Disadvantages of Genetic Modification Organisms (GMOs)

  1. 1. Disadvantages of Genetically Modification Organisms (GMO) Foods to Human. Speaker: Brendaly Raayoan Anak Robinson (14012808) ALPHA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY IN COLLABORATION WITH TWINTECH UNIVERSITY PUBLIC SPEAKING IN ENGLISH (BLM 3205)
  2. 2. What can you describe about this picture ?
  3. 3. Short story of Frankenstein. • Russia to the Pacific Ocean via the Arctic Ocean. • Victor Frankenstein. • professors M. Krempe and M. Waldman. • to re-create and reanimate a dead body. • combination of chemistry, alchemy, and electricity. • runs away. • "adopted" family, the De Laceys. • rejection by mankind. • to take revenge on his creator's family. - Shelly M. 2015. Frankenstein. (online) http://www.cliffsnotes.c om/literature/f/franken stein/frankenstein-at-a- glance (20 August 2015) -
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION What are GMOs? 1. Living organisms that already artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering or GE. 2. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
  5. 5. OBJECTIVE To inform all the audience about the danger of consuming Genetically Modification Organisms (GMO) to our body.
  6. 6. PREVIEW • 1.1 human breast cancer • 1.2 kidney and liver failure • 1.3 lung cancer Cause cancer • 2.1 Increase allergy • 2.2 corrosive to human tissue • 2.3 Contaminated our blood Decrease immune system • 3.1 sterility • 3.2 infant mortality • 3.3 Miscarriage Infertility
  7. 7. 1.0 Cause Cancer “It is possible GM DNA could affect stomach and colonic lining by causing a growth factor effect with the unproven possibility of hastening cancer formation in those organs“ Edward R. Eating GM Food could give you Cancer says Scientist. (online) http://www.rense.com/gen eral32/Eating.htm (26 August 2015)
  8. 8. 1.0 Cause Cancer. 1.1 Human Breast Cancer. " GMOs in our food allows for greater herbicide and pesticide used over time many of which are known endocrine disruptors.[…] The Breast Cancer Fund released a publication, “State of the Evidence” that connects environmental toxins to breast cancer. Some of the pesticides that they identified as causing mammary glands include propazine, cyanazine, chlordane, methhyl bromide, malathion, and 2,4-D. “ Anonymous. (2013). GMOs are linked to Breast Cancer. (online) http://protectourbreasts.org/gmos-are-linked-to-breast-cancer/ (28 August 2015)
  9. 9. 1.0 Cause Cancer. 1.2 Kidney and liver failure. “For the first time in the world, we've proven that GMO are neither sufficiently healthy nor proper to be commercialized. [...] Each time, for all three GMOs, the kidneys and liver, which are the main organs that react to a chemical food poisoning, had problems” Séralini E. (2009). Study Proves Three Monsanto Corn Varieties' Noxiousness to the Organism. (Online) http://www.truth- out.org/archive/component/k2/item/87204:study-proves-three-monsanto-corn- varieties-noxiousness-to-the-organism (20 August 2015)

  11. 11. 1.0 Cause Cancer. 1.3 Lung cancer. “From the chemical-lined bag to the actual contents, microwave popcorn is at the center of lung cancer debates around the world. Not only are the kernels and oil likely GMO (which the manufacturer does not have to disclose), but the fumes released contain diacetyl, which is toxic to humans.“ Journal. (2015). Top 10 Cancer-Causing Foods. (online) http://thetruthaboutcancer.com/cancer- causing-foods-2/ (26 August 2015)
  12. 12. 2.0 Decrease immune system. “ GM peas under development were evaluated by tests normally applied to medicine—not to GM food. The peas created a dangerous immune response in mice which, if found in humans, might be life threatening. The 10-year pea project, costing over $2 million dollars (US), was abandoned. If those same peas had been evaluated with tests used for other GM crops, however, they could have sailed through the approval process anywhere in the world.“ -Smith J.M. (2014). Genetically Modified Peas Caused Dangerous Immune Response in Mice. (online) http://www.responsibletechnology.org/gmo- dangers/health-risks/articles-about-risks-by- jeffrey-smith/Genetically-Modified-Peas-Caused- Dangerous-Immune-Response-in-Mice- NovemberDecember-2005 (26 August 2015)
