Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Dangers of GMO Products Our Damged Environment GMOs with built in pesticides may seemadvantageous, but there is a nasty truthbehind it. The truth is, if the GMOs havebuilt in pesticides, that causes superpestsand superweeds to evolve. Eventually,even stronger chemicals will have to becreated and used to destroy the superpestsand weeds. This would eventually leadto Earth being barren, without a greenplant in sight. Pollinating insects are crucial inspreading and increasing vegetation.Many beneficial pollinating insects have been affected by GMO pollen. A study found out that GMO pollen is hazardous to Monarch butterflies (Cummins). Also, other species of beneficial insects have been found to be affected as well. If these insects are killed, there will be no vegetation. If we do not have vegetables and fruits, our bodies will become malnourished. We cannot survive off of meat alone, either. ** All my works cited are in my paper By Anna Jang Mrs. Roskos4th Period Poison to Our Bodies Source(s) Used:Cummins, Ronnie.

In 1989, a GE brand of a common dietary supplement killed 37 Americans. A lot of other people were either permanently disabled or stricken with a fatal blood disease. Ronnie Cummins, the founder of an organic food consumption organization agrees that GMOs have the potential to be harmful. In her research she found out that in 1996, a major food disaster was avioded. Brazil nut genes combined with soybeans were found to be fatal in people who were sensitive to Brazil nuts. This could have caused thousands of people to die or be harmed. It has also been found out that GMOs could cause our bodies to become resistant to antibiotics. This is a risk we can't take because antibiotics are what treats us when we are ill or hurt. Putting human lives in front of science is very important, and GMOs are definitely messing with our bodies as well. Endangerment Gregor Mendel discovered genetics through pea experiments in the years, 1856-1863 Scientists begin experimenting with genes to try and improve organisms. Genetically modified orgainisms (GMOs) were created
