With the advances in genetics over the years, one area that has seen tremendous growth is the manufacturing of genetically modified food. Basically, science has found a way to modify the genome of plants to change them in many different ways. It has been estimated that as much as 90% of the food we eat in the US has been genetically modified. The genetically modified food debate has many pros and cons. On one hand, researchers are creating foods that are higher in nutrition and they are even making foods that contain vital vaccines for children in impoverished countries. They are also able to create drought-resistant and pest-resistant crops.
On the other hand, there is much concern about the effects that genetically modified food have on our bodies. I would love to hear your thoughts on this controversial subject.
