Jeremy Rodriguez 801 Genetically Modified Food With an ever-growing population and the problems of world hunger, there has been a high demand for an increased food supply and a better food supply.with the more gm foods we grow the more gm foods go into the market, and the more they go in the market the the less it cost.Believe it or not,we have been consuming genetically modified foods for over a decade now. The substance that carries genes along its strands, has never been more successful. GM foods are modified for advantageous reasons such as: improved pest resistance, herbicide tolerance, disease resistance, cold tolerance, drought tolerance, nutrition, and pharmaceutical use. Some even find this advance as a plausible approach to ending world hunger found pervasive in developing countries. I believe that gm foods are GOOD and can benefit all of us. There are a lot of reason that gm food is beneficial, one reason gm foods are beneficial is that,Genetically modified foods can be highly beneficial, particularly when offered at low prices to impoverished areas. Plants can be made to be both drought-resistant and high yield, which is invaluable in areas that are arid and have few resources other than their arable land. Unfortunately, even seeds of genetically modified fruits and vegetables tend to be more expensive than their unaltered counterparts.Another reason is that,Genetically modified foods are beneficial if they are produced to improve human nutrition and access to food. For example if a given food can be modified to be grown in a new environment, farmers would be able to grow, eat and sell the genetically modified food. Genetically modified food may increase access to food for the world's population if it can be produced in greater amounts for less money. So later on our population will double. Genetically modified foods allow farmers to use fewer
