HUMAN HELATH<br />The debate surrounding the human health of using<br />GM foods is growing increasingly complex, intense<br />and emotional.<br />
ADVANTAGES Vs. Disadvantages<br />AD: provide more nutrition than unmodified foods Such as the mineral, vitamin.<br />DisAD:Possible to cause an unexpected allergen <br />or allergic reaction in susceptible individuals <br />because of the foreign gene which was <br />introduced by GM project. <br />
Enverioment<br /> The environmental implications of producing GM products<br /> become a subject of much debate. <br />
ADVANTAGES Vs. Disadvantages<br />AD: Reduce agricultural wastes <br /><ul><li>Reduce the chemical pesticides
Reduce the herbicides</li></li></ul><li>ADVANTAGES Vs. Disadvantages<br />DisAD: <br /><ul><li>GM foods lead unintended harm to other organisms(eg. kill various of insect larvae indiscriminately),
GM foods result the non-target effects to the environment (eg. weeds would then be herbicide tolerant as well).</li></li></ul><li>Increasing food yield <br />Can VS. Can not <br />Against<br /> High Food Yield <br /> Low Food Yield<br />
Summary<br /> It can be seen that GM foods do have the potential to solve many of the world's hunger and malnutrition problems, and to help protect and preserve the environment by increasing yield and reducing reliance upon chemical pesticides and herbicides.<br />
