#2 Genetically modified organisms have been an incredibly hot topic to debate in recent years. Some argue that they are a safe way to feed large quantities of people, while others argue that their environmental effects outweigh the benefits. According to an article by David Freedman, many biologists are afraid to challenge the science behind genetically modified organisms because they are afraid to be targeted by other biologists (Freedman 4). Large companies with a lot of money tend to back the research saying that genetically modified organisms are safe and beneficial which leads to less biologists challenging them (Freedman 4). In the article by Freedman, a biologist named David Zilberman named a few reasons why genetically modified organisms are beneficial (Freedman 7). Genetically modified organisms have lowered the price of food around the world significantly, according to Zilberman, and they have also decreased the amounts of pesticide that farmers use (Freedman 7).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
