What are the pros and cons of GMO foods ?

Scientists have tried to develop better foods which is strong against climate change or insects and at the same time, nutritious. These kinds of great foods had been expected for a long time. Recent scientific development made it possible for this to be true. That is GMO foods. GMO means genetically modified organisms. Though this sounds fantastic invention, it has been worried because of its potential influence on human body. Some may believe GMO foods are great and healthy , others may claim the opposite.

Cons : we should not use GMO foods because it is harmful for both human body and ecosystem.

We should not use GMO foods for three reasons. First, it is harmful for human body. It is hard to deny the danger of taking GMO foods into the human body. Recent research shows the experiment using rats. Some unnatural symptoms are recognized on rats’ body; unnatural stains like skin cancer and swellings. It suggests similar symptoms would appear when the human body take this. Also, if we stop eating GMO foods, it might be difficult to avoid taking it completely because GMO foods would be used to raise livestock such as cattle and sheep. Second, it is harmful for nature. GMO foods is strong against diseases and apt to survive compared to non-modified species. This means the GMO species would survive while the local breed would die. This would potentially harm the whole ecosystem.

Pros: we should use GMO foods because it will bring some global and economic benefits.

We should use GMO foods for three reasons. First, about the danger, it has been said that no specific proof of bad influence on human body is validated. Numbers of experiments has been carried out so far and no serious results are shown.  Second, GMO foods would bring an end to the global food crisis. GMO foods need shorter time to inherit desirable traits (tolerance toward insects and herbicides) compared to species improvement as in the past. This means we can speed up the flow of food and bring it to the place in need.  Third, the quality of GMO foods is better than non-GMO foods. For example, in the US, GMO tomato is now on sale, which provides better taste. The flavor and taste had been once lost during transportation from a tomato growing district to local supermarkets. New GMO technology enables this tomato to be kept fresh by controlling its period of ripeness. We can see these examples rather than tomatoes. In conclusion, it is advised that we have GMO foods in our daily life.
