The GMO Controversy Continues

How GMOs Are Affecting the Environment

By Joan Elliott
Posted: 3/27/2015

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - How GMOs affect our environment is a hotly contested issue. One side claims that the biodiversity of GMO protect our environment by using less pesticide and herbicide, and reduce the acreage needed to provide similar crop production. The other side claims that because of GMO, “nature” is creating super weeds and resistant bugs thereby increasing the amount of herbicides and pesticides and reducing the yield causing more habitat destruction and contamination.

Initially the intent of the GMO crop seemed to be a good one, providing more with less. However, time has shown, that is not the case and nations around the world are rejecting the use of GMO crops due to the contamination of and the destruction of native plants and insects. The United States seems to be the hold out, supporting further production of new GM species to counteract the negative aspects of the old - very similar to the pharmaceutical companies producing more new drugs to counter act the side effects of the current new drugs.

GMOs and Our Health

By Joan Elliott

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - One of the big controversies with GMOs is how it affects the health and wellness of those who consume them. Both sides have very strong opinions and valid arguments.

Pro-GMOers talk about the need to feed the world and the altruistic view of using fewer pesticides and less herbicide. They believe that by splicing in gene’s that encourage the plant to protect itself will reduce the use of deadly chemicals on crops, thereby protecting the environment.

The science provided through multiple college research projects have found no significant difference in development when testing feed animals side by side with organic and GMO feeds. The University of California, Davis (UCD), study found that the quality and quantity of the meat and eggs was the same. Currently there is a World Food Center at the UCD that takes a “big picture” approach to sustainability and solving humanities most pressing problems in food and health, according to the Another study that was reviewed by the Mayo Clinic showed there was not a significant difference between organic produce and non-organic in their nutritional content.
