Personnally on Genetic Engineering

On the issue of Genetic Engineering, I personally fall "in between," I am neither for nor against that issue thus, I could make an argument for both sides. I totally support advancement, particularly when it involves science and technology, etc. But in any situation, where one must take a position, one side often times outweighs the other. As is the case in this situation and since I must choose a side, I will argue against the issue of Genetic modification of foods.I have three questions to support my argument. I begin with religion, is biotechnology so advanced that it now has the right to play God?

And mixing or modifying any of the natural process by which these things were made is not natural and is very possibly dangerous.Things such as allergic reactions, long term effects of these modifications are not tested on a regular basis.In history, there are many cases that prove that scientists must draw the li…
