Can GMO’s help our hunger problem?



  1. 0 Votes

    On one hand, GM foods are better than no food at all for starving peoples. One problem with GMOs helping world hunger is that growing them is not always sustainable. GM foods could be grown large quickly. However, modifying the natural course of plants, i.e. making genetic changes that would otherwise take years and years to occur, runs the chance of destroying biodiversity, or an assortment of crops. Also, GMOs have a mechanism that produces sterile seeds, preventing cross pollination and thus the spread of trademarked crops. This means farmers have to buy new seeds every year, putting a strain on them. GMOs could help the starving, but could hurt farmers who grow them in the first place. It seems that no matter what choice is made, something is being harmed.
