We have discussed food insecurities globally, and the impact that food shortages have had on the population and the economy of the societies. The degradation of land, extreme poverty, and social deprivation (i.e., limited education, increased population, unstable economies, etc.) all contribute to food insecurities in a number of countries/societies.
A means of abating this social issue is genetically modified food (GM).Even though the production of modified crops has been increasing around the world in efforts to address hunger and food insecurities, there is still some controversy.
