The objective of this report is to recommend the widespread use of genetically modified food to feed a large population, instead of organic food.
Problem
As the world’s population grows and its agriculture industry diminished there is a concern with how the world would be fed, either with organic food or genetically modified food. In recent years technological advancement in biotechnology and genetic engineering allows for the rapidly growing use of genetically modified food, specifically crops.
