Katelynn's OpinionGentically modified food is a great idea because it's healthier,reduces waste and can act as a natural pesticide.

Sophia's Opinion My opinion on genetically modified foods is that they should still be allowed to test the foods because it can help us in the future for a natural pesticide. Many people have thoughts about this topic because they don't want to eat pesticides, but the food can prevent that from happening, so in this case, I agree with genetically modified foods.
