Pros and Cons Of Genetically Modified Food

Published

on

It’s human nature, it seems, to resist change and fear the unknown. So it is no surprise that genetically modified food and feed crops resulted in their weird name as Frankenfood by many consumers, who seem as terrified of eating an apple with an added anti-browning gene or a pink pineapple genetically enriched with the antioxidant substance. One of the products of modern technology has given us both advantages and disadvantages. It is up to us to decide whether we will be consuming it or not.

 

1. What Is  GM Food?

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be defined as organisms (i.e. plants, animals or microorganisms) in which the genetic material DNA has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. The technology is often called modern biotechnology or gene technology, sometimes also recombinant DNA technology or genetic engineering. It allows selected individual genes to be transferred from one organism into another. It can also occur between non-related species. Foods produced from or using GM organisms are often referred to as GM food.

 

2. Why Is Genetically Modified Food Produced?

GM food is developed and marketed because there is some perceived advantage either to the producer or consumer of this food. This is meant to translate into a product with a lower price, greater benefit in terms of durability or nutritional value or both. Initially, GM seed developers wanted their products to be accepted by producers and have concentrated on innovations that bring direct benefit to farmers and the food industry generally. One of the objectives for developing plants based on GM organisms is to improve crop protection.

3. Is Genetically Modified Food Safe?

Genetically Modified Food

Different GM organisms include different genes inserted in different ways. This means that individual GM foods and their safety should be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Certainly, it is not possible to make general statements on the safety of all GM food. The food currently available on the international market have passed safety assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health. In addition, no effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of such foods by the general population in the countries where they have been approved.

 

Pros

Genetically Modified Food

Less Wastage Of Water 

Growing GMO crops leads to environmental benefits such as reduced pesticide use, less water waste, and lower carbon emissions. The two main types of GMO crops in use today are engineered to either produce their own pesticides or to be herbicide-tolerant. Drought-tolerant varieties of GMO corn have been shown to reduce transpiration (evaporation of water off plants) by up to 17.5%, meaning less water waste.

Help Overcome Poverty

GMO crops lower the price of food and increase nutritional content, helping to alleviate world hunger. The World Food Programme, a humanitarian organization, estimates that 821 million people in the world are chronically undernourished, and one in nine people face hunger. Population growth, climate change, over-farming, and water shortages all contribute to food scarcity. GMOs can help address those problems with genetic engineering to improve crop yields and help farmers grow food in drought regions.

 

Cons

Genetically Modified Food

 

Allergic reactions

Some people believe that GMO foods have more potential to trigger allergic reactions. This is because they may contain genes from an allergen, a food that prompts an allergic reaction. The World Health Organization (WHO) discourage genetic engineers from using DNA from allergens unless they can prove that the gene itself does not cause the problem. It is worth noting that there have been no reports of allergic effects of any GMO foods currently on the market.

Cancer

Some researchers believe that eating genetically modified food can contribute to the development of cancer. They argue that because the disease is caused by mutations in DNA. It is dangerous to introduce new genes into the body. The American Cancer Society (ACS) has said that there is no evidence for this. However, they note that no evidence of harm is not the same as proof of safety. Reaching a conclusion will require more research.

 

      How to identify Genetically Modified Food? 

Genetically Modified Food

he FDA have determined that GMO food should be labeled as such if it is “materially different” to its conventional counterpart. For example:

  •  Canola oil with more lauric acid than traditional canola oil will be labeled “laurate canola oil”
  • GMO soybean oil with more oleic acid than non-GMO soybean oil must be labeled “high-oleic soybean oil”
  • GMO soybean oil with a high level of stearidonic acid, which does not naturally occur in the oil, must be labeled stearidonic soybean oil.

Because genetically engineering food is a relatively new practice, little is known about the long-term effects and safety. There are many downsides, but the evidence varies. The main health issues associated with GMO foods are hotly debated. Research is ongoing. This section discusses the evidence for a range of drawbacks that people often associate with Genetically Modified Food.

Genetic modification can make plants resistant to diseases. The process can increase the amount of food that farmers are able to grow. This can reduce prices and contribute to food security. Genetically modified food crops are relatively new, and researchers know little about their long-term safety and health effects. There are several health concerns regarding GMO foods, and evidence for them varies. Reaching a conclusion will require more research.
