Brown ENGL 101 2 August 2015 GMO: Introduction A genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or genetically modified food can be defined as organisms that have their DNA altered by biotechnological procedures. These procedures make genetic manipulations in organism by transferring the genes from one organ to the other in order to get a desired result. The results from gene alterations give characteristics that the original food do not have at the first place.

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]
