Essay on The Problem Of Genetically Modified Food
The worlds’ population is continuously growing at a rapid rate, with in that it is estimated that 9.6 billion people are expected to be living on the earth by 2050. Even now with over 7 billion mouths to feed the food industry is struggling and is constantly being put under immense pressure to produce enough food to feed us and the issue is only exacerbating as the population continues to increase in size.
- What is the solution/possible solutions?
However, there is a resolution to fix the problem. The most current effective and efficient solution to this dilemma is Genetically Modified Food (GE). Genetically modified organisms is the genetic material (DNA) from plants, microorganisms and animals that has been reformed in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or from natural recombination. (Downs, 2016). It is excellent in producing an increase of crops every year and making profits over loss and can be used in various ways to provide the population with the amount and quality of food that we need in a more resourceful way.
Paragraph 1- What is agriculture? Introduce genetic modification in detail including organic vs pesticides. Agriculture is the science and profession involved with growing crops, cultivating land as well as feeding and breeding livestock and produce (Collins, 2016). It has been used for thousands of year to produce food in our growing population. So as we advance it is vital to find a sustainable…
