Public debate has been sparked by the importance of genetically modified organisms for ensuring food safety. There is a lot of consumer resistance to genetically modified plants due to the limited information available and lack of knowledge.
The matter is contentious and consumers must learn about how to sustain genetically-modified organisms.
Despite the fact that there are many opinions on genetically modified food, their implementation in biotechnological foods production has significantly reduced food insecurity, especially in developing countries.
GMO foods can be scientifically transformed and the DNA of these GMO foods is modified to produce certain characteristics. GMO food are altered to promote sustainability of the environment and high production.
GMO foods promote food security through the guarantee of sufficient yields (Goffin and al. 2015).
Experts have raised concerns about this approach, including the possibility of an increase in dependence on GMOs to produce food. This could lead to soil fertility being reduced.
Smith (2018). Researchers discovered that GMOs are important for food security.
Online publications will be used to help locate support material.
My research aims at investigating the impact of GMO food on alleviating hunger, especially in poor countries. My greatest concern is that the targeted populations are not engaging in the creative process. The failure of biotechnological engineering companies to involve the public in the creative process has led to grave concerns and discussion about the safety and quality of their products.
GMOs, which are high in output and resistant to drought have contributed significantly to the reduction of poverty in many developing countries. GMOs have increased the availability of food for households. GMOs used in agriculture are causing concern for the environment. Researchers claim that GMOs can alter soil fertility and threaten environmental sustainability. GMOs are associated with cancer-causing diseases, such as ovarian cancer.
A strong public engagement is key to educating the public about GMO foods.
Research results will be redirected to students and researchers in the natural sciences. Because of past experiences and knowledge of environmental effects of new biotechnologies they will likely have some opinions.
Policymakers will be the second group or audience. For policymakers to make good judgments about GMO research, they must be well-informed. Research must be shared with politicians if the discoveries are to have a positive impact on human lives.
Researchers are responsible for finding new information, but policymakers can design appropriate policies and supervise the implementation.
