Transcript of "Genetically modefied organis xd"

  1. 1. GENETICALLY MODEFIED ORGANISM<br />PREPARED BY;<br />JOVY L. BERNAL<br />BSED 1-C<br />
  2. 2. Introduction;<br /> A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically engineered organism (GEO) is anorganism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These techniques, generally known as recombinant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources, which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferred into an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms which have inserted DNA that originated in a different species.<br />
  3. 3. Prove:<br />ADVANTAGES<br />DIFFERENT REASON AS FOLLOWS:<br />More informed customers, because they need to make more informed decisions in regard to nutrition, agriculture and science.<br />Less pesticide is needed to be used due to insect pest resistant plants.<br />More economically friendly as pesticides do not go into the air, soil, and water (especially freshwater supplies). Their production hazards to the environment also decreases.<br />Decrease in costs of growing and farming, due to the reduced use of pesticides<br />Higher crop yields.<br />Farmers have more income, which they could spend on such things as, for example, the education of their children.<br />Less deforestation needed to feed the worlds growing population (UN projections say that the world population will reach 8.15 billion compared to 6.18 billion in year 2000). This decreases carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which in turn slows global warming<br />
  4. 4. Decrease in food prices due to lower costs and higher yield. As people in poor countries spend over half of their income on food alone, lower food prices mean an automatic reduction of poverty.<br />Less starvation in the world due to decreased food prices.<br />More nutritious. This has been proven and tested many times.<br />Rigorous testing of ALL GMO crops and products. This makes GMOs much safer than organic (the traditional) crops.<br />ALL GMOs that are sold in the market, due to the strict tests. If the slightest chance of health hazard, a GMO is NOT allowed to enter the markets.<br />Strict and very complex standards that GMOs have to fully meet.<br />More thoroughly understood crops due to the rigorous testing..<br />Scientific development of agriculture, health and related sciences due to the better understanding of the products. For example, the development of new medicines.<br />Creation of “super foods” due to better knowledge. Super foods are types of food that are cheap to produce, grow fast in large quantities, highly nutritious.<br />New products. For examples, scientist identified the gene responsible for caffeine in coffee beans; by excluding this gene, decaffeinated coffee beans can be grown naturally.<br />Reduction of sicknesses and illnesses, as GMO crops are more nutritious. Vitamins and minerals can be provided to children and to people, where they were inaccessible before (i.e.: the world’s poorest and/or most secluded areas).<br />Developments of new kinds of crops that can be grown at extreme climates, for example, dry or freezing environments (like deserts). For example, scientist developed a type of tomato that grows in salty soil.<br />Reduction of world starvation due to increased production<br />
  5. 5. As more crops (plants) can be grown and at more places, this decreases global warming through the increase of oxygen in the environment, decreasing the proportion of carbon dioxide. GM crops have also made significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by over 10 million tones. This is equivalent to removing five million cars from the road every year. In effect this means that people would have to choose between growing GMOs and giving up their vehicles.<br />Many Nobel Prize winners and prominent scientists support genetically modified crop research and production.<br />Enhancement of the taste of food.<br />Enhancement of the quality of food.<br />Beside humans, livestock and animals are also beneficiaries to the higher nutritious value of GMO crops. They have an increased resistance, productivity, and hardiness.<br />Enhancement of the smell of food.<br />Decrease of maturation time of the plants, so they can be harvested sooner and more often during the year.<br />With time, possible customization of food to meet personal preferences.<br />Enhancement of the size of food.<br />Higher resistance to diseases.<br />Less processing needed in factories.<br />Less factory additives needed.<br />GMO crops last longer. This decreases the amount of wasted crops and foods.<br />
  6. 6. <ul><li>Reduced energy needs to produce GMO crops.
  7. 7. Less machinery requirements.
  8. 8. Due to reduced costs of production, prices can be further reduced.</li></ul>Production of friendly bioherbicides and bioinsecticides through genetic engineering.<br />Less labor requirements.<br />Experts estimate more than 1 trillion meals containing ingredients from biotech crops have been consumed over the last decade with no reliable documentation of any food safety issues for people or animals.<br />Genetically modified foods and crops are recognized by experts and regulatory authorities worldwide as being as safe as crops and foods.<br />People who are opposed to GMOs are not the farmers themselves, but people who can afford to buy food.<br />The needs of some consumers for GMO-free products lead to non-GMO labeling issues.<br />
  9. 9. CONCLUSION;<br />Societies are still in search of the economics system that will solve the problem of human survival w/ efficiency and fairness , society needs a new way on how to increase the food or crops her in this world w/c will entail the minimum effort , sacrifice and cause of society . On the other hand , they distribute the foods production equitability to the larges number of people.<br /> But this is an imperfect world. how can we solve the problem w/out newly and advance technologist ,or way to produce food production as pass we wanted and to stop scarcity of the world, because of our population where in every hour the population is increasing of so many children born all over the world than decreasing few person who died in the hour everywhere in this world. <br />
  10. 10. Do you think we can solve that problems in natural ways if our agricultural lands are now turning into subdivision because of the fast growth of population? No, for example in our country that population is increasing there is more subdivision than agricultural lands if you say yes! You’re a liar, why? because how can we solve our major problem if we don’t have enough land to crops. Because of that great number of Filipinos mostly in rural areas , are unable to attain the food threshold for a healthy and productive life. More over an even greater numbers of Filipinos are living below the poverty threshold. So for that information can we still say no to come? be practical and think the very since of having GMO . We know that GMO has/have disadvantages like it is harmful but think and go deeper on that true essence of GMO. This is the solution to the problem of the people who are unable to attain the food threshold. <br />
  11. 11. Not only solution to hunger but the other advantages of GMO Is useful like less the machinery equipment and less labor equipment. This reduce the cost of production prices can be further reduce, this decrease the maturation of plants so they can be harvested sooner and more often during the year. More economics friendly reduction of sickness and illness as GMO crops are more nutrition, the farmer have more income. this increase the oxygen w/c we need that are just some of the advantages of GMO that we really need to solve the problem of human survival. I state the important of GMO are still going to tell no GMO ? so say yes!!!!! to GMO.<br />
