Genetically Modified Organisms

Genetically modified organisms are beneficial and safe because ...

... genetically engineered bacteria are used for waste treatment and cleaning the environment.

... genetically engineered bacteria, plants, or animals can produce hormones and antibiotic.

... crops are herbicide and pest resistance, yet ...

... no one has been poisoned by a genetically modified plant ...

... there are no known hybrids between native plants and genetically modified plants that have become superweeds and destroyed natural habitats.

... genetic engineering also provides industrial improvement of enzymes used in fermentation of bread, wine, beer, or cheese or for specialized production steps in drug development and synthesis.

Other applications include the production and improvement of detergents, fats, oils, starch, fruit juces, cellulose and paper products.
