What´s Genetically Modified Organisms?
This process has since evolved to take hold into our plants and animals that we now consume on a daily basis. Almost all of the items that you consume on a daily basis has a wilder, less edible counterpart that once was. We can use the example of genetically modified maize or better known as corn. Corn was first domesticated around 7,000 BC and according to studies, was barely edible and had the consistency of a raw potato. Between artificial selection and genetically modifying this crop, it has become 1,000 times larger, 3.5 times sweeter, and much easier to grow than its wild counterpart. Modern genetically modified corn is now also herbicide resistance and can even produce its own insecticide to produce a greater yield. A big question going around currently is that “Are genetically modified foods safe?”. According to recent studies done over the past 10 years, scientists have found
