    Why are you against it? Your reasons for being against it would make the start of your argument.

    erm you could say:

    1. Genetic engineering is still very newto science. Noone knows what the long term affect mights be. for example Insects may become pesticide resistant is they eat a constant diet of pesticide forming plants.

    2. Some people may be concenred about the effect of eating GM food may have on human health. Genes form gentecically modiefied plants andanimals may spread to the wildlife of countryside.

    3. Gm crops are often made infertile,which means farmers in poorer countries have to buy new seeds each year

    4. People may want to manipulate the genes for the future children.which may goagaibnst the belief the laws and nature of god


    Hope i helped.
