Moving To a More Sustainable Way of Living
The author did a very critical analysis of both sides of the spectrum by bringing
up very valid/relevant points currently on debate related to the discussion of genetically
modified organisms (GMO). He makes a case of why it is important to have a
clear/accurate description of a product on the ingredients list, as well as trying to move
forward with the growth of our communities as the numbers of mouths to feed keep
climbing. In his proposal he suggests, we should be more critical before advancing in
our decision making as far as environmental concerns/advances go. He also is
recommending a more unbiased final decision made from the leaders of the projects
before coming to a final conclusion. Basically, his case in the end, rest in the lines of
assuring information is efficient in every way necessary after deep analysis, involving
experimentation to verify and finally fully optimize ongoing farming/growing processes,
rather than assuming from previous experiences. In that sense we assure a healthy

more developed, more sustainable environment while keeping in mind the nature of
health in the new effectively synthesized products. This article effectively uses ethos,

Today almost 90 percent of soy crops and 80 percent of corn crops in the United States
sprout from genetically engineered seeds. Forty-five million acres of land worldwide
contain genetically engineered crops. From the perspective of commercial agriculture,
the technology has been seamlessly assimilated into traditional farming routines.”
(McWilliams P. 1). Also, by keeping his attitude/tone neutral and giving proper
information of both the opposition and himself, the author created a credible scenario for
the essay’s setting.
In the article the author uses good examples of pathos. The community has
earned the right of having the ingredients of the products they buy clear, not hidden. We
