Claim: One benefit of GMOs are that they are resistance to disease/virus
Evidence: For example GMO Hawaiian papaya is resistant now to ringspot virus. The GMO papaya grew 25 pounds more crops than the natural papaya.
COUNTERCLAIM: What if the papaya hadn't been very well tested and ended up causing more problems rather than solving anything?
Counterargument: That is a strong point but, I still believe that having no diseases/viruses on food is better than food getting destroyed from bugs that spread diseases. The food that gets destroyed could of been food that the poor could of eaten.
Claim: One concern of GMOs are that animals are being abused.
Evidence: For example GMOs can make animals obese. GMO salmons are cooped up in farms and can spread disease.
