My final paper is on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s). I divided the paper up into three main parts: what are GMO’s, the positive contributions of GMO’s and the negative contributions of GMO’s. In the pros and cons sections I further divided them between the health and environmental consequences of using GMO’s. GMO’s provide health benefits such as enriching foods with vitamins that would naturally not be found in them, allowing people with scarce resources to have access to vitamins that they wouldn’t normally. However, they pose health risks that I explain in detail as well as environmental degradation/ pollution. At the end I added a section on the dependency of the farmers on the manufacturing companies the produce GMO’s. The same companies that produce GMOs are the produces of herbicides and pesticides that are needed to maintain such crops. This has created a cycle of dependency that is making the companies gain major profits while the farmers have no others choice but to pay the prices that the companies impose.I also briefly mentioned the ethical concerns that come with GMO’s. Whenever the topic of genetics comes into a conversation many heated debates are set forward. Altering genes to express a desired trait and combining genes from bacteria/viruses/ animals with plants that are then consumed on a regular basis is definitely a topic of concern. Changing topics, in high school I took an environmental class and it helped me a lot. I already knew a little about GMOs as well as different styles of farming which was important in understanding what they were referring to in the different sources that I used. The most important source of information has been studies that have been done with GMO’s and case studies that exemplify what GMO’s can do. The problem with finding sources what that they were bias, whether it is was in favor or against, so I had to separate opinion with facts.
