Benefits of GMF's
They're not as bad as they seem.
What is a Genetically Modified Food?
Genetically modified food (GMF) is defined as food from agricultural biotechnology and crops that have been genetically altered by scientists. The process occurs when bio-chemists take desirable genes from one plant and insert them into the genetic material of another plant with the purpose of exploiting a trait from the original organism.
What are the benefits of GMF's?
Pesticide Alternative- crops such as corn and soybeans can be genetically altered to resist pests instead of pesticides, making the farmer, the consumer and the environmentalist happy.
Cold Tolerance- In order to prevent cold temperatures from killing crops, scientists can take a gene from cold water fish that produce "antifreeze", and place it into certain plants that always freeze
