Genetic Engineering is a way of genetically modifying an organism without going through a breeding programme.

For GM:

  • More people can be fed as GM crops produce higher yields
  • Many people have no problem with the idea of eating GM produce
  • Gm farms have increased productivity while using fewer inputs so food costs will fall
  • Most GM crops have been safe so far

Against GM:

  • Poor farmers that would benefit from the high yield may not have been able to afford the seeds
  • Those who have a problem with GM produce won't buy it so farmers will lose money and markets
  • GM crops may change the ecosystem in a way…
