Genetically Engineered Food

Abstract
This paper argues the production of genetically engineered food which is a radical approach to dealing with preferred food in an unnatural selection process. Genetically engineered food causes harm to environmentally beneficial insects, water supply, and food. The biotechnology companies are responsible for producing enhanced crops causing creation of feasible toxins, diseases, and weaknesses. Furthermore, genetically engineered food raises questionable ethics on whether or not the modification of one living organism should be incorporated into another. Assertions are made for malfunction of genetically modified food. There are noted concerns regarding genetically modified foods and that the 'green revolution' refutes that. In the paper, the approach is to clearly convey the subject through reasonably supportive evidence.

Genetic engineering is copying individual genes to another living organism to alter its genetic makeup, thereby incorporating or deleting specific characteristics into or from the organism, according to the doctors: Sereana Dresbach, Holly Flax, Amanda Sokolowski and John Allred (2001) from the University of Ohio State. Genetic engineering has the power to change who we are through science, which is extremely controversial. The production of genetically engineered food is considered a radical approach to dealing with preferred food in an unnatural selection process. Genetically engineered food causes harm to environmentally beneficial insects, water supply, and food. The biotechnology companies are responsible for producing enhanced crops causing creation of feasible toxins, diseases, and weaknesses. Furthermore, genetically engineered food raises questionable ethics on whether or not the modification of one living organism should be incorporated into another. Genetic modification of food can make crops look bigger, luscious, and richer in appearance. The problem with polishing up the appearance is...
