Are GMOs Good or Bad? Genetic Engineering & Our Food

Are GMOs Good or Bad? Genetic Engineering & Our Food


GMOs are one of the most controversial areas of science. Genetic engineering is used in many fields, but even though medical applications like GM insulin are widely accepted, The debate heats up when it comes to food and agriculture. Why is that? Why is the same thing treated so differently? Let’s try to get to the bottom of this and explore the facts, the fears, and the future of GMOs. Humans have been genetically modifing plants and animals for thousands of years. Maybe a few of your crops had very good yields. Maybe one of your wolves was especially loyal. So you did the smart thing, and bred the plants and animals that had traits beneficial to you. Traits suggest an expression of genes. So with each generation, those genes got more pronounced. After thousands of years, almost every single plant and animal around us is vastly different from its pre-domesticated state. If humans have been changing genes for millennia, what makes a so called “Genetically Modified Organism”, or GMO, different? Selective breeding is basically hoping for lucky hits. Genetic engineering eliminates this factor. We can choose the traits we want. Make fruit grow bigger, immune to pests, and so on. So, why are people concerned about them ? Let’s start with one of the most common objections to GMOs. Gene flow, meaning GM crops could mix with traditional crops and introduce unwanted new characteristics into them. There is a method that might guarantee complete prevention, but is a big anti-GMO argument by itself. Terminator seeds. The idea is that they could produce sterile plants, requiring farmers to buy new seeds every year. The very concept of this, however, caused a public outcry, stopping the technology being put to use. This brings us back to the unintentional spreading of engineered DNA. There have been cases of GMOs growing where they weren’t planted, and traces of modified genes found in foreign crops. But GM plants can’t run wild entirely. Many crops pollinate themselves, and all crops have to be related to mingle. There are also cultural methods like buffer zones, to keep unintentional crossing at a minimum. But if it’s possible in principle that a GMO could unintentionally cross with a non-GMO, there’s actually a more important question. Is food that comes from GM crops different to food from non-GM crops? This question has been a major concern from the very beginning. GM plants that are destined to be eaten are checked for possible dangers, and the results are evaluated by multiple agencies. After more than 30 years and thousands of studies, the science is in. Eating GMO plants is no more risky than their non-GMO equivalent. But don’t just take it our word for it, the sources for this and other claims are in the video description. But what about plants that have been engineered to be toxic? For example, BT crops. A gene borrowed from the bacterium Bacillus Thuringiensis, lets engineered plants produce a protein that destroys the digestive system of specific insect pests. The plant makes its own pesticide. Insects that eat it die. That sounds alarming! Pesticide sprays could be washed off. While the poison in BT crops is inside the plant. But actually, it’s not a big deal. Poison is really just a question of different perspectives. What’s harmless to one species, might kill another. Coffee, for example, is a poison that kills insects but is harmless to us. Or take chocolate, it’s dangerous for dogs but a pleasure for humans. BT crops produce a protein that is tailored to the specific design of the digestive tract of certain insects; it’s completely harmless for us. There’s also the opposite approach. Plants that are engineered to be resistant to certain weed killers. This way, farmers can use them widely, killing the other plants competing for resources without harming the crop. Here, we get to the dark underbelly of GMOs. For the pesticide industry, they are big business. Over 90% of all cash crops in the US are herbicide resistant, mostly to glyphosate. As a result, the use of glyphosate has increased greatly. That isn’t only bad, glyphosate is much less harmful to humans than many other herbicides. Still, this means famers have a strong incentive to rely on this one method only, casting more balanced ways of managing weeds aside. That’s one of the most fundamental problems with the GMO debate. Much of the criticism of this technology is actually criticism of modern agriculture and a business practice of the huge corporations that control our food supply. This criticism is not only valid, it’s also important. We need to change agriculture to a more sustainable model. GMOs as a technology are actually an ally and not a enemy in that fight, helping to save and protect nature and minimize our impact on the environment. Let’s look at some positive examples. Eggplant is an important crop in Bangladesh but often, whole harvests are destroyed by pests. Farmers had to rely heavily on pesticides. Not only was this very expensive, Farmers also frequently got sick. The introduction of a new GM eggplant in 2013 stopped this. The same BT protein we talked about before, an effective killer of insects but harmless to humans, was engineered into them. This reduced insecticide use on eggplants by more than 80%. The health of farmers improved, and their income rose dramatically. And sometimes, the GM approach is the only option. In the 1990s, the papaya industry in Hawaii was under attack from the ringspot virus which threatened to wipe out Hawaiian papaya. The solution was a papaya genetically modified to be vaccinated against the virus. Without it, the state’s papaya industry would have collapsed. All these stories show a very narrow application. 99% of all GMOs we use right now produce pesticides, or are resistant against them. There is so much more we could do. The scientists are working on GMOs that could improve our diet. Plants that produce more or different nutrients, like fruit with higher antioxidant levels that help to fight diseases or rice with additional vitamins. On a larger scale, we’re trying to engineer plants more resilient to climate change, plants that can better adapt to erratic weather and adverse soil conditions, making them resistant to droughts or floods. GMOs could also not only reduce agriculture’s impact on the environment, but actively help to protect it. Scientists are working on crops that can draw nitrogen from the air, like microbes. Nitrogen is a common fertilizer, but its build-up pollutes the ground water and speeds up climate change. Plants that collect their own nitrogen could fix two problems at once. The over use of fertilizers in the developed world, as well as the shortage of it in developing countries. We could even modify plants to become super-effective carbon collectors, like the American chestnut tree, to mitigate and actually reverse climate change. With the tools we have today, our imagination is the limit. The world eats 11 million pounds of food every day. A UN estimate suggests we’ll need 70% more by 2050. We could grow that food by clearing more and more forests to create fields and pastures and by using more pesticides. Or we find a way to do it on the land we’ve got right now, with more effective methods like GM crops. Intensifying farming instead of expanding it means GMOs could become the new organic. In a nutshell, GMOs have the potential to not only drastically change agriculture but to also dampen the effects of our own irresponsible behavior. GMOs could be our most powerful weapon to save our biosphere. This video took more than 600 hours to make, which would be impossible without viewer support on Patreon.com.

