Why the crops or animal is genetically modified (what characteristics are changed or added)
Decreased in cost less money spent pesticides better for environment
Disadvantages harmful health risks antibiotic resistance health problems for animals gm foods may contain allergies.
How the crop if genetically modified (where is the other dna coming from)
Modified starch composition could soon be grown in Europe.
Benefits of genetic modification
Creating plants better resistant to weeds,pest and other diseases.
Longer shelf life for easier shipping.
Risks of genetic modification
could harm us humans new allergens in food supply antibiotic resistance.
