  • Side Effects Of Genetically Modified Foods

    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…

  • Genetically Modified Foods Case Study

    Some environmental effects include introducing GM genes into the population, persistence of the gene, non-target organisms, stability of the gene, loss of biodiversity, and increased use of chemicals in agriculture (20 Questions on genetically modified goods, 2009). One environmental hazard to consider includes unintended harm to other organisms. Although Bt corn helps to kill pests that harm the crop, it is not possible to design a Bt toxin that would only kill crop-damaging pests and remain…
