Benefits and Risks
Benefits: Foods resistant to harmful environmental factors or predators. Foods can be filled with vitamins and nutrients which they usually would not have. Foods can last longer (longer shelf life).
Risks: People may have allergic reactions to the GMO's. GMO's may escape into the wild and breed with other organisms. Small farms may be at a loss of business. Patents will cause controversy throughout companies and farmers.
