Everything that people eat has been genetically ameliorated or modified in some way; ten centuries ago our predecessors took bad corn and crossed these to create diverse sorts of corn mixtures so they could collect them better. It has been argued (Ronald 2015) that the ancient Greeks expounded on uniting - connecting the stem of one plant to the bases of another. The particular abilities of modern Transgenic modification were developed and produced in California four decades ago. Genetically modified food (GM food) is food that have had particular changes brought into their DNA using the techniques of genetic engineering. The hereditary change of farming plants and domesticated animals stretches back to the beginning of agribusiness. Transgenic …show more content…
After four decades of commercial use in medicine, industrial food and agriculture and after two decades of scientific study by thousands of independent researcher not funded by major companies – every major scientific institution in the world seeing GM food as safe (Funk and Rainie 2015). In addition, around almost 40 years contrary to the claims of these opposed to GM food, there have not been any registered cases of such causing cancer or any other diseases. Besides, there are a significant use of genetic engineering in health sector such as allergy to wheat and other grains. Transgenic engineering provide a cure for the world by harnessing natural tool and it is the guide line research for improvement the treatment of serious disease confronting the world. Furthermore, in the USA, GM products get investigation from a different government agencies in which they undergo various safety survey in all stages of production in comparison with non GM food. This safety record is sponsored by a wide scope of international scientific organisations such as the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, and the World Health Organisation. All of them certify GM food as safe. Overall, Human health is not achievable unless satisfaction measures of nutritious and safe food are accessible throughout life
