Genetic modification of crops has led to reduced effectiveness of herbicides and pesticides, transfer of genes to species that are not targeted, and has caused harm to important organisms.It has also caused allergies to most people in different parts of the world and raised economic concerns.
It increases the levels of the allergy causing proteins that found in the plant.
This clearly tells that what we are eating is not natural and pure anymore.
The studies have shown that these engineered foods in animals shows the valid results of immunosuppression.
Genetically modified food is made by applying different genetic engineering technologies to raise the best in fruits, crops and vegetables etc.
Although this methodology would seem beneficial but it is actually against the natural and normal breeding because GM involves interbreeding among different species and that is not natural or normal. S 5% of the children and 2% adults get affected by GM food because they may get allergies or high toxicity, decreased nutritional value and also antibiotic resistance.
Over time it has affected people from different parts of the world resulting into allergies, infections and even new kind of diseases. Even though genetically engineered food products are being used worldwide but their safety has not been verified yet.
According to the article, “the FDA has already concluded that genetic engineering was possible cause of 37 deaths and 1,500 disabling illnesses caused by consumption of the dietary supplement L-tryptophan”(Mendelson,153).
Secondly, the GE foods are the biggest risk of the allergic reactions in the Americans.
Genetically modified foods are completely different from the modern agriculture foods.
The genetically engineered food involves artificially manipulating the seed, or food animal, at the cellular level.
