Genetically Engineered Foods
Despite the sufficient global food resources, world hunger is extensive since even though there is increased in food production some people are too poor to buy readily available foods. Many regions in the world have suffered hunger as a result of failure to produce large quantities because of climatic changes. A number of productive areas have turned to desert and hence measures should be taken to ensure that food production is sustainable for all populations. During the last decades, the world has undergone a number of advancements one of them being biotechnological advancement. This has helped in coming up with ways of increasing food production and sustaining it for generations. Like any other form of technology, biotechnology has been considered as offering wide ranging promising profits that help agriculture and the entire environment. However, genetically engineered foods are not the answer to world’s hunger.
