What do farmers think of GMOs? A farmer from Arizona says that GMO crops are a tool for sustainable farming. If there wasn’t GMO crops the cotton farmers in Arizona would not be able to survive. The reason being is that pest were destroying so many crops that farmers were not able to survive. GMO cotton main point of impact is pest resistant. Not only do GMO crops help fight off insects, but also help with weed control, and make farming a triable business. A farmer from Canada notes that farmers care about the environments safety and people's health and that they take the situation very seriously. “As a farmer I would not produce anything that I am not willing to serve my own family.” says Jay
What does the FDA think of GMOs? The FDA treats GM crops just like any other product that they have to inspect. They make sure the GM crops meet the same safety standard as traditional crops. The FDA regulates GM crops just like any other type of product. So considering we are eating GMO made products not only can we assume that they are safe but the FDA deems them safe to eat. The FDA goes through a safety assessment to determine whether or not the new product is safe to eat or not. Cotton corn and soybeans are the most common type of GM crops that are grown.
What do people that think GMOs are not safe think? Some people don’t like GMO because it's not a naturally way to breed a plant. When you inject a gene into a crop you are taking mother nature's way of reproducing out of the equation. Their main concern is health and safety of other people. They don’t think it is safe just because it is genetically engineered.
My opinion on this topic. I really think that GMO are safe. Simply because the FDA and scientists say it is safe. If people spend hours on testing and research and these products are on the store shelves, it has to be safe. Companies wouldn’t be able to sell anything if it wasn’t safe for human consumption. So if people don’t believe that GMOs are safe they just need to realize that many people have been eating GMO products for years and nothing bad has really happened. In conclusion I believe that GMOs are safe.
