Is it safe to eat? Genetically modified foods (or GM foods) are foods produced from organisms that have had specific and experimental changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic engineering. These new and introduced instructions basically allows the food/food crop to have the capability of performing things that can’t occur naturally. Most developed nations consider GMOs are safe, however there are a few possible risks in the process. This article will sum up your ideas and make you decide whether you’re for, against or dead centered.
I. GMO, or genetically modified organisms is when a gene of an organism is biologically transferred to another organism changing its characterization. (Diaz) A. According to BIONET, the process of engineering a crop goes as such: (BIONET) 1. First, the gene that is modified is isolated or mapped. (BIONET) 2.

Genetically Modified Organisms, are organisms that have been modified to possess certain traits. c. According to Fran Murrell (2014), a (GM) food activist published in the Australasian College of Nutritional and Medicinal Journal, stated that this modification takes place by modifying the DNA and introducing new genes from bacteria, viruses and plants. d. Also, it was further explained that G.M food are spreading very fast into the system. This was explained by Kyndra Lundquist, a J.D. candidate at the University of Iowa.
This case study will address the reasons Monsanto’s approach to increase crop production; roles of government in approving genetically engineered crops, and anti-biotech campaigns. What is a Genetically Modified Food (GMO)? GMO is known as the process of genetic modification involves inserting a gene from a virus or bacteria into an organism where it wouldn’t be found normally. Altering the genetic code in animals and plants will make them more productive or resistant to pests or farming

CHAPTER THREE DATA AND METHODOLOGY 3.0 Introduction This chapter 3 presents on the discussion of econometric methodology that will be employed throughout this study. For instance, augmented Dickey- Fuller unit root test (1979), Dickey- Fuller generalized least square unit root test, the modified ADF by Elliot et al. (1996), Johansen- Juselius Cointegration test (1990), Granger- causality test in vector error correlation (VECM) model and Diagnostic test. Each of the abovementioned econometric methods will be defined further in details. Entirely the methods were used to investigate the impacts of independent indicators towards agriculture production in Malaysia from year 1983 to 2013.
