GM food: for and against

Nowadays a problem of genetically modified food is widespread all over the world. GM foods
are genetically modified using biotechnology. GM foods are designed for greater resistance to viruses and
pests, higher nutritional value and longer shelf life. However, their safety, potential risks and ethical
concerns are still being debated. So, should genetically modified crops be for or not?

First of all i will look at facts who is against GM. First argument for GM foods is that it badly
affects our health and well-being. Some studies have linked consumptions of GM foods to liver and kidney
problems. The antibiotics and hormones given to cows and chickens are found in our bodies and we don’t
know yet the extent to which these cause chronic disease.

On the other hand GM products along with disadvantages have their benefits too. A lot of
people believe that genetically modified foods can help to solve the food crisis in future, and so help
humanity to survive.

In my opinion, of course, this is a huge industry nowadays that obviously can’t be stopped,
but I believe that there are other ways to save people from hunger.