  1. Question 1: What is natural?
    Kurzgesagt: Talks about how humans genetically modified orgasims in the past.
    … That wasn't the question

  2. What everyone is missing is the promise of GMO was to "feed the world"… Did this ever happen? NO ! The whole premise of GMO products is for Big Pharma to give you flowery false promises which of course you fall for every time when actually you are a willful part of a gigantic experiment. The end result is big pharma destroying everything natural in order to corner and copyright the food market – nothing else.

  4. StarLink Corn for animal fodder (Taco Bell Corn Shells) was a BT Toxin corn that ended up in the Human Food chain. People became ill, then it got recalled……. HARM FROM DIGESTION in Humans , not in cattle. How surprising: People aren't cows with 5 stomachs….who knew? LOL Yeah, the SCIENCE IS INDEED IN, KZGT just chose to ignore some FACTS…..and present the standard US rhetoric instead.

  5. What an INTERESTING , Colourful VIDEO CLIP….and BULLSHIT to boot!
    Instead, just show us the Human Safety Trials in full accordance with UN Codex recommendations. Wha??/ Never done?? then how is this GMO 'scientifically' safe, say, like GMO meds which ARE CLINICALLY TESTED and therefore acceptable?
    How S T U P I D must you be to buy into this piece of anti-science???? C'mon KZGT, pull the other one…..

  7. READ THE UN CODEX: After 23 years of unlabelled sales, GMO Food for Humans is STILL COMPLETELY EXPERIMENTAL: There has never been a scientific safety study on Human consumption of GMO Foods. > EXPERIMENTAL!! An open-ended, uncontrolled HUMAN feeding experiment in America, for over 23 years and still running….. The land of the free……??? GOOGLE: Codex: “ Principles for the risk analysis of foods derived from modern biotechnology “ The truth is there , if you want it….it's NOT here in this video.

