Claim: One major benefit of GMOs is that they provide more food.
Evidence: increase the food supply, help underfed nations, and assist farmers(Gmo’s-Pros and cons).
COUNTERCLAIM: If we give them the food then how about if they are allergic to the substances that are in the "GMO". So that is practically canceling the giving them food out.
Counter argument: Some GMOs are resistance to diseases and viruses and not all GMOs are bad for you.
Claim: One concern is that they haven't been tested enough to be used and can spread more diseases.
Genes can be modified to make crops more resilient when it comes to disease, especially those spread through insects. This can lead to higher crop yields, which many experts argue can help to feed people in developing countries(Pros and cons of genetically modified foods).
