The Importance of Biotechnology

Jacob Smith

The world's population is expected to increase to 9.5 billion people by 2050. That is over 2 billion people more than we have now. Somehow, we need more food. The answer is biotechnology. Biotechnology can increase yields, flavor, nutrients, and resistance to pesticides and herbicides. It can also decrease the time from seed to seed

Why should you support biotechnology?

Biotechnology is the only solution to the inevitable food crisis to come. People in Africa today starve to death. This will only get worse as time goes on. Biotechnology can increase yields to supply more food to those who need it.

Aren't genetically engineered plants dangerous for my consumption?

This is the exact opposite of reality. Genetically engineered plants can be considerably healthier than conventional plants. They are engineered to be more nutritious for you or the intended consumer. Cows were fed genetically engineered corn for over two years as an experiment and there were no problems with the cows.
