## josedavid one year ago Which of the following correctly summarizes the main issue with most genetically engineered food crops? Resulting crops are less nutritious Creating a market for the resulting crops has proven difficult Increasing one quality in a food crop may degrade other qualities Resulting crops are too expensive because of the engineering

probably c

Yeah, this is horrible. I think C as well, but none of those are the real issue in my opinion. In my opinion the major problem is the drastic increase in mono-culture farming.

@josedavid $$\color{blue}{\huge\tt{Nice~}}$$ $$\huge\mathcal{to~meet~}$$ $$\color{red}{\huge\tt{You~!}}$$ According to Process of elimination, I think: The first option , Resulting crops are less nutritious, where, GMOs increase crop yields and promote efficient land use as they focus on less susceptible to diseases caused by such viruses, resulting in higher crop yields. the second option is not true: 70% of food in American grocery stores has been genetically engineered so plainly a mass market does exist for these goods. Increasing the quality of one crop has no effect on others. The third option, the costs of engineering crops are offset (at a profit) by higher production and lower pesticide needs of GE crops... Finally the forth option, resulting crops do have to be monitored and re-engineered. The moment a pathogen evolves which is able to colonize a certain plant, all the members of the plant species will be susceptible and so will need to be modified again.
