This will help reduce the pollutants being put in the air. Without funding for genetic engineering, the world would never have known about the good things, such as this maize.

Genetic modifications in medicine could make it more available and everyone could get vaccines, even people that are scared of needles. While some say it is unethical, studies show that genetic engineering would give hope for a better
