1.1Genetically modified foods are organisms that have been introduced to a new DNA structure due to the modern biotechnology. Genetically modified foods are often made by a breeder who wants to exchange genes between two plants to produce an offspring with the desired specification. However this process take a long time to achieve and to get the desired results. GM crops are made through the process known as genetic engineering. Genes of Specific traits are transferred from one organism to another. There are two primary methods to produce GM crops the first one includes coating the DNA that wants to be introduced to the plant into tiny particles, this method is called “Gene Gun”. The second method uses a bacterium to introduce the gene(s) of interest into the plant DNA.

In this example I will be discussing the advantages and the disadvantages of golden rice.

Golden rice is hereditary adjusted rice that now contains a lot of A-vitamins. More accurately, the rice contains the component beta-carotene which is changed over in the body into Vitamin-A. So when you eat golden rice, you get more vitamin A.
Beta-carotene gives carrots their orange shading and is the motivation behind why genetically modified rice is golden. For the golden rice to make beta-carotene three new qualities are embedded: two from daffodils and the third from a
