  11. 11. “The genetic modification of plants and animals through domestication and controlled breeding has gone on with little debate for roughly 10,000 years. But since 1973, genetic modification has also been possible through the transfer of isolated genes into the DNA of another organism. This type of genetic engineering—also known as<br />genetic transformation, transgenesis, or simply GM—is a more powerful and more precise method of modifying life” (Paarlberg, 2000, p. 25).<br />http://www.dinegreen.com/<br />

  20. 20. “If properly exploited, the GM crop revolution will have life changing— and even life-saving—implications in developing countries. Food-production requirements are increasing rapidly in the tropics due to population growth. Yet agriculture there is lagging, in part because of poor soil; extremes of moisture, heat, and drought; and a plenitude of pests and diseases that attack animals and crops. Poor farmers in tropical Asia and Africa currently lose much of their crop production every year (often more than 30 percent) to insects and plant disease” (Paarlberg, 2000, pp. 30 – 31).<br />http://www.tylermcpeak.com<br />
