    In 1935, that was when GMO was started or discovered. In 1994 is when GMO foods were getting sold in stores. GMO is a laboratory process where genes from a DNA is forced into genes of an unrelated plant or animal.

    • I think that this essay is focusing too much upon what may be bad. As far as I see, there is no quantifiable evidence that says that GMOs are specifically bad. They aren’t necessarily less nutritious, as Golden Rice has allowed many people to have a healthier alternative to what they could eat. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_rice) Another interesting part of the argument, which I feel is though you addressed, is the speculative nature of science related to GMOs. Humans have effected wildlife around us ever since we started to select what plants we want to eat and spread the seeds of. GMOs are just a furthering of this idea in a new, more specific direction. You have proper warrant to be scared of GMOs, but I think that benefits, in some cases, outweigh potential harms.

    • I agree with you because i think its really fascinating how GMO’s work and how they chose their characteristics of a food to make it the best possible.

    • I agree with genetic engineering but we shouldn’t mess with the human body toward DNA no amount of DNA should change a person, you should be happy for who you are.
