Ever since GMO’s were first discovered and put to use around the turn of the 20th century, they have been widely debated and criticized. But, it is time for us citizens to understand the way the country and world as a whole are going towards. The population of the world is increasing by the second, and with that our food supply is dwindling. In 2000, just 61% of all cotton grown in the U.S. contained GMOs. In 2016, it was estimated that upwards of 93% of our cotton contained or was grown using GMOs. We must continue to study the affects and uses of GMO’s, as they will probably prove useful in the future. With our world ever-growing, our food sources are becoming more and more scarce. We must act while we can and investigate further into GMOs and how beneficial they can be.
