Genetically modified (GM) foods have the potential to improve human health in the developing world. The genetic modification of food is a bioethics issue, due to the concerns raised when a foods physiognomies are altered to benefit the human race. Despite this, a food’s characteristics can be GM to become a vehicle for vaccines and a higher vitamin content, slowing the spread of diseases and thus improving human health. Furthermore, plants that are GM to be pest-resistant will cause a decrease in biological magnification. Finally, plants with increased tolerance to the environment will ensure a sustainable and reliable food supply. As genetic engineering involves altering the genetic structure of a plant, it creates a controversial issue; however, Nina Fedoroff, an American biotechnologist argues that “genetic modification is the basis of all evolution,” hence; food can be genetically modified so it contains the necessary genes and cells to ensure the health of a nascent community
Genetically modified foods are a solution to solving the developing world’s health crisis.
A food’s composition could be genetically modified to act as a vehicle for vaccines and vitamins, thus improving the health of the developing world. Developed countries have undergone an "epidemiologic transition" from infectious to degenerative diseases, however; developing countries do not have the access to vaccines to be able to achieve this transition
To combat this, GM foods such as corn could deliver…
