<ul><li> 1. GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS<br /></li></ul> <p> 2. Definition:<br />Is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.<br />Subtitle:<br />These Techniques, generally known as recombianant DNA technology, use DNA molecules from different sources,which are combined into one molecule to create a new set of genes. This DNA is then transferredinto an organism, giving it modified or novel genes. Transgenic organisms, a subset of GMOs, are organisms which have inserted DNA that originated in a different species.<br /> 3. This is GMO how looks like<br /> 4. Let us know what are the advantages and Disadvantages of Genetically Modified Organisms<br /> 5. Advantages of GMO<br />Genetically engineered organisms such as crops are given traits such as bigger seeds or better resistance to pests.<br />This helps farmer able to produce more crops, which inturn helps feed more people.<br />With animals,they might give it genes to grow fatter or produce more milk.<br /> 6. Disadvantages of GMO<br />Decrease in genetic diversity<br />Farm market control<br />Food market control<br />Poisoning/ Toxification of neighboring crops<br />Loss of local farmers<br />Starvation of Local populations<br />Exploitation<br />The disturbance of ecological balance<br /> 7. 8. ANTI-GMO<br /> 9. Because<br /> 10. A genetically modified organisms are harmful and unsafe <br />GMO are incredibly dangerous to both HUMANS AND THE ENVIRONMENT! We need to stop Monsanto and the other devil companies.<br />Genetic engineering borderlines on many moral issues, particularly involving religion, which questions whether man has the right to manipulate the laws and course of nature.<br />Nature is an extremely complex inter-related chain consisting of many species linked in the food chain. Some scientists believe that introducing genetically modified genes may have an irreversible effect with consequences yet unknown. <br />it bringsdifferent chemical that can cause ill especially to human.<br />even it can easily brought us foods it is not 100% secure that we can avoid into harm on health.<br /> 11. Based on my reserch,it is harmful to other organisms,and instead of using genetically modified medicines we can used herbal plants.<br /> 12. and an naturalThere are different kinds of genetically modified organisms and we need to avoid cross contamination between GM and other organisms. <br /> 13.
