Disadvantages Of Genetically Modified Foods

Posted by: admin In: GM Foods

The technology, which supply new properties to the organism by transferring gene from one organism to another or by interference to genetic structure, is called “Gene Technology”.  Foods’ genetic structures are changed by this technology and these foods are called “Genetically Modified Foods”.

Ripening delayed tomatoes in 1994 is a first example of genetically modified food. The safety of these foods is at issue. There are several risks of these foods. They are;


  • Genetically modified foods may gain undesirable properties.
  • The preservation of genetic variety in one specie is difficult. The technology make farmer to produce only one type fertile plants.
  • The technology may cause undesirable degeneration. So, surprisingly, low quality products may be obtained.
  • Genetically modified foods may change the microbial flora of the soil. It may cause deperdition of essential microorganisms on soil. This ruin natural balance.
  • When genetically altered microorganisms are consumed with food products, they may consolidate with human or animal organism. His combination may cause deperdition, metamorphosis, or any other strange organisms.
  • If the foods which were made antibiotic resistant by gene technology are consumed, it may give the same property to human. This cause failure of antibiotic-based treatments.
  • By this technology transferred genes may contaminate to other organisms undesirably. This may cause biologic disaster.
  • As a ring of nature chain, insects may be influenced by genetically modified foods and insects can develop resistant mechanism.
  • Even beneficial foods that carry toxic effect genes can cause human illness.
  • There is a risk of formation one kind of flora.
  • Other organisms in the same medium may be influenced by genetically modified foods.
