Abstract

Genetically modified organisms and food have serious concerns due to their unpredicted nature. The beneficial effects include cost-effectiveness, economical benefits and endurance of the related product to certain obstacles including infections, and drought. Many diseases are attributed to genetically modified foods as with environmental hazards. Some of these have not been validated via scientific committees.
