Genetically Modified Food

By: Joni Klobucista & G'mara Sanchez

Description of the process or technique

In order to genetically modify food for the hungry, we came up with the idea to inject soylent into the foods that are being served to them. Although soylent is just a liquid and or powder, the hungry could enjoy a small portioned meal and still get all the nutrition they need as a human being.

How is it being used currently?

Soylent is currently being used as a meal replacement. The beverage will give humans the necessary nutrients to survive.

What is the benefit of this type of genetic engineering?

The benefits of this genetic engineering would be that, the people are consuming 2,000 calories, 50 percent from carbohydrates, 20 percent from protein and 30 percent from fat. In addition, this is in sync with federal Dietary Guidelines for the average American adult. Another benefit would be that there is more surplus being saved, and the hungry will receive all the possible nutrients in each meal.

Is there any disadvantages or risks?

One major disadvantage is the ingredients have to be precise. If there is too much or not enough of the product, then the user will get sick. There is no telling how sick the user will get, because everyone has a different reaction to the product.

How does it affect organisms (and which kind) physically?

The product will benefit human, especially those who are homeless. They will be able to receive the nutrients they need without having to over feed themselves. They will also be able to maintain their weight using the product.

What's its economic affect?

The product will not cause any economic problems. It is easy to make, and it is inexpensive. The homeless will receive the product for free, so they can eat without the concern of making enough money.

How does it affect the environment?

The product will help the homeless live longer and help them live a healthier life. The product will decrease the number of people dying of starvation every day.

How does it affect the world in a social aspect?

This could affect the world in a social aspect because it may allow people to be live longer, and allow more families to be formed.

How will it affect our future?

The way soylent being injected into foods could affect our future, is by salvaging our nourishment. One more way this product could affect our future is by ending world hunger.
