What is your reflection about GMO?
GMOs could offer benefits to human life as well. Some genetically modified plant crops have become resistant to individual insects, parasites and harmful weeds, making the use of insecticides and pesticides unnecessary, reducing the use of these chemicals will decrease environmental pollution.
How will your GMO product help your family and the society?
GMOs reduce agriculturally related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. “GMOs have helped farmers reduce their environmental footprint by allowing them to use fewer inputs and enabling a shift to reduced tillage. These practices have led to less time spent on a tractor, less fuel used and fewer emissions.
Is GMO important in our society explain your answer?
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) provide certain advantages to producers and consumers. Modified plants, for example, can at least initially help protect crops by providing resistance to a specific disease or insect, ensuring greater food production. GMOs are also important sources of medicine.
What is the positive effect of GMO?
Tastier food. Disease- and drought-resistant plants that require fewer environmental resources (such as water and fertilizer) Less use of pesticides. Increased supply of food with reduced cost and longer shelf life.
What is the impact of GMOs on the environment?
Research indicates that GM crop technology can result in a net increase in herbicide use and can foster the growth of herbicide resistant weeds. In addition, there is concern that the use of GM crops may negatively impact the agriculture ecosystem.
Why should we use GMOs?
Increased supply of food with reduced cost and longer shelf life. Faster growing plants and animals. Food with more desirable traits, such as potatoes that produce less of a cancer-causing substance when fried. Medicinal foods that could be used as vaccines or other medicines.
When was the reflection paper on GMO published?
Reflection paper on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) This reflection was prepared in September 2003, with an update in October 2004
Should I be concerned about GMOs in food?
Many concerns exist around the use of GMOs. Because the industry is not yet highly regulated, even if you are aware of GMOs in your food it can be difficult to know what genetic material has been used to produce that food.
What is the relationship between community and GMOs?
To understand this relationship of community, of an essential oneness in the great unfolding story of the universe, is to situate the whole human project in a posture of deep respect for and interaction with the natural world. The promoters of GMOs point to the benefits to human good these products will bring.
