The article, 'GMO Crops Don't Harm Human Health, Report Says,' by Justin Wordland, discusses a report that was reviewing 900 publications to see if there are negative affects on human health and the environment. The report says there are no negative affects of GMOs on human health, but others disagree. I chose this article because it talks about important subtopics, such as labeling GMOs, arguments about the safety of GMOs, and the pros and cons of GMOs. This article should be read last out of the three articles.
In the article, ' Genetically Modified Foods," by the Genetic Science Learning Center, it talks about what genetically modified food is, what problems genetically modified foods can solve, and what concerns the cause. The central idea of this article is that genetically modified plants promise solutions to problems, but cause concerns. I chose this article because it talks about what GMOs are which will help you understand the topic more. It also talked about the concerns GMOs cause and what solutions they can solve. This will help others understand why people are against GMOs and why companies make GMO products. This should be the first article you read.
In the article, ' PRO/CON: Is it time to label GMO foods? ' by Newsela, the author discussed that some say that if we labeled GMO foods, people would stop worrying about pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and other unnatural things in their food. Others say that labels will cost more, and they are not needed. This shows that there are pros/cons to labeling GMO foods. I chose this article because it shows both sides of the argument and talks about a important subtopic of GMOs. It talks about labeling GMOs which is an important topic in the discussion of GMOs. I think this article should be the second one you read.
