Transcript of GM FOOD
Allergies have increased a lot in the past decade because of the use of different chemicals and the modification of the genes
Genetically modified foods are foods containing genes that have been altered or exchanged. The transferring of a gene or a trait, such as beta carotene, to rice to give it a golden colour is modifying the rice. Against or for the use of GM foods, has been a worldwide argument for decades, since the more research is done, the more advantages and disadvantages are discovered. Genetically modified foods can cause harm according to human health, ethical and moral concerns and ecological risk.
Before the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) allowed GMs into food without labeling, FDA scientists had repeatedly warned that GM foods could create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. They urged long-term safety studies, but were ignored.

Why we shouldn't have GM Food!
A genetically modified food can cause an allergic reaction when it did not before it was modified, since transferring a transgene to a food product may alter the product creating an allergen.
The resulting GM foods have undergone little rigorous and no long-term safety testing. However, animal feeding tests have shown that GM foods have toxic effects, including abnormal changes in organs, immune system disturbances, non-stop ageing, and changes in gene expression.
