Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to not choose genetically modified foods, but organic foods instead. Thesis Statement: Even though most of the food in the United States is genetically modified, there are still plenty of organic choices to choose from. I.Introduction
B.Tie to the audience:
C.Thesis and Preview: Today I’d like to talk to you about first, the difference between genetically modified foods and organic foods, how genetically modified foods may harm you, and finally, the organic alternatives to genetically modified foods. I’ll begin by telling you exactly what the difference is between genetically modified and organic foods. II.Body
A.Even though most of the food in the United States is genetically modified, we still need to eat less of it. 1. Genetically modified foods are engineered foods that have had foreign genes insrted into their genetic codes. a. Genetic modification can be done with plants, animals, or microorganisms. b. The best know example of Genetic modification is the use of B.t genes in corn which produces crystal proteins that are lethal to insect larvae. 2. Organic foods are foods that do not use synthetic materials during production. a. Produce is grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. b. Animals that produce meat, eggs, or dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones. I’m sure that you all can already see why organic is way better then the genetically modified foods. But to make sure, I’ll now tell you about how genetic modification may affect you. B.
You can see that genetically modified foods can’t be good for you. Now lets look at the ways organic foods can benefit you and where you can find them, if you are interested in living a more healthy lifestyle. C.
