CLAIM: Benefit of using GMOs is that food will be saved from insects wanting to eat it.
EVIDENCE: “This can reduce the amount of pesticide chemicals used on the plants, thus potentially reducing exposure to pesticides” (Pros & Cons of GMO Foods).
COUNTERCLAIM: Even though the food would be saved from insects, the toxins that kill the insects could be unhealthy for human's to consume.
COUNTERARGUMENT:I must be okay to consume because they have been doing that for years, and no one has died from it yet.
