Genetically Modified Organisms

By: Kevin Contreras

  • Scientists manipulate DNA

  • Ability to cross different types of foods

  • Immune to pesticides

  • “Contaminated”


Dangers

  • Scientists are not allowed to do direct research since patented

  • Antibiotic Resistance

  • Toxic Buildup

  • Loss of nutritional value

  • AAEM


GM Plants

  • Soybeans

  • Corn

  • Cotton

  • Rice

  • Cantaloupe

  • Sugar

  • Tomatoes

  • Wheat

Monsanto

  • Main GMO seed distributor

  • Refusesto be interviewed

  • Patent seeds

  • “Round Up” ready

  • Study on mice caused genetic damage


Percentage Of GM Crops Grown


Disapproval
