What's important to consider about genetically modified food?

Genetically modifying salmon may have a lasting effect on the natural world.
 

You need to make your own list of pros and cons.

As a biologist, I'm concerned about the effect of technology on the environment. When food is genetically modified, part of the natural world is changed. We need to look carefully at what effects this can have.

On the other hand, there will be 9 billion people on the Earth in the next 30 years. That's a lot of people to feed. Genetic modifications is probably one of the few ways we can produce enough food.

It's a very complicated issue. Think about it.
