CLAIM: a major benefit of gm foods is that they are resistant to diseases and insects
EVIDENCE: for example, a quote to show this is “Genes can be modified to make crops more resilient when it comes to disease, especially those spread through insects.”
COUNTER-CLAIM: what if the technology or the genes used to create the gm food becomes outdated or obsolete and it does not work anymore to prevent the insects or the diseases from infecting or destroying the plants.

for example a quote to prove this is “BT toxin, designed to kill pests that eat crops, caused allergies and other responses."
COUNTER-CLAIM: wouldn't the label on the product itself have labels saying that the product came in contact with allergens
