  • Benefits Of Genetically Engineered Foods
    1,440 words
    The Benefits of Genetically Engineered Foods are in the Near Future. Introduction: Genetically engineered foods could produce many benefits for our future because GE foods could promote longevity on the shelves of the stores, could be produced in drought ridden countries, and could enhance vitamins that are lacking in some countries. II. Background section. Facts on Linda Bren and the FDA facts. B. FDA states that GE foods are as safe as commercial foods. C. Most grocery stores contain GE produc...

  • Advances In Genetic Food
    675 words
    Millions of people all over the planet suffer from poverty and starvation. One very interesting but experimental solution to the problem of world hunger is genetically engineered food. The process involves the crossbreeding of crops in a laboratory with species that are not plant like. Say for example, that a scientist crossed a fish and a potato. The diversity of this gene mixture is supposed to give this hybrid crop special characteristics like resistance to disease, the ability to deal with e...
  • Food Science And Nutrition
    1,042 words
    "Genetically Engineered Crops: Their Potential Use for Improvement of Human Nutrition" was written by Dr. Lin Yan and Dr. Philip S. Kerr. The focus of the article was to discuss research being done to help feed the increasing world population with new scientific discoveries that have been made since World War Two. The most monumental discoveries have been the discovery of "chemical processes to reduce nitrogen and ammonia" as well as fertilizers with nitrogen in them and chemical pesticides to c...

  • Deter The Crickets And The Powder
    1,067 words
    Insects have been a nuisance to man since the beginning of time, up until the present. One of the plagues that struck Egypt was swarms of crickets, and locusts, which destroyed crops, and ate entire fields. Swarms of Crickets can cover up to 210 km. There have been cases of up to 100,000,000,000 insects in aswarm (one hundred billion). In these huge masses, they can completely destroy the land and everything on a farm. I chose to do this experiment because when I am at camp I am constantly woken...
  • Genetic Engineering Of Food
    1,780 words
    Genetic modification of organisms in general is a biotechnological process that forces genes to behave according to certain characteristics. Changing characteristics of organisms is based on changing their DNA (tech acid; the acid which carries genetic information in a cell). It is being used for modifying genes in plants, animals or micro-organisms. It is being also used especially with food in order to improve the nutritious quality, make less use of chemicals such as pesticides, which proved ...
  • Corn Ranks With Wheat And Rice
    282 words
    Corn Corn is the common name for the cereal grass widely grown for food and livestock fodder. Corn ranks with wheat and rice as one of the world's chief grain crops, and it is the largest crop of the United States. The Cultivation of corn in exists in the United States southwestern for least 3000 years. There are many varieties of corns with widely different characteristics; some mature in 2 months; others take 11 months. In the US sweat corn is commonly grown for human consumption as a vegetabl...
  • Genetic Pollution Into Non Gm Crops
    968 words
    REG MITCHELL's defence of "Frankenfoods" - genetically engineered (GE) farm products - in his Oct. 9 article "So-called Frankenfoods have no more pathogens than are found in nature" is a repetition of the mantra we hear daily from the global corporations that dominate agricultural biotechnology. His principal point seems to be that since life abounds with risks of various kinds (cancer-inducing elements in the environment, the risk of being hit by a truck) we shouldn't be concerned about the pos...

    Patrick Donahue Nats 104 3-9-00 Herbicide-Tolerant Crops Crop management is a vigorous activity that changes as technologies are developed. Now that were in the new millennium, we are finding new and enhanced ways to improve things that effect us in our everyday lives like, industrial pollution, car pollution, waste management, and also the advancement in herbicide-tolerant crops. Much advancement have been taking place to make our crops better and safer to eat without damaging crops from herbic...
  • Overseas Development Aid To Ethiopia
    623 words
    There are many causes for famine in Ethiopia. Some of which include: crop failure, war, and food / water shortages. Nearly all famines result from crop failure. The chief causes of crop failure include: drought, flooding and plant disease and pests. Ethiopia has large areas near deserts, where rainfall is light and variable (Electric Library). In May of 2000, it had appeared that an entire generation of children was battling to stay alive through one of the worst droughts in Ethiopia for several...

    New York City, Los Angeles, and a small Arkansas town... What do these geographically and culturally diverse locations have in common? A first glance would lead you to believe they have nothing in common, but after a closer investigation, one common tie can be found. Each location whether metropolitan or rural, is affected by America's leading industry, agriculture. When a family gathers for a Sunday dinner of steak and potatoes, they are reaping the benefits of American farmers. When a vegetari...
  • Genetic Engineering In Food
    421 words
    Genetically Engineered crops have been around more than a decade, but account for more than two-thirds of all crops produce in the United States. Are genetically engineered foods really safe? There are just as many experts who say they are safe as there are experts who say they are unsafe. And Labeling does it matter or not whether they are labeled one way or the other? As a consumer would you be inclined not to purchase a genetically engineered product? More than likely you have already purchas...
  • Modified Food Advantages Genetically Modified Food
    719 words
    Genetically Modified Food - Advantages Genetically Modified (GM) food has received a lot of flack from interest groups in the last few years, but I don't think that it is as bad as some claim it to be. For some, GM foods are thought to be harmful. What foods are potentially dangerous and what are the risks? I think that from a biologist point of view, that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Today, genetically engineered food is at the centre of the controversy. First, one must understand...
  • Plant Resistant To The Herbicidal Chemical
    705 words
    As we enter the 21st century, the world faces problems with feeding the increasing population. The need for agricultural food commodities increases along with concerns about being environmentally friendly. Agricultural lands will be forced to become more productive or move into previously wild areas. Most people favor keeping wild areas free from agricultural or human influence. The most realistic alternative is to make the current farmlands more productive. One method of doing this is to incorp...
