Lycopene is soluble in fat and synthesized by plants and microorganisms. Regular intake of lycopene containing food reduces the risk of body tumor especially prostate cancer, studies have shown that the antioxidants vitamin E, selenium, and lycopene all reduces risk of prostate cancer. Therefore, it would say that lycopene is very important for cancer prevention, it also reduces LDL cholesterol and cardiovascular diseases. It is a carotenoid and gives red colour to vegetables and fruits. Lycopene in processed foods is mainly in the form of the isomers.
Another common misconception is that the pesticides used in organic farming are safer, just because they are natural. That is not necessarily true. When compared to other naturally occurring pesticides, the residues of synthetic pesticides were shown to have lower levels of cancer promoting substances called
The fact that GMOs allows scientists to create products that are disease resistant and give scientists the ability to infuse them with various nutrients is an amazing feat. Not only that but GMOs can also solve the agricultural problems the world faces today such as soil salinity. Even though there are countless benefits to GMOs few disadvantages exist that can be simply overlooked since they are clearly under-weighed by the various advantages GMOs
• GM cops mostly tastes better than regular crops due to flavour enhancing genes Crystal Lombardo. (2015). Disadvantages of genetically modified crops: (Source one) • Cross contamination of pollen from modified plants can contaminate surrounding grass and weeds, thus giving them the same resistance as the crops. This can create an issue of overgrown areas of grasses and weeds. • Antibiotic resistance is also lessening, as antibiotic properties are inserted into crops.
People in industrialized countries realize that there are more benefits than harm from science and understand that enhanced quality of life depends on scientific knowledge. Genetic engineering is an example of the main topic being debated through bioethics, genetic engineering is the modification of the characteristics of an organism by manipulating its genetic material. The way we use technology is mostly a benefit, we are able to create healing techniques and medicines for our benefit, we also have improved crops to help better the environment and nurture us. One of the dangers is manipulating the genetic material and that is where people perceive it as unethical because some people believe that we should not interfere with nature. Humans have long been removed from natural selection, which has had us to gradually take control of our environment and allowed weaker genes to flourish because of medical advances.
Therefore, reducing ruminal methane production is not only improves the efficiency of nutrient utilization but also helps to protect the environment from warming. Manipulating the rumen microbial ecosystem to reduce methane emission by ruminants to improve their performance are important issues for animal nutritionists. There is a need to reduce methanogensis by promoting a shift in fermentation pattern towards appropriate metabolic production as well as most economic and long term effective without making an adverse effect on animal and consumers. Inhibition of ruminal CH4 production may improve the efficiency of ruminal fermentation as well as decreasing the atmospheric concentration of a greenhouse
We might be luckier than someone else that we are not affected by the desertification but if we keep doing the harmful things to the environment, we will face the consequences in the future so the priority thing that we should do is together prevent the desertification. The most effective way to prevent desertification is afforestation which can protect the soil against its degradation and reduce the air pollution that affect to the climate change. The benefits from afforestation are amazing, when we plant more trees we can maintain the vegetative cover to protect soil from wind and water erosion. In addition, it provides the storage of carbon, reducing air temperature, raising humidity, stimulating the exchange of air, filtering suspended particles and dust, and reducing gaseous pollution. For all these advantages, we can protect our lands from desertification and control the climate change as well.
Also GMO can be made to be more nutritional and be modified to grow in harsh conditions which will be very beneficial in places in places such as Africa where the soil is not the best. At first I was against the production of GMOs as I was only exposed to the negative points. But after conducting research on GM foods I have changed my view pint. The advantages of GMOs have been very beneficial and products, such as Golden Rice have been accomplished its goals in improving and enhancing people’s health. GMOs are a way the human race can feed the growing population and help combat many diseases, like the soybeans vaccines, and help fight malnutrition.
The environmental impact of agriculture involves a variety of factors from the soil, to water, the air, animal and soil diversity, people, plants, and the food itself. The only solution to solve the environmental problems is to be environmentally friendly. You should know from where to begin with becoming more environmentally friendly .people should be more aware of what they are causing of harm to our environment; they should start making some differences and some changing. Being environmentally friendly simply means having a lifestyle that is better for the environment. To be more peaceful and have a healthy life it is necessary to have a clean environment.
Using chitosan as a food preservative allows for reuse of this waste, making its use environmentally beneficial; while also reasonably cheap and cost-effective in production and usage. - Its biodegradability also allows chitosan biofilms to be beneficial to the environment. - The chitosan film has antibacterial and antifungal properties, meaning that it ultimately prolongs shelf-lives of the foods which it coats. - As chitosan film is a polysaccharide which physically coats the food product, it offers the advantage of being edible,
