Genetic Engineering: Can Genetically Modified Foods End World Hunger?

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to several individuals who have played a significant role in my academic journey and personal growth. Their support and encouragement have not gone unnoticed in my achievements.

First and foremost, I want to thank my professor, Dr. Lori Boies. Dr. Boies has been a great mentor and guide throughout my academic career.

To my family, I owe a debt of gratitude that words cannot fully express. Your love and encouragement have been the foundation of my success. Your sacrifices and support have been a constant source of strength, and I am deeply thankful for everything you have done for me.

Lastly, I would like to acknowledge Alexander Smith. Your presence in my life has been a source of inspiration and support, both academically and personally. Your encouragement has played a significant role in shaping my journey, and I am grateful for your unwavering belief in my potential.

  • This is an impressive topic! Oftentimes it seems that GMOs have a negative connotation, but there may be little reason for it as you’ve mentioned all the advantages. I think this is a very important topic and I would have liked to see some more images or figures to highlight your excellent points, but your infographic had great information. It will be interesting to see what the future holds and if an implementation of more GMO food would alleviate world hunger.

    Congratulations on your award for this infographic! I think education about GMOs is important for the public. Foods with a GMO label tend to have negative connotations because they are not fully understood. GMOs are just a more targeted selective breeding. I liked the quote at the end about cloned animals being safe to eat. I think further explanation on clones would have made this infographic even better. Overall, I found it very informative. You did an amazing job!

    Great infographic! I believe it is so important to educate oneself on the advancements of modern technologies to better understand their potential. I also really enjoyed the fact the author added to the end that states GMOs will not be the only solution to ending world hunger. As helpful as it might be to reduce the amount of environmental resources to cultivate food or accelerate the reproduction of livestock, these efforts are futile without addressing poverty as the core issue.
