Should Genetically Modified Foods be Produced on a Wider Scale Around the World?


4 Pages Essays / Projects Year: Pre-2018

Genetically modified (GM) crops have been an issue debated ever since their commercial introduction in 1996 (ABC, 2015). GM foods are manufactured in order to display describable characteristics such as disease and pesticide resistance and in turn beneficial for both consumers and manufacturers (Doneteks M, 2011). In Australia, only a handful of genetically modified food products including corn, canola and sugar are allowed on supermarket shelves; however they are subject to numerous government regulations set by the Australia New-Zealand Foods standard authority (FSANZ, 2015). The scientific community is currently split on the production of GM foods as some sectors argue that there are too many nutritional and production benefits, whilst others highlight the detrimental aspects of producing GM foods, e.g. ecological and environmental issues; hence it must be determined whether or not GM foods should be produced on a wider scale around the world. This received an A in 2017.
