There have been many mixed reactions due to GM foods because of the rampant debate surrounding GMO technology. Today, the process of genetic modification is rapidly advancing throughout the planet. In 2004, 8.25 million farmers in 17 nations grew the crops (Ahmed 30). The production and marketing of GM foods are due to the superficial benefits they hold either to the producer or to consumption of these genetic foods.
When it was first introduced, GM seeds developers needed their products to be accepted by producers and focus on innovations that have direct benefits to the farmers and the food industry at large. For example, the International Rice Research Institute located in the Philippines manufactured the GM golden rice to help people in South East Asia that were lacking food. Research has shown that GMO presents significant threats because of inconclusive research on their safety and their effects on the environment. However, I believe GMO is a necessary evil that the human race must contend with because it faces an imminent food crisis. GMO is the necessary evil that will solve the world food problem (Specter 34).
GMO foods are unavoidable, and we cannot live without them. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Food, Drug Administration, and other scientific bodies in the world have strongly advocated for the use of GM foods, since they do not predispose the human health to any harm. Additionally, research shows that the risks to human health that may be brought about by the consumption of GM foods are the same as those that are produced by the consumption of non-GM foods. Moreover, GM foods are safe to use as they tested for food safety and passed the safety assessment. Some people believe that GM foods should be eliminated due to the risks they have like the health issues. It is a fact that people have eaten some of the GM foods unknowingly, but no complains of serious concerns (Ahmed 18).
By 2040, the world’s population is predicted to increase

The popularity of these applications led businesses to ponder whether some of their business process applications that run on desktop platforms and the Web could be redesigned to run on mobile devices. The response was undoubtedly positive. As it is known that Nationwide developed the Nationwide® Mobile, a free iPhone App that allows its insurance policyholders to file a claim on the spot when an accident occurs.
Freedom, in the natural law tradition, is fundamentally present as human identity but is limited by either the State or other citizens who may use force individually or in groups to coerce others socially. The State as a “necessary evil” arises from this compromise or duality where the collective mass of people in a region choose, or inherit a choice made by their ancestors as “citizenship,” to prefer a formal and consciously organized system of protection (”the State”) over the instability, chaos, and violence of a “warlord” or tribal type of system where multiple power groups compete for social resources and gains through their population’s own systems of identity and pro
However, some companies are forced to engage in ‘evil’ practices for the sake of generating profits from their operations. As such, this paper seeks to critically evaluate the aspect of marketing and selling genetically modified food to consumers which has been roundly condemned by other people as evil practice due to various reasons.
It is a fact that competition brings in value for the end users but it gives a tough time to the companies which are fighting with each other to earn the extra value which they need to remain in the business. They are also trying their
The study evaluates Inwagen’s fascinating views regarding free will on the global as well as local arguments from evil.
