  2. 2. Scientists believe that over the course of evolutionary history, viruses have acted as genetic material they pick up from individual or organism and inserting it into another.<br />
  3. 3.
  4. 4. A genetically modified organism (GMO) or genetically modified engineered organism (GEO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.<br />
  5. 5. Advantages of GMO <br />
  6. 6. 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 />
  7. 7. 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 />
  8. 8. The needs of some consumers for GMO-free products lead to non-GMO labeling issues.<br />Less machinery requirements.<br />Due to reduced costs of production, prices can be further reduced.<br /> Less machinery requirements.<br />
  9. 9. Due to reduced costs of production, prices can be further reduced.<br />Production of friendly bioherbicides and bioinsecticides through genetic engineering<br />Higher resistance to diseases.<br />
  10. 10. Less factory additives needed.<br />GMO crops last longer. This decreases the amount of wasted crops and foods.<br />Reduced energy needs to produce GMO crops.<br />
  11. 11. Many Nobel Prize winners and prominent scientists support genetically modified crop research and production.<br />Enhancement of the taste of food.<br />
  12. 12. 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 />
  13. 13. Decrease of maturation time of the plants, so they can be harvested sooner and Moore often during the year.<br />With time, possible customization of food to meet personal preferences.<br />
  14. 14. 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 />
  15. 15. Enhancement of the size of food.<br />Reduction of world starvation due to increased production.<br />Enhancement of the size of food.<br />
  16. 16. Enhancement of the quality of food.<br /><ul><li>Less processing needed in factories.</li></li></ul><li>NO<br />
  17. 17. YES<br />
