Genetically Modifying Food - The science of genetically modifying food first came about in the 1980s. Since then, the process of taking a common crop and changing its DNA to better suit the needs of its producers or those who process it has exploded. Almost any product you see in the supermarket contains some ingredient that is genetically modified (GM). The utility of the technology is vast, but there are those who caution against such swift replacement of natural foods for GM ones. Their possible detriments to the human condition are, for the most part, untested (at least long term) and thus many people do not feel comfortable eating them....   [tags: Genetic Modification]

What´s a Genetically Modified Organism - A genetically modified organism is an organism whose genetic material has been changed by working with genetic engineering methods. Organisms that have been genetically modified may be microorganisms like bacteria and yeast, insects, plants, fish and mammals. Because living organisms have real restrictions to protect themselves against the exposure of DNA from a un similar species, genetic engineers have to find new methods to cause the DNA from an organism into a different organism. One way of genetically modifying organisms is using viruses or bacteria to "infect" animal or plant cells with the different DNA....   [tags: pest resistance, microorganisms] 711 words

This relatively modern technology gives scientists the ability to change and swap the DNA make-up of any species.

Another reason we should stop altering food is that no long-term tests have been done to see what side affects could occur, and in tests that have shown negative results these results are disregarded by the...   [tags: Genetically Engineered Foods]
