1. Agricultural process
Invention and application of the biotechnological process have had increased profits to farmers. They make use of genetically modified crops to produce higher yields. Besides, biotechnology helps produce healthier and fast-growing animals.
2. Environmental purpose
Biotechnology has a significant positive environmental effect. It helps in the improvement of the ecological footprint by reducing the pollution levels in the environment. It is ideal for protecting the natural habitats of plants and animals.
Biotechnology has an important application of biotechnology in medicine. It has a huge impact on the development of drugs to cure diseases. It has helped in improving the overall quality of life as well as increase life expectancy levels.
1. Biodiversity loss
Alteration of genetics in crops in a yield maximizing manner can lead to the serious loss of biodiversity. It leads to a dramatic change as the plant strains may not supply enough yields, leading to a decrease in the global food supply.
2. Health problems
The use of genetically modified organisms is connected to serious health problems. GMOs usage may not be long enough to help the judge in our health issues’ it is not a good idea to use them. Artificial flavors used in food processing are also a major contributor to health issues.
Researchers’ genetic modification may have a long-lasting effect on the environment, causing an outbreak of a pandemic. The chances are that an accident may occur from the laboratory’s mixtures at a point, causing them to spread.
There are so many important advantages associated with the usage of biotechnology in the modern world. However, the government should put strict measures to ensure biotechnology usage improves human existence quality.
