ETHICS AND SCIENCE
ETHICS AND GMFSHORT DEFINITION OF GMF Genetically modified foods are foods derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). GMOs have had their DNA genetically changed by genetic engineers. Scientists first discovered that DNA can transfer between organisms in 1946. The first genetically modified plant was produced in 1983, using an antibiotic-resistant tobacco plant.
ETHICS AND GMFSHORT DEFINITION OF GMF In 2000, with the creation of golden rice, scientists genetically modified food to increase its nutrient value for the first time This is made to improve the production in this crops and also to change for example their nutrients so it can be healthier and make our meals more balanced.
ETHICS AND GMFETHICAL PROBLEMS WITH GMF The controversy in GMF is a dispute over the relative advantages and disadvantages in GMF. The key areas of controversy related to genetically modified GMF are: Risk of harm from GM food, The effect of GM crops on the environment, The impact of GM crops for farmers, including farmers in developing countries, The role of GM crops in feeding the growing world population,
ETHICS AND CLONINGSHORT DEFINITION OF CLONING Cloning is the process of producing similar populations of genetically identical individuals that occurs in nature when organisms reproduce asexually.
ETHICS AND CLONINGETHICAL PROBLEMS WITH CLONING The ethics of cloning refers to a variety of ethical positions regarding the practice and possibilities of cloning.
ETHICS AND MEDICINE The practice of medicine and the practise of ethics are inseparable; Every clinical decision invokes and ethical decision as well; In many instances the ethical issue may not be readily apparent.
