You didn

t ask
for it, and you might not know about it. But you

probably already eaten some of it. It

s genetically engineered food.
Perfectly round tomatoes all exactly the same size and big fat chickens
are now an ordinary part of our meals. They are made that w
ay by
genetic engineering not by nature. Their genes have been changed.

Every living thing has genes. Genes carry information. They are
passed on from generation to generation. They make sure that humans
give birth to humans and cows give birth to
cows. They also make sure
that a dog cannot give birth to a frog, or an elephant to a horse. Genetic
engineers put duck genes into chickens to make the chickens bigger.
They put hormones into cows to make them produce more milk. In this
way new life fo
rms are created. This does not make them cheaper,
tastier or healthier.
t makes them easier and faster for farmers to grow.

However, the effects of genetic engineering on people

s health are

not known. Many of the genes which are used such as those

of insects

and mice are not part of the food we eat, so we do not know how


they may be. For example, people can develop allergies to

food which has been genetically engineered.

specialist, and his team announced they would begin to clone a human
being in 2001. Raelians, a r
eligious group, claimed that in December,
2002, the first human clone had been born.

Many scientist are worried. Animal cloners such as Ian Wilmut, the
scientist who cloned Dolly, were against the idea of human cloning.
Wilmut said it took 2
76 failed attempts before dolly was successfully
cloned. Dr. Jon Hill, another scientist who successfully cloned cows at
Texas A&M University, pointed out that while animal clones may appear
