Genetic Engineering

Over the coming years you will be confronted with many new and unfamiliar things about which you will have to make decisions. The future of the planet, and the life that is sustained on it, may depend on what decisions you make. If you get the decisions wrong, life that comes after you will suffer, but if you get it right life will benefit. What you want from the life that you have been given is in your hands.

One of the pending decisions that you have to take now concerns genetic engineering, for genetically modified food is already with us and is subject to immediate debate. You will now have to think long and hard about the subject and the implications. Below are two organisations that are giving opposing points of view on this subject. Read all you can, make up your mind, but do not get it wrong.

Monsanto    or    Friends of the Earth
