Genetic engineering can be used to create more productive strains of farm animals. By adding genes to an animal’s DNA, the animal can be made to produce milk or meat containing vital nutrients that would not be found naturally in those products. This provides a greater amount of nutrients per serving of milk or meat.
What are some possible impacts (positive and negative) of this type of genetic engineering on individuals, society, and the environment?
If someone could help me out with a couple ideas for this I would be eternally grateful.

(Not really math)
- Society : better/cheaper mean to get the vital nutriment.
- Individuals : Healthier
- Environement : ? Not really affected in any positive way.
-Society : ?
- Individuals : DNA manipulation carries a risk (eg, it goes wrong, and the milk end up being poisoned)
-Environement : As everybody use the 'new' cow, the old variety of cow begin to disappear, causing a loss of genetic diversity, which ultimately reduce the species overall survival odds. (Natural selection favors diversity)
