Reflective+ Outline on Critical thinking.
1. What does it mean to say that a plant has been genetically modified or :engineered ? What is the New Leaf Superior potato able to do as a result of being genetically modified?
2. Unlike Europe where produce that is genetically modified is clearly indicated on the label, people in the United States have no idea whether food they are eating has been genetically modified. Why are Europeans so concerned? Why isn’t our produce clearly labelled?
