  1. 1. An insight into Genetically Modified Food
  2. 2. Genetically Modified Foods: More lossthan innovation
  3. 3. The meaning of genetically modifiedfoodIt is ‘genetically modified’ meaning the geneshave been altered and changed. The foods, inthis process, are developed using geneticallymodified organisms (GMO). The organismsmeet with specific changes into their DNAwhich are not introduced naturally. Thetechnique is also referred as ‘genetechnology’ and ‘modern biotechnology’.
  4. 4. The habit of using genetically engineered food is onthe rise, since it was first marketed in 1996 becauseof the many perceived values, some of whichnecessarily include the following:  Pest resistance  Disease control
  5. 5.

  6. 6. Disease controlFungi, bacteria and different viruses present inthe air affect the plants by exposing them to arange of diseases. Genetically engineeredplants however can grow without necessarilybeing affected by most of these diseases.
