Recently more and more foods that we buy from the supermarket are involved in the manipulation of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) also known as genetic engineering or gene technology. but should genetic engineered food be sold to us the consumers even if we don’t know that it has been altered? Like every issue genetic engineering has its good points and it’s bad points.

The producers wouldn’t have to throw some crops away due to disease and weather damage, and we the consumers would get better quality foods for a smaller price.
More food could be created with the use of genetically engineering therefore solving some of the world hunger problem. The world has a population of 5.8 billion today.
