People in today’s society don’t understand the drugs that are being put into plants and animals that everyone is consuming. Genetically Modified foods do affect the human body in many of ways. The first way that Genetically Modified foods are being used is in the plant industry. Researchers are proving everyday that Genetically Modified foods dealing with plants do affect the human body in various ways. The results of most studies with Genetically Modified foods indicate that they may cause some common toxic effects such as hepatic, pancreatic, renal, or reproductive effects and may alter the hematological, biochemical, and immunologic parameters (Artemis, 2009).
Secondly, GM foods can be planted in extreme environment. Cold tolerance and drought-resistant gene implanted in the food can be grown in extreme cold and dry area. With this gene, these plants are able to tolerate some extreme environment that normally would kill unmodified crop. (2.Monsanto Company, 2009). Last, GM food can prevent a lot of virus in crops.
[animal-testing.procon.org] Researchers in Aston University have made it known that it is not worth taking the lives of these animals for testing, because the things we’re trying to make happen with human bodies is very different from the animal body. The anatomic, metabolic, and cellular differences between animals and people make animals poor models for human beings. There is a big percentage from the 1950’s up till now that animal testing is flawed by not being correct when it is given to the people it is for. So why not just stop the animal experiments that are not just killing, but also torturing the animals.
Why take the risk of developing these illnesses or side effects when you could be eating healthy, chemical- free meat, that was naturally raised? The meat industry’s factory farms are absolutely disgusting and are harmful to our environment as well! The added hormones that are injected into the animals have to pass through also just like the food. In the animal’s feces, the chemicals exist. The mass production of animals in the factory farms is obviously going to produce a lot of manure.
The space the animals are confined in is small to increase efficiencies of such inputs as lighting and heating. Confining animals in such housing denies them fresh breathing air, which is made worse by the stench of decomposing manure (Phoenix and Lynn 229). Further, to reduce the spread of disease outbreaks, the animals are constantly given low doses of antibiotics that can cause development of resistant bacteria strains. Putting animals in close confinement causes animals to develop stress symptoms such as in chickens include biting or pecking one another. In order to
What Genetically Modified (GM) Foods’ Risk Is What Genetically Modified (GM) Foods’ Risk Is Abstract In the present day, by the developing of agricultural technology, the Genetically Modified (GM) Foods have become more and more popular. Many countries’ peasants would like to plant GM foods instead of some original foods, because the GM foods have these advantage, rest resistance, disease resistance, Cold tolerance and some else. However, as a new and developing technology, the GM foods still have a lot of risks, like reduced effectiveness of pesticides, gene transfer to non-target species, human health risk, etc. Moreover, if we do not pay attention on it, in future, it is likely to threaten the living environment or even human life. Therefore, we cannot ignore these risks to harm to our health and the environment.
Millard reaction products changes while processing foods, and they are important either in the increasing or fighting of diseases. Furthermore; SOYBEAN processing also produces MPRs that is good and bad to health play an important role in the cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and cancer. Also microwaving of soybeans for a short time (1-2) min produces high of acrylamide, while (3-5) min microwaving can lead to low level of acrylamide which acts as a carcinogen. Milk undergoes Ultra high temperature (UHT) treatment for the quality and safety. Also milk processing has both initial and advanced stages of MPRs which acts as an indicator of browning reaction in milk.
Commercial Test on Animals should be banned Have you ever wonder how are all products made? Have you taken the time to see what variety of shampoo, makeup, body wash, or other products are you using? Now a day many commercial products before being sold in a store, they should pass through some tests and some products should be tested on animals before being sold. If a product hasn't been tested, it's an experimental product, what if that product starts to develop an allergy or a serious condition that can affect drastically our body. Animal testing its something kind of inhuman, even if animals don't understand and cannot act like humans but they are living things.
So if we know there is a link between chemicals and illnesses in both humans and animals, then why would we treat our crops with chemicals? The answer to this question is simple, this aids in yielding larger crops. Pesticides are a creation of human science designed to increase crop output. As we all know pesticides are meant to kill insects and plant disease. According to US Environmental Protection Agency's definition of a pesticide “Though often misunderstood to refer only to insecticides, the term pesticide also applies to herbicides, fungicides, and various other substances used to control pests.
Also damaging water reserves and soil quality.” In the world, scientists try to find the ways of Biotechnology for an harvesting more soybean, with not maximizing yield that causes bad influences to the environments. Paragraph 2: Scientists has developed Bt toxin and glyphosate for maximizing the yield without increasing the land of cultivation. Paragraph 2a: Bt is Bacillus thuringiensis which prevents from insects that eats crops and it occurs naturally. Bacillus thuringiensis is a common soilborne bacterium which produces crystals that kill insects when eaten. Bt is a spore forming bacterium and it produce a spore which is a cell that consists of a crystal protein within the spore.
