Homework #3

The Role of Genetic Engineering in Enhancing the Global Food Supply
 
The debate over the role of Genetic Engineering in increasing the global food supply has been the focus many scientists over the last few decades.  The debate over the advantages and disadvantages is explored in this exercise.  Should we be concerned with the development of genetically modified organisms and their effects on humans and the environment or should we continue to develop GMOs to be able to feed the growing population? 
 
In this project you are asked to take a look at both sides of this issue and complete the following tasks:
 

  • Google and Watch the following 2 Ted Talks that cover both sides of the issue:

 
Gary Hershberg – Why Genetically Modified Foods Should be Labelled.
Pamela Ronald – The Case for Engineering out Food
 

  • Read Walsh on America’s Food Crisis and How to Fix it.

 

  • Think about and critically evaluate both sides of the issue by completing the analysis report.
