Everything in our live have two sides: one is good and other one is bad. It is hard to find perfect things. The genetically modified (GM) Foods like other things have both sides which are good and bad in the same time. Now, GM foods are a big debate if it is good or bad for people’s health. The GM Foods mean food that produced from organic that had specific changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. Even though GMF are like causing damage environment and original farmers, in general most GMF have some advantages. GM food can provide low cost and it may be lower than the organic foods. It save the time. It provides a good size. It feed more people, especially poor countries.
The other benefits of GMF is the cost maybe lower than the organic foods. The economic by using GMF will be higher in country because if the price are cheap, both farmers and consumers are comfortable. According to Christie, Monsanto Company sells the alfalfa, and this alfalfa was GM to prevent weeds from growing in the crops (118). Farmers can protect their farms by using alfalfa. Then, they will sell them for more than one market. So, they will success in their business. This alfalfa is good to protect crops and environment. Even though, there are negative side of using alfalfa. In his writing, Ban on Monsanto GM Alfalfa Upheld, Christie maintained that alfalfa is growing out of the U.S. for livestock and every years again. Therefore, the environment groups, organic farmers, and consumer groups are angry because it will mix with other varieties of alfalfa, weeds will become impossible to kill, and it will bad for export business (119). However, it is good for farmers who cannot afford the biotechnology. The neutral have disease and pollution without using alfalfa. For instance, Malaria and position plants, they are neutral and have one said which is bad. Comparing with alfalfa which has a good and bad effect in the same time.
Also, the consumers will be satisfied because they will find a good price that maybe lower than the original foods all what they need with a good price. Monsanto can attract a lot of consumers by putting labels in it is product. These labels can change consumers’ attitude. Huffman, et al. (2003) agreed when he wrote, “Two prominent environmental groups, Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, believe GM labeling would benefit consumers, and these groups advocate labels on GM foods to give consumers the right to choose whether to consume GM products” (483). Therefore, the label can change the consumers’ opinion.
Moreover, GMOs can save time and money especially with farmers. By using GM crops, help to farm the crops in any season and protect them in the same time. In addition, it is saving the time, such as if the plant needs three months to grow, with GMOs needs one month to grow. This benefit Also, for both farmers and consumers. Farmers do not need many months waiting their crops to be ready, and consumer do not wait...