  13. 13. 2.0 Decrease immune system. 2.1 Increase allergy “ Intuitively our body cells and the overall immune system seems to reject excess homogeneity. Each new food item produced contains many new potentially allergenic proteins. “ Batalion N. (2009). 50 Harmful effects of Genetically Modified (GM) Foods. (online) http://www.raw- wisdom.com/50harmful (26 August 2015)
  14. 14. 2.0 Decrease immune system. 2.2 Imbalance chemicals result in corrosive to human tissues. “ By changing the genetic order the new plant is high in starch which is corrosive to human tissues […] Changing the genetic order of wild life forms and creates genetic mineral and chemical imbalances and mutations in the new species and all that eats it. “ Sebi. (2013). Hybrid foods. (Online) http://thealkalineway.blogspot.com /2013/03/what-are-hybrid- foods.html (20 August 2015)
  15. 15. 2.0 Decrease immune system. 2.3 Contaminated our blood forever. “One published human feeding experiment suggests that toxins in GM soy transfer into bacteria that live inside our intestines – bacteria that continue to thrive long after we have stopped eating genetically modified foods. This could harm the balance of good bacteria in our intestines and turn our digestive systems into pesticide storehouses that create diseases resistant to antibodies.” Collins D. (2011). Fact or Myth: Do Denetically Modified Foods cause Cancer, Lung Damage & Birth Defects?. (online) http://undergroundhealthreporter.com/genet ically-modified-foods/ (26 August 2015)
  16. 16. 3.0 Infertility. “ Genetically Modified foods, according to researchers, are becoming a real problem when it comes to fertility, causing an influx in worldwide infertility rates. Since the 1970’s alone, sperm counts among the world’s male population have declined as much as 40-50%, according to some studies. GMO foods may be just one of the reasons, warn those studying the phenomenon. Rodriguez H. (2015). Research Indicates that GMO could be a cause of Infertility. (online) http://natural- fertility-info.com/gmo-infertility.html (26 August 2015)
  17. 17. 3.0 Infertility. 3.1 Sterility. “Between 1996 and 2008, US farmers sprayed an extra 383 million pounds of herbicide on GMOs […] results in "super weeds," resistant to the herbicide […] causing farmers to use even more toxic herbicides every year. Not only does this create environmental harm, GM foods contain higher residues of toxic herbicides is linked with sterility, hormone disruption, birth defects, and cancer.” Anonymous. (2014). Institute for Responsible Technology. 10 Reasons to Avoid GMOs. (Online) http://www.responsibletechnology.org/10-Reasons-to-Avoid- GMOs (20 August 2015)
  18. 18. 3.0 Infertility. 3.2 Infant Mortality “In a telling coincidence, after Irina Ermakova's feeding trials, her laboratory started feeding all the rats in the facility a commercial rat chow using GM soy. Within two months, the infant mortality facility-wide reached 55%. ” Smith G. (2011). Genetically Modified Soy Linked to Sterility, Infant Mortality in Hamsters. (online) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeffrey -smith/genetically-modified- soy_b_544575.html (26 August 2015)
  19. 19. 3.0 Infertility 3.3 Miscarriage • “ Human epidemiological studies have found an association between exposure to the chemicals used on our food crops, specifically those that have been genetically engineered to withstand them, and miscarriage, birth defects, neurological development problems, DNA damage and certain types of cancer.” Brien R. (2015). Chemical used on Genetically Engineered Foods linked to Cancer, Miscarriage. (online) http://www.justlabelit.org/chemicals- used-on-genetically-engineered- foods-linked-to-cancer-miscarriage/ (26 August 2015)
  20. 20. CONCLUSION "Millions of ordinary people are very worried about genetically modified foods and I am one of them....With genetically modified foods I believe we have reached the thin edge of the wedge, we are messing with the building blocks of life and it's scary.“ - Malcom Walker - “Genetically modified organism (GMO) foods are feared and hated by environmentalists and the public alike. Yet the scientific assessment of GMOs is remarkably different. Every major scientific evaluation of GMO technology has concluded that GMOs are safe for human consumption and are a benefit to the environment.” - Ramez Naam -
