Recent estimates suggest that 70% of processed food in the US contains genetically modified ingredients, largely from genetically modified soy beans. Unlike many other countries, the US doesn’t require food to be labelled as containing genetically modified ingredients. Should we be concerned about eating food processed from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or is this concern unfounded? Besides possible food issues, are there any other potential problems that GMOs might cause? See Chapter 9 in your textbook for some inspiration.
A separate post to the initial discussion question (50% of grade) and reply to another student (50% of grade) are required for this discussion board. Please include the name of the person or question to which you are replying in the subject line. For example, “Tom’s response to Susan’s comment.”
Please note: APA format and references are not required for discussions. This is a college-level course and I expect that all discussion board posts and replies are written in complete sentences using proper grammar and punctuation. Typographical errors, misspellings, etc., will be penalized (minimum of 1 point deducted per issue). P
