    This paper will identify the purpose of the genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and will explain how GMOs are made. Since the 1980s, more research and technology has pushed for further use of GMOs in crops. During this time, the United States has mostly used GMOs in crops such as soy, corn, cotton, and canola. I will cover the different uses of GMOs from the introduction of these alternations until the present uses of today’s advancement in gene duplicating technologies. In this paper, key questions such as, which foods in the supermarket use GMOs and are those foods safe for consumption will be clearly explained. It will also cover the different types of regulations that exist for the foods that contain GMOs. Using the article, “FDA’s Role…

    each of these has a center, which is called a nucleus. Inside every nucleus there are strands of DNA, half of which are inherited from the mother and the other half from the father. Short sequences/segments of this are called genes. Genes provide instructions for making proteins, and proteins determine the structure and function of each cell in the body. Because of this it results in the characteristics that an organism has and presents. According to the “Institute for Responsible Technology”…

    Would a person knowingly feed their family foods that are not safe for them, no! Foods should be left natural with no genetically modified organism (GMO). These are not natural and therefore is not healthy for the human body. The environment is being affected by processed foods that people are not aware of being processed, due to them not being labeled. It is destroying the society and human beings. There are not enough studies showing they are safe, they are not beneficial for the human body,…

    Avoiding Genetically Modified Organisms From the corn fields of Nebraska, to the food in your grocery store, to the dinner served at your favorite restaurant, Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO’s are in as much as 80% of processed foods in the US are eating (Paturel & Yamakawa, 2015).

    quite a bit of controversy surrounding the safety of transgenic organisms. Some people believe that bioengineered organisms and products are highly beneficial to our society and population in various ways, while others believe that the whole process in general is immoral and ultimately unsafe. We encounter transgenic organisms in our daily lives primarily through our food supply, and many issues with transgenic organisms are beginning to arise within the agricultural community because of this.…
