“Audacious at trying out everything, men rush headlong into the things that have been forbidden.”
Major food corporations and industries changed the very aspects of living from the beginning of their existence. As the McDonald’s brothers were making their big debut with their hamburgers in the 1940s, they became one of the largest fast food chains in the country. Seeing society enhancing in a mere sixty years is phenomenal but worrisome. As Virgil mentioned in his Homeric poem, men started to create things that shouldn’t exist. As the years progressed, scientists started to genetically modify the very essence of organisms to match their needs. Not only has fast food incorporated this into their food, even our supermarkets contain these new products. The question “Are genetically modified organisms good for society?” might be going through your mind. However, what these scientists did worked against the well being of society and affected it immensely. Genetically modified foods are unsafe, but most people can not differentiate what is good.
Genetically modified foods are unhealthy for people since it creates medical problems and should be avoid cost.
You may be thinking, “What exactly are genetically modified organisms and what do they do?” Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs for short, are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals created for human or animal consumption (Whitman 1). Scientists have modified these plants so that they can become “super plants”, plants that can survive under any circumstances pertaining to climate. For example, in a desert, it is hard to grow typical crops like tomatoes or corn. Therefore, scientists modify the genes of the crops so that they can out-stand that specific climate. At first it seems great that they are doing the unthinkable, to actually change the molecular structure of plants so that it can survive anywhere, but what can we get from this? This is not what nature has intended for us. If nature wanted a tomato to grow where there is sand, nature would have done so. People should not mess with the molecular structures of plants and put it in a place where it should not be. It disrupts the balance of what is real and what is artificial.
It is bad enough for scientists to play God and create an abnormal plant, but when food industries and supermarkets implement biological techniques to the foods that we eat, it is taken too far.
We are eating food that is artificial since most of it is genetically modified to be immune to certain ecosystems and chemicals.
The food industry not only disrupted the balance of nature with their biological practices, they cheated the American people into thinking their food is fresh and excellent. Genetically modified foods affected America in a horrible way by creating new health concerns to the American people. To them, we are the lab rats and we are being experimented...