  8. SCIENTIFIC HUMAN SAFETY TESTING (per UN Codex standard) ON GMO PRODUCTS IS COMING, YOU CANNOT AVOID IT!!
    The EU will HAVE TO DO IT, or this improperly tested crap will rot on all the shelves….. as it should.
    No 'unlabelled' public blind-folding will be TOLERATED in the EU, and so your experimental 'murican food-game is over…..NOW the REAL SAFETY SCIENCE STARTS….only now, 23 years after unlabelled public sales started in America…..some war-crimes are lesser…….

  9. Its Fake Food people wake up they're getting ride of the real food to give us bottom feeders fake food. Ita gonna break down our bodies not help

  10. CRY ABOUT THIS CLIP! UN CODEX on GMO SAFETY: " Unintended effects can result from the random insertion of DNA sequences into the plant genome, which may cause disruption or silencing of existing genes, activation of silent genes, or modifications in the expression of existing genes. Unintended effects may also result in the formation of new or changed patterns of metabolites. "
    For example, the expression of enzymes at high levels may give rise to secondary biochemical effects or changes in the regulation of metabolic pathways and/or alteredlevels of metabolites”
    "46: ….. consideration should be given to the potential impacts on human health using conventional procedures for
    establishing the safety of such metabolites  *(e.g. procedures for assessing the human safety of chemicals in
    foods)*  .” i.e. Human Safety  Studies, YET: None ever. The SCIENCE IS NOT IN, KZGT LIES!! Animal studies? Yup, many! BUT 1 in 11 still find HARM on FDA approved crops. How did the misss that FACT??

    The worlds highest international Food-safety Platform, the UN CODEX, versus KZGT (re-discovered Food Fascists?) on Human Food safety? Yeah, colorful Berds are better, right??

  11. The UN FAO (Food & Agricultural Organization, Ducky) has this: " “4) First, despite what is sometimes said, we do not need GMOs to resolve the current world hunger
    problem. There is enough food for everybody, but millions of people are poor and simply do not have the money to buy food – that is why access to food is a major problem.” THAT is the OFFICIAL POSITION of the UN FAO. So, WHY are GMO crops so widespread? EASY: The are cheaper / easier to produce IN THE SHORT-TERM, which is where Corporate has ALWAYS made it's money, usually at the expense of the medium-longterm returns. Who cares, it's not illegal, they'll fix it LATER, just like Global Warming…., the Antibiotic crisis, the Big 'Baccy payouts, the Asbestos moguls, …..you get the picture….. DISGUSTING MORAL EFFLUENCE OF HUMANITY. Living off the deaths of Joe Average….what Heroes!

  12. LOLS. " GMO's are one of the the most controversial areas of science" says the KZGT intro. WRONG!!! Nothing controversial in the UN CODEX Safety recommendations on GMO Foods for Humans. Straightforward, gold-standard, clinical best Practice.
    The ONLY CONTROVERSY is how CORPORATE GMO has actively avoided the Codex recommendations….yet is still legally allowed to sell their IMPROPERLY TESTED, EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCT for 23 years to millions of Americans, UNLABELLED to add insult. YAY, $$$$$$

  13. in india there is a special train from bhatinda (punjab) to bikaner(rajasthan) which is also called as cancer train, b coz mostly 60 % or more cancer patients travel in this train for cure , please make video on it , if possible. i love your videos a lot, , great work hats off. please keep it up.

