    Scientists have developed genetically engineered plants that are pest-resistant. By adding genes to the plant’s DNA, they become toxic to insects (but not to plants or animals). This means that these plants may not need to be sprayed with pesticides to ward off the insects. Would you be willing to eat these genetically altered crops? Explain your answer. What are some possible impacts (positive or negative) of this genetically engineered plant on the environment, society, and individuals? Can someone please help ne with this essay, I'm terrible in biology but so far I have " its negitive because you can get sick"
