But opponents for GMO continue to fight and protest the safety of any GMO’s and are we truly ready for them, currently agricultural plants are one of the most frequently used examples of genetically modified organisms, some benefits of genetic engineering in agriculture are increased crop yields, which advocates believe will reduced the costs of food and reduce the need for pesticides. They also believe that they enhance the nutrient composition of food quality and is resistance to pests and disease, many feel that using GMO’s can benefit the world 's growing
Organic farming uses techniques in which the nutrients exerted from the produce is retained in the surrounding environment, thus cutting down on soil erosion, water pollution, and carbon pollutions in the air. In addition to these benefits, turning towards organic farming also results in more job opportunities as the field continues to grow, improving the economy. Like Ann Wigmore stated before, society as whole can either significantly impact their lifestyles by wither choosing to improve their eating habits, or they could live in denial as they slowly poison themselves to death. The choice is in their hands. Going organic is an easy decision to make in order to improve the health of the population, the environment and climate around, and the economy.

Genetically modified organisms in the foods that are being produced today have no harm on humans or animals. They help the producers of the leading industry in the world create a more efficient way of doing business along with feeding the world. The population will never stop growing and agriculture will never stop. The agriculture industry will soon be 100 percent genetically modified foods because of the demand.
Genetic engineering produces foods of high quality and super foods that are less costly to produce grow rapid in large quantities and are vastly nutritious in micronutrients. This means that they have the ability to feed the growing population that is set grow to13billion by 2020. Genetic engineering in the agricultural sector has to a large extent lead to the modification of crops so that they can have superior agronomic characteristics s... ... middle of paper ... ...different seasons. • There are continuous tests carried out on genetically modified foods meaning that the food supplied in the market is healthy of great quality. The agricultural productivity gains in third world countries have significant impacts on the final poverty levels as there is universal increase in agricultural activities.
Genetically modified organisms are created through specific laboratory techniques of combining different plant genes to create a clone to farming efficiency. (Smith, Jeffrey) Scientists use cloned plants to create crops resistant to disease and parasites, increasing its yield and ability to thrive in harsh conditions. (Wasserman,Robin) With the rapid expansion of the population in the United States less suitable farm land has become available, resulting in a nation wide food shortage in the near future. Genetically Modified Crops give a solution to a steady food supply, however the health risks involved are unknown, providing a risk factor for the health of millions of Americans. “Biotechnology companies and “agri-business giants” claim that using technology and synthetics is the only way we can hope to supply our world population.” (Om Organics) With a growing num... ... middle of paper ... ...ered foods.
genes in corn and other crops. “B.t., or Bacillus thuringiensis, is a naturally occurring bacterium that produces crystal proteins that are lethal to insect larvae.” The active protein genes of B.t. are transferred into corn, allowing the corn to produce its own pesticides (Whitman). Due to advancements like this, experts in the United States have acclaimed genetically modified foods as the “food of the future” and as a tool to substantially reduce hunger in poorer countries (Laros and Steenkamp 1).

According to the article, one of the most common problems with the current nutrition of the world is “Anemia”, also called Iron Deficiency. By further investigating biotechnology, scientists could find some way to alter foods to increase iron levels to a more healthy range for today’s society. One of the biggest successes in plant biotechnology is the number of plants capable of manufacturing an insecticide protein encoded by a gene isolated from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Having this protein leads to the death of the insects that destroy crop plants. Conventional pesticides do not work as well due to various things, such as the insects becoming immune to the conventional pesticide or finding ways inside the plant around the pesticide.
GMOs are crop resistance as well, so the amount of production increases which means that more food is available for the populated countries like United States. the resistance of crops helps farmers as well because they are able to eliminate one of the hardest part of the production which is spraying the herbicides. GMOs are found to be very nutritious because ... ... middle of paper ... ...owever the con for this career is that it is very challenging to prove these powerful corporation and break into their lies.another possible career is Research Scientists who primarily plan to conduct and analyze the experiments, collect data and release it in article to the public this career is very important in GMO labeling policy because through our research we have found out that the public is not educated solely because there are not adequate researches done in order to prove that GMO can harm the environment. This career will be very challenging since many of the experiment tend to take a long time to be proved, as the researches have to focus on different groups of people,animals, and regions in order to collect a correct data. especially if the focus is on the possible hazard of GMO in the environment for the future.
It is only in a fairly new stage but it is believed that these positive outcomes from genetically modifying food outweigh the concerns and risks. As said before millions of people have been consuming genetically modified foods and have no side effects. This has the potential to have a huge affect on the world we live in like saving world poverty. This is the new DNA Technology of the 21st century. Let’s take this opportunity to benefit from it.
Today we currently live in a world that is constantly changing and advancing due to the many beneficial inventions of technological advancements, especially in the wide-ranged field of different molecular genetics. Scientists are always discovering and implementing new ways to help benefit society and our future generation through enhanced food products. Consumers should be informed of how these foods are becoming a great help to those in need. Genetically modified foods should be perceived as an advantage to either the producer or consumer of these foods through a lower price, posssibility eliminating world starvation, and greater benefit in terms of durability and the increased improvement of crop production. As we all know, food has always been an important essential in our lives and is abundant as well as relatively easy to obtain here in the United States.
