GM Food FOOD THAT'S GENETICALLY MOTIFIED STAKE HOLDERS ? Farmers Yes, is me! Scientists! WHaT?! Is Genetically Modify (GM)? Customers MAIN GROUPS EnvironmentalIST
& Economist less chemical use more natural control less chemical poisoning less chemical pesticide resistance less expense less debt less suicides 1. ENVIRONMENTALLY 2. Economy Increased yield GM is the path to a safe future... give the poor a chance
to have food ! Cheaper food Vegetables HOW TO MAKE G.M? There are several groups of stakeholders of GM Food who are all affected by this issue in different ways. In this case, there are the farmers, the scientists who developed this technology and the people who eat and buy the products. Farmers can be affected and have the most impact. In a positive way they can spend less time and care less to grow the crops. Also they can get more profit from it, because the GM Crops are genetically changed to be immune to bugs and to be less affected by the weather (Dr. Adalia’s interview). There are also negative impacts as well for example, many farmers in India who had to buy GM seeds and went bankrupt. Now in India the government is trying to take out the industry but they were not successful yet (Ms.Pavic and 'India says no to first GM food crop' By Yasmeen Mohiuddin (AFP) – Feb 9, 2010). Yet with GM technology the production of food can increase. GM Food is cheap compared to its size, quantity and quality. So the poor will be able to benefit from this as well. The scientists who invented this technology are also a group of stakeholders. They get affected in many different ways. There are negative rumors that can affect their discovery of GM technology and can get bad perspectives from the world. However if GM technology gets a good reputation the scientists will also get a good reputation as well.

The customers that buy and eat GM products can be another group of stakeholders, because they can get more amount of food with less amount of money, which can help them financially. The fact that these GM Crops are designed to live and adapt to the environment surrounding can help us in the future. GM Food can partly solve some big problems such as the Global Warming and Ozone Depletion issue. It is said that because of these two issues in the future the temperature might rise. If the temperature does rise there will be rapid weather changes. The GM Crops will be able to grow in rapid weather conditions. For example, scientists can inject new types of genes from different animals so that plants will be able to adapt in different weathers. This has lead to tomatoes that can survive the frost because scientists have input a gene of a certain type of fish (interview with Dr.Adalia).

Web. 14 Apr. 2010. <http://www.thefreedictionary.com/pesticide>. PICTURES INFO THANK YOU!! NOW you know more about GM food In Asia..... Why is GM technology important ? A person or thing
that becomes affected,
and in this case.. Interview Pieces In Japan, both the producers and the public aren’t exactly supporting genetically modified food. However some GM foods are imported to create foods for animals and to produce certain cooking oils in Japan. Japanese food companies haven’t been producing much GM Foods because of the worries that GM Foods will cause health concerns and the Japanese public will not support the products, whereas The Peoples Republic of China, from 1991 to 2002, six or so GMOs were approved for commercial use related to tomato, sweet pepper, cotton, tobacco, and petunia growing. The rules on GM products in china and importing, producing and selling the products are fairly strict. This involves the safety aspects, labeling or the need for licenses to do these things, Pakistan were genetically modified their products included tomato, soybean, cotton, and sugarcane, although Singapore has already approved the import of agricultural bio-tech products such as genetically modified maize and soybeans to be used in foods and feeds. According to Bangkok, the technology in today’s world is enough to conventionally grow non-GM foods GM Foods are simply not needed. There are also safety concerns that mean that conventional crops are better for people to eat. Bangkok cites that modern agriculture is advanced enough, so the need of GM Foods is unnecessary and feeding people GM Foods can do more harm than good. South Korea is now very positive upon GM foods and the importing of GM seeds. For now, it seems as if this will most likely stay the same in the future. In Thailand, they haven't decide and they think that they don't need it since they're rich in crops, but India’s BT cotton production companied by Monsanto’s Pesticides was denied clearance in 2003 in the northern states because it failed to produce higher yields and better income for farmer. Report: US! 2 GM Cow Misleading
Facts Bees &
Pollution Unnatural "The only soution is, let us base our
conclusion, let us base our impression
scientifically generated data, not on
emotionally convine data by people
who are against GM..." -Dr Adalia "Because their is no low or no guidelines yet for GM
labeling and if you will ask me, I care neither its labelled
or not. Why? Peobably labeling is good because you will
know what your eating.." I think use what you can afford, use what is appropriate to your situation So GM is not positive, its not negative.
