    Human consumption of genetically modified foods also known as GMOs are not safe. GMOs are where scientists modify the genome sequence of food to make the company 's products genetically superior to organic foods. Changing the genetic sequence of the plants will open up unexpected effects in the health of the human body that no one has ever predicted before. When one really look into the risk of consuming the mutated foods, one may start to think. Some of the thoughts that pop up into the mind of…

    the development of cancer in children. Although there are disagreements, many of the scientists have come to the conclusion that some forms of cancer have been the linked to genetic cells that are formed through fertilization of the embryo, which could be caused from the parents being exposed to different environmental pollution, carcinogens, which may also involve household chemicals for long periods(Moore, 2009, p. xx). Also, with a large amount of artificial sweetener (aspartame) ingested…

    Introduction Drosophila melanogaster can be considered model organisms for the study of genetics. Some characteristics that contribute to this status are their quick lifecycles, large amount of offspring, and the presence of only four chromosomes. Drosophila melanogaster contain bristles on the thorax, head, legs, and abdomen. These bristles are used as a sensory mechanism, allowing fruit flies to detect their surroundings as they fly and walk around their environment (Yehuda, 2011). The rate…

    which are obtained by inserting genes from high hydrocarbon producing micro algae into high growth seaweed species. Botryococcus braunii (BB) a green micro algae that produces large amounts of aliphatic hydrocarbon molecules is used as a source for genetic material. The genes that produce hydrocarbon in BB are identified, removed, cloned and subsequently inserted into high growth brown seaweeds like Kelp. The genetically modified kelp can be grown in coastal ocean waters. After the growth is…
