For my informative paper I will be writing about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s). Over the past few years organic products have been increasing in popularity. People are trying to go back to the old way of farming, when food kept its true nature. Genetically modified organisms have been used to produce a higher amount of a product and for that product to grow in less time for profits to increase. Most of our produce is imported from other countries and in order for them to have bigger and better crops they genetically alternate the DNA of the crop for the crop to be better “quality”. Some GMO’s have become immune to its natural predators while others have been enriched with nutrients and vitamins to improve human health. The problem with this new form of farming is that because it is so new there is not enough information gathered to know what these foods can cause to the human body. Many say that there is a link between GMO’s and the increase in cancer over the past few years. Others have pointed to the increase in human health in cases where people were not receiving adequate nutrients and were becoming ill and thanks to GMO’s people are starting to get those nutrients necessary for life. I chose this topic because going into the health care field I want to be educated as to what is out there. Genetics is a topic that is have been increasing over the years and the more information about it I know the more beneficial it will be in the long run. I also would like to know more about this topic because it is something that I am personally consuming, yet know very little about. I like to know that I am putting into my body since it will directly affect me in the future. Whether the effect will be positively or negatively I don’t know but at least I’ll have remote idea as to what it is that I am consuming. In class I would like to see possible outlines to see how I should do my paper. I am very big on knowing where to go otherwise I’m just wondering all over the place with no focus or cohesion.