  15. Who owns the patten to the seeds & can we hear the framers from country’s that have used it like India; and
    Seeds are still gods property (yes;no)

  16. In the same couple of minutes you say gmo is the same as selective breeding, just without the lottery, then say how a "borrowed" gene from a bacteria transplanted in a plant is a cool pesticide.
    which is my main problem with gmo and the narcissitic nature of humans. this is playing god with systems we dont understand. show me how you would selectively breed bacteria and corn ? no we just go in cut out a part of DNA smack it on another organism, hold it in place with duct tape and call it a day. if we knew all that there is to know about both these organisms and the full interaction between the food we eat and our bodies this would be fine, but this is not the case. havent you watched jurassic park ? selective breeding is also based on actual and gradual outcome.
    not only we do not know or care about the process, things that could be harmful now skip the QA stages. selective breeding is a slow process with continuous integration and testing. if there is a problem we would probably find out in time to stop it, here by the time bad effects might manifest we will be 50 generations of ctrl-c ctrl-v later, and with half of farms polluted with our mad experiments. way to go !
    the biggest thing that makes me anti-gmo food is the lobbying for bans on marking food gmo-free. this just proves to me extreme measures taken in the form of aggresive and toxic marketing. this is not a "mark all gmo as harmful" its just "mark something as non gmo". this is either treating the population as complete morons or trying to hide things or both. this alone is enough to show me this industry is not good for us.

  17. i actually allready knew this, but it baffles me how i get most pushback from people that should care about the environment the most, no really those on the right are like, man that seems great, good for everyone, the benefits outweigh the negatives, so why not do it, those on the left are usually telling me how it is unethical or how they might spread

    i usually retort by saying that we have been doing the same thing since produce became a thing, that produce itsself only became substaineble because we made it so (evidence sugests that the first Agricultural lifestyles lead to lower health and shorter lives, with especially bad teeth and so on, but through selective breeding we got these big juicy fruits and especiallu those large cobs of maize, (it is also my argument against those that say we were vegitarians, no our ancestors were omnivores for generations, and before that mostly ate meat, our intestines are not adapted for vegitarian lifestyles, at least not when plants were not as we know them today, (those for consumption that is) the only thing that allows us to even digest vegetation is our teeth, we all ate peas, we all know what our excrement looks like after eating them, same with carrots and other greens or grains, we only digest that which we mulched over, all the rest does not give us nutrients

    I believe that most of it is dogma, and it is strongest on the left today, it no longer matters if it is better, is it virtues, can we feel special or rebellious if we use it, same with nuclear energy, march after march but none of them know that not only is it the best solution we have, it is also greener than renewable and oh many use the radioactive cores of nuclear weaponry that is being dismantled nowadays, actively giving us a usefull way of disposing of it, and the major drawbacks, nuclear wast and disasters, well the waste can be stored away safely, it is put in bunkers, and in fact material can be used several times over to produce energy before getting to that stage, then there are the 2 main disasters, tchernobyl, where people died due to a human error, and the world learned from it, the second is Fukushima, a nuclear plant struck by a natural disaster, in this case one should ask questions about what the japanese were actually thinking, as over centuries if not millenia the japanese developed architectural practices which were specifically meant to make their structures resistant to earthquakes and tsunamis, and then they built a nuclear plant basicly right next to a faultline, the result should have surprised nobody but it did, because bureaucrats are rarely varried in their interests, and nuclear physisists probably have little interest in history or architecture or geology

    in the end some people want to help out, but wellmeaning as they are, dogmatic thinking keeps them from accepting the only valid ways of doing it

  18. Golden Rice 'efficacy' study, apologizes for the LACK OF HUMAN SAFETY testing , excerpt: " Although this attests to the probable safety of Golden Rice, we acknowledge that only a single serving was fed to each study subject. A much longer exposure with a larger cumulative consumption of Golden Rice would be needed to make definitive assertions regarding the inherent safety of this food for human use . MORE STUDIES REQUIRED. Google 'pubmed, golden rice, efficacy'. Peer-reviewed science…not pretty 'Berds'….LOLS.

  20. One day we might find a good balance where we push the plant in the right direction and it can find natural ways of fighting off problems

  21. man. in all the goddamn bad news about climate change and shit like the amazon and greenland is making me sad. im watching all of kurzgesagts stuff on genetically modified things because they give me hope.

