Genetically Modified Organism (GMO’s) were once seen as the answer to the big problem of pesticide use and famine due to failed crops. However after time has passed it has become apparent that GMO’s are causing more harm than good. For example GMO’s are thought to be responsible for the reduced number of honey bees which is directly impacting crop yields.
- Not only have GMO crops failed to deliver on every one of their earlier promises, but they are also slowly killing our world and its inhabitants.
- The main problem is that the Roundup herbicide that GMO crops have been engineered to withstand has been found to have a number of serious health risks, prompting the World Health Organization to label it a “probable carcinogen.”
- GM crops have also been responsible for mass die-offs of beneficial insects like bees and monarch butterflies.
“It’s becoming increasingly clear that GMO crops are far from a dream come true for a hungry population.”
