According to conventional definition, genetic engineering refers to the process of indirectly manipulating an organism’s genes, through the use of techniques such as molecular cloning or transformation, in order to alter the organism’s structure and nature of genes. And like any other science, genetic engineering has its pros and cons. Let’s take a close look at the effects of creating GE potatoes. Parent Worried Abo
GM potatoes are the least popular of the genetically modified crops that are planted in the US; the most popular being GM soybeans, GM cotton, and GM maize. The GE potatoe never got off the ground since fast food giants as well as other food producers boycotted the GM crop due to strong consumer backlash over crop biotechnology. Because of this, the GE potato never got off the ground and Monsanto had to focus on othe
Over the years, a wide array of crops and animals have been subjects of genetic engineering, such as tomatoes, sugar beets, corn, rice, sheep, cows and pigs. GMO potatoes are among the most controversial because of its different effects on the economy and the environment. Knowing more about the process and understanding how these are made might help you decide whether or not you wish to continue consumption and purch
Genetically engineered potatoes are one of the fastest growing produce in the field of genetic engineering in agriculture. Indeed, the spread of GE food has reached even the most basic of food supplies and is slowly making its way onto the dinner tables of consumers. Like most other vegetables and crops that were genetically modified, the purity of organic potatoes is also being threatened on an international level.