  22. I'm not sure how was eggplant was important to Bangladesh. But our tomatoes, modified in Netherlands. Our seedless watermelon modified in California USA. So 99% of our food modified 4 good

  23. I like this video. It does a great job of explaining why GMOs aren't dangerous. But Sweet Mother Teresa On The Hood Of A Mercedes Benz this comment section is more toxic then Pripyat.(Pripyat is the town where the Chernobyl disaster happened for those who didn't know)

  25. The information for this topic is very confusing. I have read multiple articles online stating "No substantial evidence exists that GM crops yield more than conventional crops. What genetically engineered crops definitely do lead to is greater use of pesticide, which is harmful both to humans and the environment."…

  26. "It could mitigate and reverse climate change."
    So, Instead of global warming, we would have Global Cooling?

  27. Principles for the risk analysis of foods derived from modern biotechnology
    by the UN Codex!!!
    READ IT!! It's from the UN Codex, the worlds highest / independant food-safety platform.

    They recommend HUMAN TESTING, LABELLING, POST-MARKETING SURVEILLANCE for GMO Foods. FACT. Go read! No other food category has such stringent safety recommendations, only GMO….. silly UN Codex vs KZGT mouthpiece?

  28. Science and farmers: GMO crops are good and without them, the agriculture industry will collapse. They are more helpful than dangerous. We have thousands of examples.

    Public: no

  30. So since people dont want GMO foods, let them pay more for the food. After all the yield will be less and not so nutrisious. People are complaining for the GMO now, so if we go full on natural then we must expand the fields for crops. Then people will complain that we cut forests to make more fields for crops and so on…….. We as humans are very dumb species.

  31. At no point you mentioned monsanto you disingenuous Kunt! An argument to be open and honest must be by its definition non biased to not mention the greatest producer of GMOs and its moves to change the laws in every country it operates is at best disingenuous and worst a purposeful act of disinformation and lies!

  35. We never tested it on people but let's give it to them,and tell them it's good for them like how we poisoned the indians or better yet,how we took nuclear waste from the atom bomb and put it in their tooth paste and say it's good for their teeth,we'll make a bundle and hey you know people will fall for it they'll believe anything,and they do….

  36. In theory, this is all well and good, but I would never, EVER trust a food manufacturer to put safety protocols ahead of their profits. Even with multiple oversight organizations, I wouldn't put it past the food manufacturers to somehow get around them. They have proven time and time again that some people dying as a result of their negligence is "acceptable loses", and anyone would be foolish to believe they have your best interests in mind.

  37. Basically the GMO's are so that farmers and businesses don't go bankrupt, even though the other benefit is to stop climate change.
    What happens when a bug that dies after consuming GMO's is eaten by a bird and the bird dies and another animal eats the dead bird and so on?
    Is it safe?
    What happens to us if our bodies are not tailored for GMO's?

  38. it is my biological project so thanks for this information.
    it is really good to know about GMO and your technique (animation) is really halp to make lesson more simple. so thank you😃.

  39. Great video, I like the broad perspective on the topic(s).

    Some thoughts: 'Natural' is defined as "not made or caused by humankind"

    Interesting how GMO's might be compatible with the second part of the definition, being in agreement with the surrounding environment. …Some of it, anyway- I appreciate the mention of industrial agriculture. The methods are certainly disharmonious with nature. I just wish you could specifically name Monsanto here ^u^

  40. So what happens when all the insects that used to eat the plants suddenly die when eating the gmo plants? Dosent this hit hard on birds and other animals that live of these insects?

  41. It appears that KZGT have a LOT to to hide …..and answer for.
    How MANY comments / responses are 'ghosted'. 'cos they embarrass the KZGT narrative? EVERY SINGLE COMMENT THAT LINKS ANOTHER SOURCE IS SIMPLY NOT SHOWN.
    Wow, what happened to Science Communicator Kurzgesagt?? Guess corruption is now rife in Germany too….

  42. If we use it to make trees grow quickly and not die so quickly and if we GMO them to produce more oxygenm or to grow a stupid amount of leaves. Our global warming problem will be solved
