Moreover, another ethical issue that comes up is that of government responsibility towards the public and this is mainly because of the fact that despite numerous studies that show the dangers of GM foods for human consumption, the government still chooses to cite those studies published by companies that sell GM foods, even though these studies are more likely than not to be biased. The final ethical issue that comes up is that of Monsanto donating seeds to Haiti that are expensive to fertilize, leading to a situation where Haitians are left dependent on aid.
The anti-GM foods group seems to be correct in its argument that GM foods are not good for human consumption mainly because of the scientific studies that have been made that show the same result. Furthermore, the FDA has approved some GM foods only for animal and not for human consumption and this can only have been done as a result of dangers that were perceived when conducting studies. It is essential to note that there are risks which have been associated with GM foods or seeds related to them such as those GM seeds. Once planted cannot produce seeds which can be planted in the following season, meaning that even more of the GM seeds need to be bought in order to ensure that there is enough food (Caroll and Buchholtz, 2010). Such a situation, like the one shown in the study of Haiti, shows that GM makes it difficult for poor individuals, especially peasants, who live on the land, to overcome the problem of hunger and achieve food security. The cultivation of GM seeds is more expensive than necessary and this leaves subsistence farmers in a worse off condition than before adopting GM seeds.
