Genetically modified (GM) has not been deemed safe for humans or the environment. There are a number of reasons which a growing number of people are against genetically modified foods. Are GM foods safe? The reason resist the growth of genetically modified foods in our diet is that it has a negative impact on our environment, in organically grown plants and animals not to disturb their genetic structure.
And in the race to speed the production of food genetically modified, scientists are testing methods to cut short. Recently, the U.S. University Medical School attended Tufts to test the effects of genetically modified rice in children directly (bypassing the usual animal testing). This direct evidence of children created a controversy and an official letter of protest of 22 internationally renowned scientists at the university, the letter of protest was made public through various media.
The letter of protest to the use of children as a violation of ethics Code of children who care and can not legally give consent (and is not regarded as informed consent) to participate in experiences. As Professor David Schubert, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, said: "… it is completely immoral to such supply of rice for the children, without adequate safety testing … [I] s that bring a new drug to market without the toxicology tests security. "
Defending his position, the organization issued golden rice a press release stating that "… We [do] the Chinese correctly and the U.S. government has approved the process, trials in China last year was ahead with the approval Formal parents and children's understanding. "How children understand the impact of genetically modified foods are themselves or the environment? It is a complex issue that many adults have difficulty understanding. Besides, how can we (parents, children, or scientific evidence) to understand what are the long-term effects of genetically modified "golden rice" has been found in the human body without prior study or test?
More important, the general risks of GM foods time more than the supposed benefits? Farmers across the plants and animals for hundreds of years to improve its products. Improvements size, to ensure the performance, taste, resistance has been achieved through natural resources and respect within this nature, different species have not been raised together.
With the discovery of DNA and the extraction method genes, the concept of genetic modification is born. The intention of the genetic modification is to create foods that is growing rapidly, As for revenue, is resistant to pests, diseases and other natural events. However, many scientists respond that the benefits do not outweigh the Risk, genetically modified foods modified often become resistant to herbicides and pesticides that require increasing quantities. There is the suspicion (Not proven) that the bees were pollinating concerned by the increasing use of these chemicals and that the two species of predators and pollinators have been affected by GM crops (also known as transgenic crops) through the destruction habitats and the use of herbicides and pesticides.
Since the introduction of GM foods, scientists report that the disease related to food has increased. The only published study confirmed that the human consumption of GM soybean germplasm amended transferred into the DNA of gut bacteria and remained operational. What long term impact of these foods are available for population and the environment? There are many more potential in the development of genetically modified foods. The animals were fed GM modified foods seemed to suffer from increased fetal mortality, low birth weight, infertility, and more. Problem is that the reproductive failure of infertility and sterility of the man or long-term consequences will be the use of genetically modified foods.
In the U.S., the Department of Agriculture reports for cotton and maize have been genetically modified to produce its own Bt toxins since 1996. Update on Bt crops are insecticidal crystal proteins and are considered effective against caterpillars damage crops. Toxins are considered important for pest control and resistance to herbicides and pesticides is becoming Moreover, the feeling is that these transgenic Bt toxins help protect crops. The problem is that GM Bt toxins are considered allergens serious you ever wondered what are so many children and adults with allergic reactions than ever?
The problem with food GM is that it is also a reaction to the action, unfortunately, in the world, in the race to push the supply food, we have not taken enough time to test and study the effects of long-term effects of genetically modified foods. It is easy to be against GM food – our planet is in danger.
