GENETIC ENGINEERING



Genetic Engineering has been used many times around the world to predict
whether or not a child will be a boy or a girl and what their traits will be. I agree that
Genetic Engineering is useful and helpful to us in many ways, but
I do

know that
it is not
all good

and I disagree with most of what Genetic Engineering does and how scientists
use it
. It is a way for people and mostly scientists to play God. With it,

according to some
US Biotechnology Companies,
we can change how fast a pla
nt can
grow or how much or
how tall it
.
Not only can it change plants, but in Japan, male Japanese medaka fish have
genetically grown 83 percent larger than normal after they have been introduced to
Genetic
Engineering
.

Genetic Engineering can also affect
humans too in good and bad
ways.
According to American Diabetics
w
ithout it, we may have limited amount of
medicines to cure our illnesses, but with it, humans could
accidentally or purposefully

change their genes (traits) or their children’s’
traits and p
henotypes. This can also pass on
a disease created by the Genetic Engineering or by a parent who had their traits changed.
This goes back to scientists and other humans playing the role of God. This is why I do
not completely agree with Genetic Engineering
