Food and Genetic Engineering
A 2 page paper discussing the true meaning of "genetic engineering" as it applies to food. Genetic engineering is more threatening in its name than in its purpose. It is the precise and predictable altering of plants to achieve specific characteristics, the same goal of plant breeding for specific traits. Environmentalist groups complain of the possibilities inherent in genetic engineering, but they often fail to understand the true goals of the practice. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
Future Possibilities of Foods That Are Genetically Engineered
A 4 page consideration of the promise of genetic engineering. This paper describes the potential benefits of the technology in improving the production, nutrition, and marketability of four common food crops, corn, wheat,tomatoes, and avocados. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
Evaluating Issues to Recommend Against the Cloning of Humans
A 6 page contention that the societal issues surrounding human cloning are simply to complex to allow the procedure to proceed. The author evaluates issues such as who would control the procedure, whether clones would be accepted as humans or used as machines of war or in other ethically disturbing ways, and who could authorize the use of an individual’s genetic material.
