The question of reducing the impact on the environment caused by the use of GMOs across all nations

Issue in GA 3: Environmental, Humanitarian and Health Issues

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are used for a variety of reasons. GMOs are used in medicines to create pills and vaccines to cure ourselves. GMOs are used in agriculture to enhance nutrition or to increase the resistance of a crop to disease. The way in which organisms are modified varies immensely according to their purpose but also depending on the country they happen to be in. Most North and South American countries and large parts of East Asia allow the growth and development of GMOs. The United States even uses growth hormones to cultivate their meat. Whilst some countries are clearly against and some are in favour, some lie somewhere in between. Whether the use of GMOs is good for our environment remains an unanswered question dependent on culture and opinion.
