Albeit studies determined there are "no significant hazards" in consuming GMO crops, they are still regarded as pariah. Bill Gates argues that the products are safe for consumption, and could be used to fight hunger and malnutrition.

And nearly all the food we eat today has been genetically modified in some way. Dozens of crops, from corn to watermelon, have been selectively bred for thousands of years to give us the traits we find desirable, like large amounts of sweet, edible flesh, or small seeds.

And many other products — some of them life-saving — might not exist without genetically modified ingredients.
