Genetically modified Man-eating sheep
There may be no danger with genetically modified foods, but many people are concerned that the effects of eating GMO foods is not known. While many studies show GMO food is safe, others point to anecdotal evidence suggesting that they may cause health issues.
Genetically Modified Crops have numerous advantages over the traditional varieties. Some of the advantages are: Genetically modified crops are disease resistant, insecticide resistant, pesticide resistant. They are better is taste and longevity. The fibres are adjusted to make eating smoother. They are modified to make them more nutritious.
There is nothing that suggests that GMO foods cause birth defects, though there are other health issues that are possibly linked to eating genetically modified foods.
death. Nothing, food that hasn't been genetically modified is natural food. The kind of food people have been eating for thousands of years. Something is more likely to happen to you if you eat genetically modified food.
not completely but it could do damage that fresh food wouldn't do as long as all the food you eat isn't genetically modified you'll be fine hope to have helped
The safety of genetically modified foods is not known. Some say studies show it is safe, but there are also studies that show it may not be safe. There is anecdotal evidence, such as doctors recommending that their patients stop eating foods that are genetically engineered and their health improving.
People want GMO foods to be labeled so they can know what they are eating, and choose not to buy foods that have been genetically modified if they choose to.
in some ways yes but not if your used to eating normal everyday food in life
Probably. Because genetically modified foods (GMO) are not required to be labeled as such, it is difficult to know for certain. But it is very likely that food staples produced by huge corporations such as Monsanto or Cargil are genetically modified. I suspect most of the corn, soybeans and wheat produced in the U.S. are GMO.
No, you have been eating it all your life in one way or another This is not a true statement, genetically engineered food has only been on the market since the mid 1990's.
An organism that is produced through genetic engineering is considered to be a genetically modified organism (GMO). Insulin-producing bacteria were commercialized in 1982 and genetically modified food has been sold since 1994. Genetic engineering is also called genetic modification. There is a worry among the public that eating genetically modified food may be harmful but scientific agreement is that these crops are no greater risk to human health than conventional food.
There are certainly those who believe that it is immoral to eat animals, but even if that were true, there does not seem to be any reason why it would be more offensive to eat genetically modified animals than it is to eat the animals that we already have (which are also highly modified by millennia of selective breeding, from their original state in the wild). I can think of a number of reasons why the world's growing population should eat a vegetarian diet rather than eating animals, genetically modified or not. However, I would not say that genetic modification is unacceptable. I will accept it.
These are usually called GMOs.

Yes but they are GM Foods (Genetically Modified Foods) which could have any kind of new disease so if you find one, I wouldn't recommend eating it.
No harmful diseases are known to be caused from GMO foods, although some believe some studies point to possible harmful effects of eating them.
Ecosystem well-being and individual health are reasons why consumers choose organic products. Organic products do not employ chemical, genetically modified or synthetic inputs and procedures. It means that consumers are not eating carcinogens and not supporting toxic releases and residues from non-organic methods and resources.
There are no reasons I would not be concerned about eating genetically engineered food.Reasons I would be concerned about eating genetically modified foods are:The lack of real regulation by the FDA - Declaring GMOs as "substantially equivalent" to non GMOs, not requiring stricter studies before new GMO foods are approved, etc.The revolving door between government regulatory agencies and Monsanto.Lack of scientific studies that show GMO foods are safe, though some say there is plenty of studies that show the safety of GMOs.The involvement of Monsanto.The technology itself, which can create unintended changes.Studies that show issues that occur in animals. Though these studies are usually, if not always, debunked, further study brings up issues that show the studies may not be as bad as they are made out to be.Using genes from one species to bring about changes in another by forcing it into that species, especially since this type of "breeding" does not occur, or very rarely occurs in nature.Doctors who encourage patients to stop eating GMO foods, and when they do, they get better.Credible scientists who are experts bringing up issues about GMOs.Possible long-term effects to human and animal health that are yet unknown.Possible long-term effects to the environment that are yet unknown.
People have different reasons for eating less meat, fish, and dairy. Some of those reasons are:the belief that eating animals and animal products is cruel to animalsthe way animals are raised (factory farms, overuse of hormones and antibiotics, use of genetically modified transgenic hormones)the belief that a plant-based diet is healthierthe cost of meat rising
You change your diet from non-organic to organic foods by only drinking and eating products that are labeled as organic without chemicals, genetically modified organisms and preservatives.
No benefits of eating GMO foods are known.
Because the long term affects of eating genetically engineered plants are unknown.
People prefer to eat foods that are not genetically engineered because the long term effects of eating genetically engineered plants is unknown.
There are no hard and fast numbers for how many people want to control the amount of GM foods they consume. There is evidence that there is a large enough number that is concerned that they have made some advances in letting food companies know. One example is General Mills Cheerios, which dropped in sales until General Mills stopped using GMO ingredients. Many of those who are concerned have turned to eating foods that are labeled organic, but what they may not realize is that processed organic foods are allowed to have a small percentage of GMOs in them now, and that more and more foods are being genetically modified.
Among modifications people have resorted to in order to avoid GMO foods are: not buying processed foods, eating more organically grown foods, eating more fruits and vegetables, changing the types of oils, milk, and other products they buy, etc.
