GM crops are huge at the moment, and the noticeable 'counter movement' is for people to continue to purchase organic foods (please note I am specifically talking of GM crops and not meats, etc).
The argument as fair as I am aware is that some of the GM crops actually contain poisons to the human digestive system that cannot be broken down, and we have yet to find out their effects on long term health.
However, my question is: What can be achieved, if anything at all, in terms of creating GM crops which do not incur health issues? Is there a specific way of going about this?
- Could crops be made larger?
- Could crops become more pest-resistant?
- Could a 'uniform shape' be created?
- Would this be done with genes from other plants? Or artificially?
Thank you for your time.
