Transcript of GM Foods

For the GMO
Possible Cures?
Studies shown that splicing certain DNA strands into fruits and vegetables can offer cures
The Problem:

Against GMO Foods
Conclusion
In my opinion, GMO should be banned. I don't care if they cure cancer. They is too much at risk for GMO's to be on the market

For Better or Worse?

Taste and Shelf Life
Increased Vitamins

Allows less food to be eaten to meet nutritional requirements

Are they truly bad? Is their a positive side to GMO's?
What is the negative part of GMO?
Should GMO be banned?
Environmental Damage
Transfer of Qualities
Bees pollinate
Animals eat plants
Weeds suck nutrients
Transfer of Modified Genes to new plants
New Super Plant
New Super Weed
Kills animals
Cross-breeding
New Bacteria
Unexpected Evolution
Only Theoretically Good?
No long term research has been done
GMO temper with the genetics of a NATURAL substance
All plants make seeds, natural and GMO alike.

----------------------->
Certain vaccines/treatments require special containers. Researchers working on using GMO as containers
Cleaning Up
Some GMO's are not crops at all
Researchers are working on organisms that hasten the cleaning of the soil from harmful nutrients, or
Bioremediation
...And this is the beginning.....
....What else could happen....
