ABSTRACT:
Genetic engineering has a wide scope in future world. Several profits are made from genetic engineering. One of which is genetically modified foods. It is created by modifying the genes in the organisms by inserting desirable traits in organism. It helps to meet the demands of food requirement and increase the resistance of plants towards pesticides, herbicides, etc. Though it has advantages it has certain adverse effect also. Several research studies had indicated the harmful effects of genetically engineered food products. It is said to create hepatic, renal and reproductive problems. And the major threats are infertility, rashes on skin and cancer. Several researches have been made on animals by feeding them with genetically modified foods. These animals were likely found to develop inflammation in stomach and other complications. A survey was conducted to find whether the public have knowledge about the ill effects of genetically modified foods. And it was found that most them don’t know that they are consuming genetically modified foods.
