Transcript

  • 1. Welcome To
    Howard’s Science Project!
  • 2. What the heck is a GMO?
    A GMO is a shorter way of saying Genetically Modified Organisms
    Organisms A.K.A. Food
    Food A.K.A. Yummy
    GMO = Food that is genetically changed by chemicals
    GMO's
    “Food, iz Nice!”
  • 3. Not all food “Iz Nice”, Borat
    Most foods on the shelves of Supermarkets are GMO Foods
    Corn, for example, is a GMO food that is genetically modified in a laboratory making it resistant to pesticides
    It is then sent to farmers to grow and harvest.
    Then it is sent to the Supermarkets for your consumption
    Production of GMO's
  • 4. So basically, my body is taking in the chemicals and gasses in the GMO Foods?!
    Sadly, yes, yes it is
    Testing of the GMO’s are not required by the FDA (Food Safety and Applied Nutrition)
    Food industries do NOT want this secret to be revealed to the public as they would lose tons of money
    Money, money, money. That’s what its all about
    Farmers and corporations don’t care about your health, just you money 
    Humans aren’t the only creatures harmed, plants, insects, and animals are too
    Ethical Issues With GMO's
  • 5. GMO Foods could cause:
    Allergic reactions
    Diseases
    Cancer
    Super viruses such as HIV
    Shorter life spans
    Birth defects
    Lowered nutrition
    Poisoning
    Health Issues With GMO's
  • 6. NOT ALL HOPE IS LOST!
    People are being exposed to the truth behind what they eat thanks to the internet, documentaries, books, etc.
    People are starting to fight against the GMO corporations
    Natural foods such as Grass-fed beef, free range chicken, non-nitrite meat products, raw organic nuts, sesame, olive, and coconut oil, and many more natural foods are still produced today
    Down With the GMO's!
  • 7. This is the basic summary of things:
    GMO/ Processed Foods = Evil
    Natural Foods = Good
    Borat likes food
    GMO Industries don’t take your health into consideration, just your cash
    GMO Foods can cause many health risks
    Summary
  • 8. Thank you for tuning into Howard’s Science Project!
    Remember, you can still choose to be healthy by choosing natural foods instead of processed foods.
    Oh and one more thing… Mr. Chassagne is the best teacher ever! (Extra Credit?)
    See you guys!
