  • 7. We need ARGUMENTS
    • Benefits
      • Crops
        • Reduced maturation time
        • Increased nutrients, yields, and stress tolerance
        • Enhanced taste and quality
        • Improved resistance to disease, pests, and herbicides
        • New products and growing techniques
      • Animals
        • Increased resistance, productivity, hardiness, and feed efficiency
        • Better yields of meat, eggs, and milk
        • Improved animal health and diagnostic methods
      • Environment
        • "Friendly" bioherbicides and bioinsecticides
        • Conservation of soil, water, and energy
        • Bioprocessing for forestry products
        • Better natural waste management
        • More efficient processing
      • Society
        • Increased food security for growing populations
    • Controversies
      • Safety
        • Potential human health impacts, including allergens, transfer of antibiotic resistance markers, unknown effects
        • Potential environmental impacts, including: unintended transfer of transgenes through cross-pollination, unknown effects on other organisms (e.g., soil microbes), and loss of flora and fauna biodiversity
      • Access and Intellectual Property
        • Domination of world food production by a few companies
        • Increasing dependence on industrialized nations by developing countries
        • Biopiracy, or foreign exploitation of natural resources
      • Ethics
        • Violation of natural organisms' intrinsic values
        • Tampering with nature by mixing genes among species
        • Objections to consuming animal genes in plants and vice versa
        • Stress for animal
      • Labeling
        • Not mandatory in some countries (e.g., United States)
        • Mixing GM crops with non-GM products confounds labeling attempts
      • Society
        • New advances may be skewed to interests of rich countries
