People are starting to worry about genetically modified organisms. Their affects on the body are unknown and it makes people nervous. This talks about how they are creeping into the food supply everywhere. The crop plants are modified to help control pests and then we eat them, modified genes and all.
- In the near future, the next phase of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may involve living things – insects!
- These genetically modified bugs have been created to “improve” older pest control techniques.
- If the use of these insects becomes widespread in farming, it could spell problems for farmers who wish to remain organic.
“Genetically modified bugs have been created to “improve” (and I use that term lightly) an older version of pest control techniques.”
