I found a very interesting extended essay on genetically modified crops. With the country in an organic frenzy, science is stepping in with other options. This article mentions the pros and cons for GM (genetically modified) crops. This could be good because food can be made resilient against herbicide and disease. The downside being, who controls the rights to the GM crops and the distribution of seeds may not be fair-trade. There is a great summary about how some items already in stores are GM and how there may be more GM products in the future.
