Most consumers, probably like yourself, are thrown off by the term “genetically modified” when it comes to produce being purchased and prepared for consumption.

It has come to my attention that consumers are concerned about the health effects as well as the amount of damage that GMO’s have on the environment. For twenty-two years, plant biotechnology has been used in Canada. This is just simply the act of introducing desirable traits to plants using genetic modification. In those past twenty-two years, not one case of illness caused by GMO’s has been reported. Back in 2016, there were 900 research findings, from around the world, analyzed by scientific societies to find absolutely no evidence of human health or environmental risk found to be caused by GMO’s.

I understand that it is impossible for each individual on planet earth to know and understand all the truths of the world, but that is why we must take that leap of faith and trust the professionals in the agriculture industry.

Michigan State University biochemist, Dean Della Penna, believes that GM foods are going to be the cause of the next advances in the health world. He plans on seeing tomatoes and broccoli full of cancer fighting chemicals and bananas that can deliver vaccines.

It’s common knowledge that humans need food to live. In order to cater to the demanding nutritional needs of our expanding population farmers are going to have to produce 70% more food then we already are today. That is a huge number that currently sounds intimidating but, with the help of GMO’s we should be able to come close to our goal of producing the safe, nutritious, and delicious food we need. The organisms are being modified for better results. To increase yields, which is environmentally friendly in the sense that more produce is being grown on less land. 

I would like to see our consumers give it a chance and open their eyes to what’s really going on. As the world ages, our technology must advance in all areas, GMO’s are an example of just that.
