Medications are used to prevent diseases in the animals and testing is done to ensure that animals are disease free before products go to the consumer. Conventional farming is how most farms farm today because it is more economical for producers and consumers as produce can be produced on a bigger scale to supply global demand. Inorganic is much easier with fewer restrictions, quicker and cheaper to produce. The consumer also tends to steer towards inorganic products as they are easier to find, cheaper and sometimes more nutritional as vitamins have been added. Consumers also claim that it tastes better and has a longer shelf
However, we must learn to combine the benefits of both and fix the fix the hole we dug ourselves. Despite casing groundwater depletion, monocropping, and costing too much money, GMO farming is an efficient way to produce crops on a massive scale. Organic farming may be more susceptible to diseases and pest damage, but it is cheap and healthy which allows poor farmers to grow subsistence crops. It is hard to determine which type of farming is a better way of agriculture. Nonetheless, it is not hard to see the negative effects on the world that both types of agriculture leave.
Eating organic is outweighed by the damage that it caused. Supermarkets maybe more convenient for some people. However supermarkets use chemicals to keep their food from looking ugly. Supermarkets use chemicals that alter the physical characteristics of foods. The fact that they look nice does not mean they remain good.
Genetically Modified Organisms- Not as bad as you think Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are organisms that are engineered to improve the original organism. Even though genetically modified organisms are seen as harmful to people and the organism, they also improve the organism and can make it better. There are many benefits that most people don’t realize about genetically modified organisms, and I believe that GMOs are good for people, instead of bad. One example of how genetically modified organisms are helpful is that GMOs improve resistance to insects and generate healthier crops. Thus, it helps lower the risk of crop failure and makes crops more resilient to extreme weather (Mandel).
I do believe however, that the good outways the bad in this situation. Animal agriculture is something that this world depends on in order to continue human survival. Change starts with just a small group of people. In order to reduce the detrimental effects of animal agriculture our human race is going to have to make a huge transition in our food system. With different solutions and trial and error changes can be made possible in the near
Food production has been a matter that has been disputed for years now because of the things that have been added to crops. While pesticide helps keep other organisms from taking crop harvest, it has also added chemicals into the food that we consume; chemicals that should not be inside of us. Genetic engineering would allow for the natural modification of food to provide DNA genes that can be used to act as a shield against pests and diseases. With the DNA modification of crops, there would be no need to
For years, the health and safety of genetically modified foods have been debated and researched by scientists, but the question still stands: should genetically modified foods be allowed for consumption? The process of genetic modification involves inserting a gene from bacteria or a virus into an organism where it would normally not be found. The purpose is to alter the genetic code in plants and animals to make them more productive or resistant to pests or farming techniques. Genetically modified organisms, more commonly known as GMOs, have been a controversial topic of debate for a number of reasons. The ethics behind genetically modified foods come into question due to an abundance of short and long-term effects from the process, many of which are still unknown today.
Genetically modified organisms help in improving crops, increase nutritious value in plants, increases its life, it has better resistance to diseases, drought or insect pests. I also agree to the fact that sometimes research and development are not done properly on Genetically modified organisms. We are not aware about the facts or figures of how much it is impacting humans. Consumption of GMO food is good or bad for human health. It needs some more time to reach humans for consumption.
What make humanity unique is we manipulate our environment, changing nature when nature doesn’t suit us. Historically, these changes have targeted elements we interact with. However, with the advent of genome mapping and editing, humans are now able to change ourselves, or more accurately, edit our genome. Right now, gene editing is being used for gene therapy, to either add, remove, or edit a gene in order to ensure a therapeutic effect in either a person or an embyro. Gene therapy is not ethically immoral and should be allowed, although proper clinical and regulatory constraints must be underdone.
Organic farming benefits food production without destroying our environmental resources, ensuring sustainability for not only the current but also future generations. Cultivation While their conventional counterparts may sow by direct drilling of seed into herbicide treated soils, organic farmers are usually at least partly dependent on cultivation to remove weeds prior to sowing. In contrast to cultivation, direct drilling does not mechanically disrupt soil structure and removes the risk of exposed soil being lost to wind or water erosion. This is a valid argument where farmers are working marginal quality soils. However, the structure of agrichemically-deadened soils is weakened by the corresponding loss of soil life and thus unable to maintain its integrity under occasional cultivation.
