The transmission of hereditary traits to some extent has it’s molecular basis in the replication of DNA. The process of DNA replication produces numerous amounts of copies of genes that can be transferred/passed from the parent to the offspring. Animals and plants have specific cells that drive the inheritance of genes. These cell’s are called reproductive cell’s(gametes). Gametes transmit genes from one generation to the next.
The public should have the right to know what they are consuming. Genetically modified food can also increase human health risk and impact the environment negatively. The human population may be at risk if genetically modified foods are used around the world. “In 30 countries including [nations] in Europe, Japan and Australia, GMOs have been banned...or restricted significantly, due to safety concerns,” stated by Chris Kilham of Fox News , “...other nations are considering more aggressive restrictions against engineered food.” T... ... middle of paper ... ...fied food and improve the environment.

Daily numerous of health risk are being caused by genetically mortified organisms. The FDA should be abolished because it harms health, safety and the environment. “If genetically modified food on the market cause common disease, mild symptoms, or have long-term impact, we may never know. There’s no monitoring” (Genetically Modified Foods). Genetically modified organisms are unnatural foods made up by organisms and their DNA is changed by using genetic engineering.
Genetic engineering is a laboratory technique used by scientists to change the DNA of living organisms. DNA is the blueprint for the individuality of an organism. The organism relies upon the information stored in tits DNA for the management of every biochemical process. The life, growth and unique features of the organism depend on its DNA. The segments of DNA, which have been associated with specific features or functions of an organism, are called genes.
They have been debating if GMO’s will actually harm the environment or human health. Many GMO opponents worry that genetic engineering may transfer allergens molecule to which some people are allergic to. However the biotechnologists are already engaged in removing genes that encode allergenic proteins from soybeans and other crops. This brings me to the point where I could say that science do has its advantages and disadvantages
