A Study On Genetic Engineering Essay
Genetic engineering is when a living cell’s deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is altered to improve it in nearly any way one wishes. Alterations may include: how the cell would look later on in life; tricking it into producing something it normally would not; and/or increasing the amount of resources produced. Even though not everyone agrees with how the research is done on genetic engineering, it does do one thing: it betters our society. Due to research of genetic engineering, scientists have created ways to grow more fruits and vegetables, clone animals, collect more resources, save lives, collect information on the cloning process, and overall, better life for humans.
Genetically modified foods (or GM foods) are all around the world. It has become almost impossible in this culture and time for one to eat a meal without having a genetically modified ingredient included. A GM food is a food that has been mass produced and/or produced faster by the use of chemicals and unnatural injections to the food while it was growing. However, without the use of chemicals and injections into GM foods, food prices would be higher and less available.
When the topic of genetically modified foods come up, most people think of the agricultural side of it, rows of the same looking crops, sprayed with chemicals, but there is more to it than that. A Golden-Orb Weaver Spider’s silk is tougher than kevlar, a hundred time stronger than human ligaments, and to top it all off is…
