What's your opinion on genetically engineering food?
They can have harmful effects on the human body BUT it can grow faster than the traditional version which would then mean there's more food but also can grow at different seasons and climate's. If it was to become that the majority of food is genetically engineered then there should be a law that it says it on the packet as some religions believe against it and would not want to eat it. Genetically modified foods are said to be high in nutrients, and contain more minerals and vitamins than those found in traditionally grown foods. Other than this, these foods are known to taste better. Another reason for people opting for genetically engineered foods is that they have an increased shelf life and so there is less fear of foods getting rotten quickly. There are more pro's and is a good idea but we cannot out rule the cons.
