I created a PowerPoint highlighting the only test done on genetically modified organisms. A 90-day test was done on rats, using a Monsanto variety of corn. By doing this, I hope to give my audience a visual of what eating genetically modified products can and is doing to consumers' bodies. My goal is not to scare my audience, but I do want them to be a little concerned of what could be happening inside their bodies if they continue to consume genetically modified crops. By actually being able to see the health effects, it makes the problem more relatable for everyday people. My brother sparked my interest in the topic of genetically modified organisms. I have acquired valuable knowledge on the subject through my research and I have passed on the information to many of my acquaintances. I was shocked at how many resources I found concerning the topic of genetically modified foods. Even though this course is virtually over, my interest on the matter has only grown and I will continue to pursue further knowledge. My hope is that when my PowerPoint is viewed, a fire will spark in my audience and they will also want to find more information and ways to keep themselves and/or their families safe. It was difficult finding legal images to use, but even though I have only included one image, I feel like the information I provided with it does not require extra images. Even though the quotes can get a little lengthy, I thought it was important to include them to show the validity of the study and the concerns that arose.
