OMG, GMOs! The Risks + Benefits of Genetically Modified Food
The Pros and Cons of GMOs
The Nobel Prize is named after a scientist, Alfred Nobel, who established the prizes in his will in Alfred Nobel is famous for inventing dynamite. However, he mistakenly believed that his invention would bring about a more peaceful world. In fact, his invention led to the development of many modern tools of war. Dynamite is a technological advancement that led to the deaths of many people. However, technological advancements have not exclusively made the world a worse place.
Opening the lines of communication between research scientists and the wider community
At the same time, the introduction of genetically engineered crops had little apparent influence on the rate at which agricultural productivity was increasing over time. In the future, the academy said, researchers and regulators should be sure to evaluate the safety and efficacy of specific crops, rather than focus on potential risk posed by the process of modifying the plants. - Many of the genetically modified foods will be safe, I'm sure. Will most of them be safe?
About 90 percent of all soy is genetically modified GMO. Soy is also one of the top seven allergens, and is widely known to cause immediate hypersensitivity reactions. While in the last forty years soy has occupied an important place in the transition from an unhealthy meat-based diet to vegetarian and vegan cuisine, it is time for us to upgrade our food choice to one having more benefits, and fewer negative possibilities. In , Stuart Berger, MD, placed soy among the seven top allergens - one of the "sinister seven. There doesn't seem to be any other way of creating the next green revolution without GMOs.
We have entered an era of genetically modified foods, which are just that — genetically mutated foods that are not necessarily better for you. The health implications not only to humans but also to the environment is a hotly contested debate; the introduction of genetically altered food could have serious consequences, such as allergic reactions and increased resistance to certain antibiotics. Two of the prime targets for genetic engineering — soy and corn — are America's cash crops. Genetically modified GM foods may look and feel the same as conventional foods, but they are drastically and possibly harmfully different. These types of foods have been altered by taking the genetic material DNA from one species and transferring it into another in order to obtain a desired trait. The FDA does not require any safety testing or any labeling of GM foods, and introducing new genes into a fruit or vegetable may very well be creating unknown results such as new toxins, new bacteria, new allergens, and new diseases.
