CLAIM: One main concern of GMOs is that they can cause allergic reactions or bad side effects.
EVIDENCE: “GMO foods can present significant allergy risks to people, according to Brown University. Genetic modification often mixes or adds proteins that weren't indigenous to the original plant or animal, causing new allergic reactions in the human body” (Pros and Cons of GMO Foods).
COUNTERCLAIM: I agree but those same GMO foods also have more nutrients and are healthier for people.
COUNTERARGUMENT: That is true, but those GMO foods can also hurt people by giving them bad allergic reactions and side effects.
