actually!!! no!! ur really wrong and its shitty to spew shit about things you don’t know anything about!! also i never deleted any post? what? bye
in fact no, not bye, let me break it down point by point to publicly prove your dumbassery here so people stop believing this bullshit about ~evil GMOs~~
to anyone reading this, please for gods sake continue reading if you in any way agree with this anon because you really need to be educated and no that’s not me being condescending it’s actually very important that people know this shit (the rudeness in this is directed toward the anon, not you, friend)
firstly, because this is the most hilarious, “DNA from god knows where” ???????
?? ??? ? are u literally shitting me ah yes these scientists that have spent years experimenting and figuring out exactly which genes from which plants would work best to splice with what other plants have totally just picked ~~DNA from god knows where~~ like?? lol how idiotic are you to think anyone is going to buy your BS
as for your main argument, what do u think selective breeding is????? ?? it’s called natural genetic modification. when we selectively breed, we are using intentional evolution to enhance the traits we desire, the traits that make the crops more efficient, more hardy, etc. and in doing so, we are modifying their genes – just like nature!! when plants evolve in nature, it’s genetic modification!! their genes are being modified – and are adopting genetic coding from other plants – to make them more resistant against natural selection!!! that’s what nature does!! oh no how dare we use something that occurs naturally to our advantage lol
besides that, genetic modification of crops generally has less to do resistance to pesticides (which is actually mostly untrue anyway - they generally modify them to be pest resistant, not pesticide resistant - which means using less pesticides. in fact, 95% less than those used on your precious crops that ARENT modified to be pest resistant. but you know, awful GMOs right?) and a lot more to do with creating better, more efficient, more profitable, and more enjoyable crops; ie, the corn example i used.
remember what corn used to look like before we genetically modified it??
we didn’t get it to where it is now by ~making it resistant to pesticides~ although yea that is a very slight part of it. again, not actually what happens, because it’s modified to be PEST resistant, not pesticide resistant, reducing use of pesticides greatly. but congrats on proving how completely misinformed on the subject you are, though. really, thank you for totally discrediting your entire argument so i don’t have to do any more of that.
but in case that wasn’t enough!! here’s a quick list of reasons against the whole ~~I’m gonna say GMOs are evil because I don’t understand them!!!!~~~ dealio u got goin on there:
- 3rd world countries are now able to grow food where they were never able to before due to crops being genetically modified to be drought resistant, pest resistant, etc. like how the hell can u say something is ~bad~ when it’s literally saving millions of people from starving to death
- in 20 years we will starve if we don’t have GMOs, and that’s a fact. the rate at which crops grow without being further genetically modified is far too slow to support out growing population, especially with loss of said crops due to pests, drought, etc etc
- like I’ve said twice now, the genetic modification creating crops that are more pest resistant means that these crops use 5% of the pesticides used on plants not modified to be pest resistant!! that is a 95% decrease in pesticide use!!!! because of GMOs!!!
- seriously I cannot stress enough how important it is that this literally allows us to save the lives of people in 3rd world countries – AND without exploiting them for money! that’s a new one for us! whoa
but fucking seriously don’t be an idiotic twat about topics ur clueless on just because the internet says u should be
and if u disagree with me on this feel free to provide any published scientific evidence proving that GMOs are harmful because I guarantee you will find literally none
goodbye ignorant dudebro please stop being a twat thx
