GMO Article Critique

GMOArticle Critique

Thearticle by Walia argues against GMOs and advocates the creation ofawareness about the use of GMO food. To resent the argument, Waliamakes assumptions that influence the reader to view GMOs in theperspective of the website. Theauthor assumes that GMOs are dangerous to human and plant health. Atthe same time, Walia assumes that the world can have sufficient foodproduction without the use of the GMOs. This is in addition to theauthor’s assumption that the current world can feed the populationwithout the use of GMOs. According to Walia (1), people do not needGMOs because the planet can be fed through organic food.

Theauthor has the hiddenof value of value for organic products or materials rather thantechnologically enhanced production. In addition, the author presentsa bias over the use of GMOs by suggesting that they are a significantcause of diseases.However, theinformation presented by the author is accurate enough to hold hisargument. The information is accurate because it reflects thefindings of the research quoted by the author. Just as presented, aresearch in Canada found multiple toxins in maternal and fetal bloodfrom GMOs(Arisand Samuel 5).

Therefore,theauthors can make the same conclusion with the information they aremaking. This is because they hold the same view and attitude towardsthe use of GMOs, and rely on the same information. The conclusionarrived from an argument is influenced by the facts, perception andthe attitude of the person making it (Myers31).While there may be other information to refute what Walia presents,the conclusion is based on the information he presents and theargument against GMOs.
