People in a comfortable position must contribute extensively to eradicate Poverty only then will the world become a better place to live in.
There is a severe shortage of food in African countries, people die in the Dark Continent because of this shortage of food, genetically modified food is really......?
There is immense turbulence in the food industry because of the adverse effects of the genetically modified foods on human body, their minimal nutritional value... Critical review on the paper "Evaluation of the sensitization rates and identification of Ig E-binding components in wild and genetically modified potatoes in patients with allergic disorders" The ABIC Manifesto, in large extend, explains the necessity of genetically modified (GM) foods.
With the growth of the human population, which is "estimated to reach 9 billion by 2040, and with the small but steady decrease of agricultural land (around 70 000 km2 annually)"3, the GM food plants seem like the most effective measure to counter these problems.
Some are also concerned about the effect it has on the environment and the local economies and most importantly on the biodiversity. 4-5) The ongoing debate on whether these foods will stay in the market or will become an extinct cannot be answered directly but the present scenario is marked with the escalation in the demand of these foods throughout the world economy.
The Genetically modified food (GMF) has been readily adopted and accepted in the United States which still persists to grow since its appearance in the market.Hence they have to be carefully monitored, as the outcome of transgene effect is still not predicted.Apprehension has also been expressed as to whether there is a possibility of allergic reaction due to the consumption of the genetically modified food.Advantages As the world population is poised to double to 12 billion by 2050, GM food is widely expected to meet the challenges by : 1.Better pest-resistance, by reducing the requirement of insecticides and herbicides, thus increasing food yield naturally by reducing losses. Better adaptation to weather and soil conditions : At present crop yields are often lowered by cold weather, droughts and salinity of......There is also a fear of possibility that the living bacteria which are present in the human gut may gain resistance to the antibiotics due to the presence of the marker genes in the transgenic plants. 91) Now the question arises how the consumers have accepted the genetically modified food.There are two opposing viewpoints regarding this, According to the industry leaders the consumer accept these foods because there has been a willingness from the public to consume it.This also reduces the reliance on harmful and dangerous pesticides.But it has to be admitted as well that till date much has not been known about these foods and hence it is justifiable when some express their concerns about the effect of the food on the health of the animal and human.“The first commercial food product developed from gene slicing (a term for a type of genetic modification) was the Flavr Savr tomato.” (Schneider and Schneider).The tomato was produced through the concept of genetic modification where it could naturally ripen on the vine and could be firm enough to withstand the shipping after it is harvested.
