and Genetic Engineering
ability of scientists to move genes from one organism to
another has raised interest in the many possible benefits
this process can bring to society. The public has become
about the results of biotechnology. Crops are being
engineered to resist attack by insects and pests. Fruits and
vegetables are lasting longer and tasting better. Using
genetic engineering, products are being produced to enhance
milk production and beef quality in cattle. Scientists are
engineering bacteria so they can or get rid of harmful
chemicals and help solve environmental problems. Genetic
engineering has been used to produce products for the
treatment and prevention of human diseases. Genetic
engineering provides limitless possibilities for the benefit

is the possibility that pathogenic bacteria could be
created and spread. This creation could be purely
accidental or the results of biological
research. For some people, the entire idea of biological
warfare could be a viable option for defense .
we have the right to alter life as we know it!?
