Applying GMOs to plant’s does have it’s perks, but not all people are for it. Many people ask the questions such as, “What do they do to my body?” “Are GMOs good or bad?.” Many people have found the good and bad about GMOs, and they have picked their sides on if we should use it or if we shouldn’t. I have done my research and I have picked my side. I have chosen to be for the idea of using GMOs on plants. The positive effects of using GMOs are greater than why we shouldn't use them.
THESIS INTRODUCTION Now a days Organic Farming has became very important in our life ,day by day we are introducing food in our body that we don 't even know from where is it or the way they were prepared. The food on supermarkets can have a lot of chemicals that can affect our organisms in short or even long term cases, that is why today I am going to talk about the pros,cons and the important of maintaining the organic farming going, so supermarkets/stores can offered us better food quality. What is Organic Farming? Organic Framing is the form of agriculture that uses different type of techniques such as crop rotation, biological pest control, etc. organic farming uses natural fertilizers and they don 't use any kind of pesticides that can modify the crop in any type of way,like in normal farms that genetically
Description: Most farming today is done through the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides but organic farming is a more sustainable option, and with some intelligent choices, can also feed the planet. Title: 10 Reasons Why You Should Be Organic Article: An ever increasing world population and the increasing demand for food to feed this growing population has led to agricultural practices that increasingly make use of artificial substances. Most farming today is done through the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides as it has long been assumed that natural or organic farming can no longer sustain the demand. While the jury is still out on the above debate, we believe that not only is organic based farming a more sustainable option and is better for us and the environment, but it can, with some intelligent choices, also feed the planet. Here are 10 reasons to say yes to organic: 1.
This essay will examine the benefits and drawbacks of genetically modified foods, emphasizing on public health, farmers’ production cost and the environmental impacts. To compare with the traditional edibles, GM foods are the food with better quality. Owing to the advanced technology, some useful features of a comestible can be transmitted through modifying genes. This means that nutrients are not restricted to the initial amount. Humans are possible to obtain a combination of essential nourishment which natural foods do not have (Barak, S., Mudgil, D., & Khatkar, B.S., 2010).
Advantages of genetically modified crops include: *Note Genetically modified is abbreviated as GM, and Genetically modified organism is abbreviated as GMO • GM crops are better for the environment due to the fact that crops are modified to become pest and disease resistant. This lessens the impact of spraying pesticides and chemicals which are toxic for the environment • GM crops are also disease resistant and drought tolerant, thus increasing overall production which can combat the hunger crisis. A bigger yield of crops also keeps prices low. • GM crops have enhanced nutritional value which can combat the issue of food deficiencies as products contain higher amounts of vitamins, calcium and protein. • GM crops also have a longer shelf life, which reduces food waste.
There are people who believe that by eating organic food, they are giving themselves better nutrition. However this nutritional value has been contested over the years. Recently, a research team from the Newcastle University has released findings that may give even more momentum to the booming organic food
INTRODUCTION OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED CROPS Genetically modified crops (GM crops or biotech crops) are crops which are produced by improving in DNA structure by genetic engineering methods. In this technique a new trait is introduced which are not naturally present in plants. They create resistant in crops from herbicide, environmental stresses n pests but also improves nutrition profiles of the crops. Farmers now a days adopting GM crops cultivation. On the basis of records, from 1995 to 2011, total surface area of land included for GM crops cultivation has been increase from 17,000 square acres to 1,600,000 square acres.
Nowadays the majority of the food that we purchase in the supermarket is genetically engineered, which means that these foods have genes from other plants or animals injected into their genetic codes. The goal of genetically engineered foods is to add one or more traits that are not already found in the organism or plant. Many people feel that genetically engineered food should be used because it comes with many benefits such as, it makes more nutritious, tastier food, and it increases the supply of food while reducing the cost of it. While others feel that genetically engineered food may have genetic changes that can be unsafe and harmful in the long run. I personally believe that genetically engineered foods should be used.
In recent years, the genetically modified foods are popular to the society. However, their several benefits and risks should be concerned as they have important impacts to human beings. According to World Health Organization, the genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are defined as organisms such as plants, animals or microorganisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating or natural recombination. The technology is often called ‘modern biotechnology’ or ‘gene technology’ and ‘recombinant DNA technology’ or ‘genetic engineering’. It allows selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another and between nonrelated species.
Studies have shown that the amount of nitrogen in organically grown vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables, has been found to be less compared to conventional ones. A review also found a lower concentration of cadmium in organic grains. Other researchers prove that using organic standards in farming increases the intake of antioxidants, without increased calories, and there is also a decrease in harmful pesticides and cadmium. They have proven that organic farming is different than local farming these are the key findings of the experiment: the production method affects the quality, more
