the US. I know there is still percent of the stuff that not grow in GMO form, and this small percent will be sold as organic foods, but there are reasons to follow the majority rules. Another group of people could point out that when all the biotechnology company has control of our crops, where all the farmers who grow organic foods will go. All biotechnology need people who use their technology to grow food in the field. All the farmers who lost their job can work for the company, and they will have a higher paying job which was researched by a biotechnology company in the US. On the other hand, people who work for a company often have higher pay than people who work for them self, and they will have better welfare.
In conclusion, we know that eating GMO foods will help our society have a better economy and will help people who grow crops have better pay. When you eat GMO foods you will have better nutritional value and the food you eat could have better taste. Another reason is you don’t want all the supermarket owner starting to earn more money from your fixed thinking. Start today; you should at least try out GMO foods when you have a chance. Don’t avoid buying GMO because GMO gives you better taste when you make your meal and it gives you better nutrition value.
